What is identity sprawl and how can I control it?
Identity sprawl is the modern digital phenomena – and security challenge – that results from the ongoing effort to equip a workforce with the resources and tools to do their job more efficiently. As applications are updated or replaced, new user accounts are created, and the user data is redundantly stored. A recent global survey of IT security professionals revealed that over half of large organization maintains 25 separate silos of user data and 20 percent have more than 100 systems to maintain and secure. With separate instance of user data on each different system, whether its on-prem, in the corporate cloud or a SaaS resource, that’s a lot of credentials to protect and processes to secure. That’s identity sprawl.
What can I do about the fragmented way my organization manages identities and accounts?
You can consolidate all identity data and user permissions management to one resource. Operate with the resources and tools you need but lock down security by controlling and monitoring access and activity, automate initial incident responses, and by extending your visibility to cloud-based and third-party resources. Behavioral analytics capabilities can extend security to protect your organization from internal threats from privileged users and compromised privileged user credentials. A unified identity security platform breaks down silos of user data, applies consistent governance across the enterprise and delivers high-definition visibility into user access and activities.
