Passwordless procedures a long way off
B2B Cyber ​​Security ShortNews

Although authentication using passwords has long been criticized from a security perspective, companies are still years away from a passwordless reality. This is shown by a new study from Delinea, the specialist for solutions that seamlessly expand privileged access management. 68 percent of the IT decision-makers surveyed stated that passwords are far from “dead” in their companies. The aim of the report “The Future of Workplace Passwords: Not Dead, but Evolving*” was to better understand the future of passwords in the workplace - against the background of the spread of alternative authentication options in the consumer environment such as...

Finally: Passwords are dying out
B2B Cyber ​​Security ShortNews

Stolen passwords are one of the main risks, which is why passwords are increasingly taking a back seat. Additional authentication methods and security controls that push passwords into the background are changing the way identities are verified and proven.

When it comes to cyber insurance, the fine print matters
When it comes to cyber insurance, the fine print matters

When it comes to cyber insurance, companies are confronted with rising premiums, lower coverage amounts and stricter IT security requirements. Purchasing affordable and comprehensive cyber insurance is becoming an increasingly time-consuming and resource-consuming task for businesses. The process is increasingly taking six months or longer, as the "2023 State of Cyber ​​Insurance" report from Delinea, the specialist for solutions that seamlessly extend privileged access management, now shows. In addition, insurers are setting ever stricter requirements for the cyber security of companies and are increasing the number of exclusion criteria that make taking out a cyber policy increasingly unattractive for potential customers....

Ransomware Report: Attacks down for the first time

The ransomware threat landscape is beginning to ease, according to Delinea's 2022 State of Ransomware Report. The number of ransomware attacks has dropped significantly in the last twelve months, and many affected companies no longer pay ransoms. However, this is no reason for IT and security teams to lay back now: If the downward trend is to continue, appropriate budgets must be maintained and cybersecurity measures must continue to be implemented consistently. Sharp decrease in attacks compared to the previous year As the survey of 300 IT decision-makers reveals, only 25 percent of the companies have been…

Cyber ​​insurance: 80 percent of customers with claims

Cyber ​​insurance is in demand, but most of them hardly want to cover the risks anymore: almost 80 percent of the companies that have taken out cyber insurance have already made claims with their insurer, more than half of them more than once. This is the result of a survey* by Delinea, the specialist in privileged access management (PAM) solutions for seamless security. As a result, insurance companies are increasingly withdrawing from covering critical risks. For example, damage caused by ransomware or costs for data recovery are no longer covered by the policy of around 50 percent of the companies surveyed. In doing so, the…
