DENVER, Colo. — April 3, 2013 — Security professionals have embraced BYOD and they’re taking “anytime, anywhere” access to some pretty interesting locations according a new survey conducted by Ping Identity, The Identity Security Company™. Surprisingly, most also admit to employing poor password security practices.
The survey, based on 198 responses from attendees at RSA® Conference 2013, sought to discover how work habits are changing as a result of cloud and mobile enterprise trends. The results show:
A Tablet-Powered Workforce is Real
Even Security Professionals Have Bad Password Security Habits – As Points of Vulnerability Rise
Work Happens Anytime, Anywhere
“The data shows that the mobile-powered workforce is here to stay, but even those most concerned with security aren’t very secure users,” said Roger Oberg, Ping Identity Vice President of Marketing and Product Management. “It illustrates the need for a new cloud and mobile identity security model that addresses the new ‘anywhere’ reality. Enterprises embracing BYOD will benefit from standards-based SSO that eliminates passwords and login screens, and provides a central point of management and user control. The good news is that users love it and it’s more secure, no matter where they log in for work.”
