Bitwarden polled independent IT decision-makers across a range of industries who play a key role in enterprise purchasing decisions. This year’s findings show that passwordless technology is making its foray into business workflows, IT decision makers continue to look to the C-Suite to drive adoption of password management technologies, and that security concerns are influencing business decisions.
A majority (49%) of respondents are deploying or have plans to deploy passwordless technology.
Of that percentage, two-thirds (66%) have 1-2 user groups or multiple teams going passwordless
Around half (51%) are relying on the ‘something you are’ (biometrics, facial recognition, fingerprint, voice) form of passwordless authentication
Overall, 41% say ‘better security’ is the primary reason to deploy passwordless technology
A large majority (79%) of IT decision makers want their employer to require employees to use the same password manager across the organization
When asked what makes a good password manager, 60% cite security, 56% cite the availability of two-factor authentication (2FA), and 40% cite ease-of-use
Most IT decision makers want their employer to require all employees to use the same password manager throughout the organization.
Note to employers: if offered a complementary family account, 71% said they’d also be very likely to use a password manager at home.
A majority (60%) report their organization experienced a cyberattack within the past year and 49% report struggling with employees who use unauthorized devices or software without IT’s approval.
Most (80%, up from 75% last year) report having a ransomware mitigation strategy
