OneLogin has announced the launch of its Delegated Administration offering, which enables organisations to adopt the Zero Trust principle of least privilege access. By empowering IT administrators to easily delegate access on a granular level, organisations can balance productivity requirements with the need to aggressively protect their organisation against security threats.
OneLogin’s Delegated Administration tool reportedly allows organisations to adopt the principle of least privilege access to enable their Zero Trust framework. Organisations can improve their security foot point by granting only the level of access needed to get the job done. By having the ability to provide refined admin privileges based on any combination of user, app, and role, companies can easily balance security with the need to enable the business.
According to a recent survey of over 700 technology leaders conducted by OneLogin, 75% of organisations agree that a Zero Trust model is key to breach prevention. Nevertheless, less than 12% of organisations actually have a strategy in place. In fact, 66% of respondents have admitted that some or a few users are being granted access privileges beyond what they require. Eighteen percent conceded that all of their users have excessive privileges.
“For organisations to adopt a Zero Trust framework, they must embrace the concept of least privilege access, meaning users are only given the minimum levels of access needed to perform their job. However, maintaining this baseline is challenging when organisations must accelerate employee productivity. As a result, IT and Security teams are challenged with balancing the operational needs of the business and maintaining a strong security posture,” said Damon Dean, Chief Product Officer, OneLogin.
“OneLogin’s Delegated Administration enables organisations to adopt the Zero Trust principle of least privilege access. Delegating simpler IT tasks to business units, departments, or teams, alleviates the burden on IT to support access requests and, thereby, reduces costs, saves time and ultimately protects their organisation against security threats.”
