Start Your Engines! It’s Zero Trust Privilege Test Drive Season!

As organizations struggle to protect the ever-expanding attack surface, they not only have to secure access to infrastructure, databases, and network devices, but also extend security controls to cloud environments. The modern threatscape now includes Big Data projects, DevSecOps, and hundreds of containers or microservices that represent what used to be a single server.

That’s why we have a vision of redefining legacy PAM with cloud-ready Zero Trust Privilege. Yet, as with anything, knowing how, when and where to start or progress…

While Gartner clarified that the ten projects were in no particular order, PAM was right there at the top. This was not a surprise to Centrify, as we’ve seen global cybersecurity spending reach $124 billion but privileged credential abuse is still the leading attack vector. Forrester estimates that 80% of breaches involve a privileged identity, and that 66% of companies have been breached five times or more….
