ESG Brief: Advanced Cyber Threats Demand a New Privileged Account Security Model

ESG's "Advanced Cyber Threats Demand a New Privileged Account Security Model" report reveals that while "59 percent of enterprise organizations are certain or fairly certain they have been the target of an APT," many continue to rely on marginal adjustments to privileged account security despite the increasing number of APTs linked to these accounts. According to Senior Principal Analyst Jon Oltsik of ESG, "tactical changes don't go far enough. Rather, CISOs need to think in terms of a privileged account security architecture offering central control, management, monitoring, and oversight of privileged accounts."
