Gartner ® recognizes Identity-First Security Maximizes Cybersecurity Effectiveness

Analyst Report
Read the 2022 Gartner ® Identity-First Security Maximizes Cybersecurity Effectiveness to learn about how decentralization of cyber assets, devices and people makes traditional perimeter-based security strategies and tools insufficient. And see why today identity must be put at the core of the cybersecurity strategy, invest in continuous identity security controls and why ID North is recognized as a leader among other vendors.

Key findings
The broad adoption of cloud services, digital supply chains and remote access by employees working from anywhere has eroded the value of legacy security controls at the perimeter of the corporate network, positioning identity as the primary control plane for cybersecurity.
Static, inflexible and high-level identity and access management (IAM) policies are no longer a sufficient source of trust.
Identity-first security is an approach that makes identity-based controls the foundational element of an organization’s cyber security architecture.
