June 2022 Spotlight: 451 Research Password Management Report
If passwords are the primary target for cybercriminals, then, what are organizations doing to protect employee and business data? The latest enterprise password management study by 451 Research sheds light on this very question.
To understand enterprise password management preferences and adoption trends, research and advisory firm 451 Research (part of S&P Global Market Intelligence) recently conducted a global study that polled senior enterprise security leaders in the United States, United Kingdom, Japan, and Australia. According to 51% of U.S. survey respondents, preventing credential theft and account takeover attacks is the top reason for adopting password managers. These findings offer guidance on navigating challenges and strengthening online security in the workplace. Visit our blog to access the full report.
