Last year, over $80 billion was spent on cyber security (Gartner), yet 2/3rds of organizations were still breached (Forrester). The reason? 81% of data breaches involved weak, default or stolen passwords (Verizon). Join Centrify to learn why current threats and today’s hybrid IT environment require changes to old security models and how Identity Services defends your organization against the most common cyberattacks. We’ll examine: the current (broken) state of security and the role identity plays in cyber attacks, the massive rethink underway that redefines security to follow identity, how identity services reduce the risk of breaches by over 50%, and how Centrify can uniquely help reduce risk through the power of identity services.
