Organisations across the globe have felt and experienced the impact of 2020. Some have been able to navigate the changes better than others. Years of digital transformation efforts were completed within the span of weeks, with cloud apps quickly onboarded and cloud platforms being stood up to ensure continuity of goods and services to customers.

Enabling workers with the access they needed to be productive was top priority and, as a result, security policies may have been relaxed to ensure business and supply chains could continue to flow. The result for some has been a state of over-provisioned accounts, meaning users have been granted too much access – creating a bigger attack vector and more risk.

Organisations that solely rely on access management and authentication to manage identities are most susceptible to over-provisioning and hidden security risks. Managing an enterprise identity programme requires going beyond single sign-on and MFA. The good news is that an AI-driven identity management platform can quickly return rapid value while reining in security across all apps, data and cloud platforms.
