A number of high-profile security breaches over the last two years have highlighted the damage that a rogue systems administrator or stolen privileged credentials can cause. Today, fewer than half of all business organizations have deployed the type of privileged identity management (PIM) solution that could help improve the situation.
This Ovum Decision Matrix (ODM) provides an in-depth view of the leading PIM solutions that are available to deal with these issues. It compares their technology, the market position each vendor has achieved, their ability to execute, and the overall maturity of each offering.
Thanks to numerous, headline-making incidents in recent years,
cybercrime has risen toward the top of the concern list for many
organizations—and the customers with whom they do business.
You’ve heard many of the stories. Major health insurers, such as
Anthem, Premera BlueCross and CareFirst had personal information
for millions of their customers stolen. Sony Pictures experienced
a breach that not only embarrassed employees and adversely
impacted the release of the high-profile film, “The Interview,” but
also damaged systems and applications—making it extremely
difficult for the company to conduct business. The list goes on.
Some you maybe haven’t heard, like the one about CodeSpaces, a
provider of version management services to developers. When
attackers were able to gain access to its cloud-based management
consoles, they deleted the company’s entire infrastructure and
backups—ultimately forcing CodeSpaces out of business.
The bad news for organizations like yours is, thanks to the
Within any organization, the most dangerous users are those with privileged access to the company’s
most valuable and sensitive data assets. This includes systems administrators, business managers,
partners, suppliers, and service providers, and also takes into account the automated interactions
between business machines, systems, and applications. Privileged access has always been a
high-risk issue, but for too long, organizations have not understood or have chosen to ignore the risks,
preferring instead to rely on the integrity of the individuals and systems involved.

Cyber security is today an unavoidable concern for law firms and the legal sector at large, which oversees disproportionately large volumes of sensitive data and which is therefore an attractive target for sophisticated threat actors. From confidential information about mergers and acquisitions to disclosures made under attorney-client privilege, today’s law firms are inundated with data that would be disastrous if leaked, both for the results of individual cases and for these firm’s long-term reputations.
Indeed, this reputational damage diminishes the very trust upon which the legal profession is predicated, jeopardizing client relationships and hindering customer acquisition. Legal organizations lose 5% of their clients following a data breach, while significant or high-profile breaches can even prompt a firm’s eventual collapse, as was the case for Mossack Fonseca in the infamous Panama Papers breach.
In today’s increasingly digital business world, even the most private legal docum
The WannaCry ransomware attack in May
2017 crippled the UK’s National Health Service
(NHS) and disrupted a range of organizations
across 150 countries. Despite being a relatively
unsophisticated attack, WannaCry was
able to make such a global impact due to
preventable vulnerabilities that had largely gone
unaddressed. There were many more attacks in
2017, including high-profile breaches at Uber
and Equifax, where heeding cyber-security
recommendations may have reduced the impact
The scale and sophistication of cyber-attacks is
not slowing down – ranging from phishing scams
to cryptocurrency-based cyber-attacks, to statesponsored
attacks on industrial control systems.
These attacks present an ever growing challenge
and serve as a reminder that organizations
cannot afford to be complacent in the face of
cyber threats. We’re living in a time when cyberattacks
are a matter of when, not if, and security
professionals must focus on mitigating their
extent and damage.
