SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., June 21, 2016 - OneLogin, the identity management provider bringing speed and integrity to the modern enterprise, today announced new research that demonstrates that U.S. employees have digital device practices that are exposing their employers to increased security risks.
According to research conducted by Arlington Research, on behalf of OneLogin, based on a survey of 1,022 respondents in the U.S. in May 2016:
“Security breaches are a near-daily occurrence in the news. Given that it takes only one compromised account to lead to a breach, these lax security practices are troubling, especially when you consider that they could take place at your bank, at your children’s school, or in your local government. A breach at one location can lead to others, especially with bad password habits like password reuse,” said Alvaro Hoyos, Chief Information Security Officer at OneLogin. “Technical controls should be put in place to ensure only authorized workers are accessing data securely and these should be reinforced with security awareness efforts as well. For example, using single sign-on and identity management solutions to enforce role based access and step up authentication establishes a strong security foundation, and coupling that with periodic security awareness training or simple reminders, strengthens that foundation.”
Nowadays, companies have a plethora of security solutions available to help manage these threats. Compiling a comprehensive list would be a daunting task, so here are a few practical ones that you can easily deploy:
“OneLogin’s mission is to enhance the security of the modern enterprise, which is becoming increasingly borderless as employees embrace remote work,” said Al Sargent, Senior Director at OneLogin. “The rampant use of mobile devices to access corporate applications means that companies cannot rely on perimeter security; they must secure at the point of authentication. Thankfully OneLogin makes it easy for IT teams to adjust to this new reality.”
