Secure the digital supply chain’s people, systems and things with IAM

Get the IDG report

In a recent IDG report, 50 percent of surveyed IT and security professionals say they rely heavily on outsiders to run their business.1 And, while this digital data interdependence drives innovation, it also causes identity and access management (IAM) complexities. If left unchecked, these complexities can pose cybersecurity risks to the supply chain’s people, systems and things.

Defend the digital supply chain against cybersecurity threats

Use IAM to stop security threats hiding in plain sight. Read the new IDG report, External Digital Data: Essential for Business, a Challenge to Safeguard and learn why:

  • An outside/in approach that ensures an assigned digital identity for every user is the most effective to securing digital ecosystems and information exchange.
  • The most common access management strategies put enterprises at risk of a data breach.
  • 44 percent of surveyed respondents say they are only "somewhat confident" and 4 percent are "not very confident" in their IAM abilities.2
