The clear message from this year's Global Password Security Report is businesses still have a lot of work to do in the areas of password and access security.
Businesses are increasing their use of important security measures like multifactor authentication - but unfortunately employees still have poor password hygiene that weakens the overall security posture of their company.
Even as many more businesses make the important investment in solutions to address password security and thus safeguard employee access, more action is needed after deployment to bring password hygiene up to par across the organization.
Highlights From This Year's Report Include:
- Worldwide: More than half of businesses globally have employees using multifactor authentication
- Risk: Password reuse is still widespread and contributes to lower Security Scores
- Mobility: The ability to access passwords on mobile significantly improves the experience - and employee adoption
- Initiatives: Internationally, increased regulations appear to be a driving factor in password security awareness, especially in EMEA and APAC
