Every major IT or digital initiative results in increasing interactions between people, applications and processes, creating large numbers of digital identities. If these digital identities go unmanaged and unsecured, they can represent significant cybersecurity risk:
- Sixty-eight percent of non-humans or bots have access to sensitive data and assets.
- The average staff member has greater than 30 digital identities.1
- Machine identities now outweigh human identities by a factor of 45x on average.
- Eighty-seven percent store secrets in multiple places across DevOps environments, while 80% say developers typically have more privileges than necessary for their roles.
