The Power of Identity Security: Insights Into Identity Security’s Role in Today’s Cybersecurity Landscape

The significance of identity security in cybersecurity has never been more pronounced. Identity management is arguably the linchpin of security, signifying the crucial divergence between maintaining safety and falling victim to threat actors.
And it will only grow more critical in the years ahead, according to Chern-Yue Boey, Senior Vice President, Asia Pacific, at SailPoint. Recent findings from SailPoint indicate a projected 14% growth of identities in organisations in the upcoming years. Today, on average, identities at enterprises include machine identities (43%), followed by customers (31%) and employees (16%).
These findings suggest that cybercriminals have a broader array of attack vectors to exploit, necessitating organisations to remain vigilant in managing numerous identities to mitigate the escalating risk of attacks.
To delve deeper into the pivotal role that identity security plays in today's technology-centric world, Cybersecurity ASEAN, the premier cybersecurity news portal in the region, has partnered with SailPoint, a leading enterprise identity security provider, to host Malaysia’s definitive identity management event of the year, the Identity Day: Connect Conference.
