Identity security has evolved to become one of the most important, business-critical cyber defence strategies.
Identity security solutions focus on verifying the identification of a user so no unauthorised users can access protected information. This safeguard prevents malicious actors from obtaining company data or damaging IT infrastructure and any deliberate or accidental data privacy breaches that violate regulations.
Ultimately, identity security is about the tools and procedures a company or individual can deploy to regulate and streamline identity access management.
So, why has identity security become so important?
With so many people now working from home, it’s broadly accepted that the frontline of defence has moved. The perimeter has shifted away from firewalls and into the hands and devices of employees, meaning remote and distributed workers must be appropriately armed to protect their credentials to secure their company’s assets.
