Identity Defined Security Alliance (IDSA) Uncovers Identity Security Shifts

The surge of new identities. The army of remote workers. The growth of cloud. New identity-focused cyberattacks.

Managing the ecosystem of identities in the modern enterprise has never been more challenging—or carried such high stakes.

This new landscape has quickly revealed new challenges and risks, such as phishing and other identity-related attacks. These are exacerbated by the remote-first workforce where the traditional network perimeter has been eroded—alongside the efficacy of traditional security measures. As a result, identity has emerged as the key focal point of the security strategies of most forward-looking enterprises.

The Identity Defined Security Alliance (IDSA), of which BeyondTrust is a contributing member organization, assembled this report to take a closer look at how security strategies are keeping up in real time. Using data collected from more than 500 IT security or identity and access management professionals, this report documents the real impact of identity-centric security within everyday organizations.
