Privileged access security is essential: it restricts and protects access to the powerful administrative accounts that control organizations’ critical servers, databases, and networks.

The 2019 Study on Privileged Access Security by the Ponemon Institute, sponsored by Sila, surveyed 650+ North American IT and IT security professionals and found substantial lapses in securing sensitive access including:

56 %

of respondents said they expect the risk of privileged user abuse to increase over the next 12 to 24 months

62 %

of respondents said it was likely that their organization assigns privileged access rights that go beyond an individual’s role or responsibilities

54 %

of respondents said their organizations do not have the capabilities to effectively monitor privileged access

The status quo is not secure.

Business and IT leaders need to look beyond simple tool integration and a “check the box” mentality.

Dr. Larry Ponemon, Ponemon Institute
