The State of Enterprise Identity

Identity is Evolving.

In the face of unprecedented challenges, enterprises are rethinking how they approach identity security — and the role it plays in reducing organizational risk and maintaining regulatory compliance.

This inaugural research study by Saviynt and the Ponemon Institute examines enterprise risk associated with identity & access management, and how organizations are actively managing these risks with security strategies and technology. The report includes responses from more than 1,000 IT and IT security practitioners in the United States (627) and EMEA (416).
