Strengthening security against cyber threats: Unveiling One Identity Cloud PAM Essentials

In a rapidly evolving cybersecurity landscape, organizations across all industries and sizes face an ever-growing array of sophisticated threats. Privileged accounts, in particular, have become prime targets for hackers, with nearly every major breach in recent years involving unauthorized access. Breaches caused by phishing and compromised credentials (the most common type of attack) cost an average of $4.76M and take almost 11 months to resolve. As cyberattacks continue to rise in frequency and complexity, the need for robust Privileged Access Management (PAM) solutions has never been more critical.

The crucial role of PAM

PAM plays a pivotal role in safeguarding sensitive systems, data and resources by effectively managing privileged accounts. Analysts predict a significant surge in PAM adoption rates over the next few years, driven by heightened awareness among security leaders, acknowledging the critical necessity of PAM solutions. Regulatory requirements, the rapid shift to cloud environments, blurred enterprise security perimeters and an overall surge in cyberattacks underscore the importance of implementing robust PAM solutions and contribute to the increasing adoption of PAM. Furthermore, 10% to 20% of Gartner clients evaluating PAM tools for the first time indicate that their cybersecurity insurance mandates the deployment of such tools.

In response to these escalating concerns, One Identity is proud to introduce One Identity Cloud PAM Essentials.
