Keep Identity Real with MFA and Strong Credentials

Would you bet your business on the strength of every employee’s password?  If you haven’t deployed business-grade MFA and credentials management throughout your organization, you are probably on the losing end of that bet.  Here’s why:

  • 74% of 2022 breaches involved the human element, including stolen credentials, according to the Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report (1) 

  • 51% of people use the same password for work and personal accounts (2) 

  • 24 billion credentials were made available on the dark web in 2022 (3)

Despite the challenges, passwords are not going anywhere any time soon. Even early adopters of passwordless authentication find themselves in countless situations where passwords are required, and passwords are one of the factors in multifactor authentication. Reality is…the password needs to be protected to keep authentication strong and keep your employees identities real.
