Why Machine Identity Management is Essential to Establish Zero Trust
Date: Monday, February 28 at 11am PT / 2pm ET
While adopting a Zero Trust model has become indispensable for building a strong cybersecurity framework, one common mistake that most organizations make is to limit their focus primarily towards securing human identities. Machine identities now outnumber human identities and are generally associated with privileged accounts, making them highly vulnerable. For organizations undergoing digital transformation in the current climate, devising an effective machine identity management strategy and integrating it with a Zero Trust architecture is the need of the hour.
According to a recent survey by AppViewX, more than 60 percent of organizations do not possess full awareness of certificates and keys across their digital assets. To manage machine identities effectively, the Zero Trust model should extend to cryptographic keys and digital certificates that are used to verify machine identities. Unless organizations integrate machine identity management into their Zero Trust architecture, they face the risk of falling prey to attacks that are targeted at non-human identities.
In this webinar, we'll discuss why machine identity management is crucial component in establishing a robust Zero Trust architecture, and how you can successfully gain better visibility over machine identities and automate the process of managing them.
What you'll learn:
- Causes for the unprecedented increase in machine identities
- Challenges in managing machine identities
- Limitations of enforcing Zero Trust without effective machine identity management
- Gaining visibility over the machine identities in your environment
