With the size, number, and frequency of data breaches increasing year over year, pressures caused by external security threats have never been greater. At the same time, the number of identities and volume of activities requiring access, compounded by the uptick in remote working, are expanding at a rapid cadence, increasing the internal threat surface. Many factors are driving this security threat expansion, including new identity types, such as Internet of Things (IoT), Operational Technology (OT), and mobile, among others, as well as the move to cloud and hybridbased applications.
This white paper discusses the evolving nature of external and internal cyberthreats, as well as the shortcomings of legacy IAM and IGA processes and solutions. It also describes how ForgeRock’s AI-driven Autonomous Identity solution provides real-time, continuous user access visibility, control, and remediation across the enterprise.
