One of the most recent in a series of publications by the company, the report comes at a critical time for many organizations. Last year alone, cyber attacks increased by 50% and companies experienced a 17-year high in the average cost of a data breach at $4.24 million.
Implementing a JIT approach to access management can help organizations minimize security risks and reach the target of zero standing privileges (ZSP). The technology is designed to grant temporary access to an authorized user for the completion of a task and then remove that access when the task is finished.
In doing so, an agitator will be denied the permission needed to proceed with a breach. Additionally, security teams gain broader control of attack surfaces and eliminate standing and excessive privileges, which are a critical security concern for most cloud-based organizations.
The report also includes a breakdown of what leading technology research firm Gartner, Inc. calls the Five Ws of Privileges Access, which helps determine who has access to what, where they access it, and for what reason. Typical people who require access to secure systems include administrators, operators, developers, project staff, and third-party contractors and vendors.
Based in Glendale, California, Britive is on a mission to eliminate the security risks associated with using cloud infrastructure. The Britive multi-cloud privilege management platform is a flexible tool that allows clients to significantly reduce data security management costs. With just-in-time permissioning, pre-authorized access privileges with automatic expiration, and proactive threat monitoring, it allows companies to maintain a ZSP security posture. The platform is easily integrated with existing cloud and SaaS services for a seamless and cost-efficient experience.
A spokesperson for the company said: “We provide actionable, objective insight to help organizations make smarter, faster technology decisions to stay ahead of disruption and accelerate growth. It’s essential to prioritize PAM as a cyber defense mechanism. It plays a key role in enabling zero trust and defense-in-depth strategies that extend beyond mere compliance requirements.”
