Equifax. Target. Now T Mobile. Identity security breaches are occurring rampantly, yet it seems like no one is taking them seriously. We’ve compiled some recent statistics that illustrate some of the underlying reasons behind the surge in compromised identities. It’s time to take identity security seriously, and you can see why in this infographic:
The time to protect your organization from the next big breach is now. To learn more on the matter, be sure to check out Why It’s Time to Take Identity Security Seriously, our exposé on modern security breaches.
Identity Security & JumpCloud
At JumpCloud, the user identity is at the core of everything we do. By extension, that means that identity security is our top priority. You can take a look at some of JumpCloud’s security practices here – from two-way TLS authentication and encryption to third-party assessments and independent audits (e.g. Type 1 SOC). We also take the steps listed in the ‘What Can You Do?’ section at the bottom: from requiring MFA to mandatory security training for all new employees (and at regular intervals after). Ultimately, we understand that our cloud-based directory is only valuable to the extent that it is secure.
Organizations that choose JumpCloud benefit from a variety of security features:
- Password Complexity and Rotation
- MFA for Mac & Linux
- Unique WiFi Credentials with RADIUS
- Event Logging
- System Policies (e.g. disable USB, enforce lock-screen settings)
- SSH Key Management
If you have questions about how to improve your identity security and if JumpCloud could help, simply reach out to us and talk with one of our technical specialists. We also offer a free demo for anyone who is considering our platform.
