Security Risk Management
Inadequate password policy can be a security risk for any enterprise
Unauthorized access to critical data can be a significant security risk for any organization. With security risks from an external threat becoming more manageable, there is still a need to determine the best way to guard against internal security risks from employees gaining access to sensitive data. This security breach can be costly to both a company's reputation and bottom line. Passwords should help prevent security risks however, users today have to remember multiple passwords which often results in them writing passwords on sticky notes and leaving them on their desk where they can be seen and used by others. And, with lack of accountability due to untracked access, disgruntled users may access and manipulate data that could be risky for any organization.
Single sign-on (SSO) technology can simplify password management, allowing users to sign in to the network once and gain access to their authorized applications. But many SSO solutions are expensive to purchase and complex to deploy. For companies seeking to mitigate security risk with an SSO solution that is affordable and easy to manage, Imprivata offers OneSign® Single Sign-On.
