More than 80% of organizations have reported an identity-related breach.
Machine identities make up more than 40% of all identities in the average enterprise today. This number is expected to grow each year.
By 2026, it’s estimated that new devices will connect to the Internet at a rate of 5,000 per minute.
The chain-of-trust for legacy automated identity services ends with a certificate authority and not the machine. Every cert issued to a machine is an entirely different identity.
Give machines their own identity and secret credential system (Like a global passport). They operate and manage the system to build a chain of trust in the machine identity as it is used.
Legacy automated identity services do not meet ‘zero trust’ principles that require explicit trust verification. Machine identity certs are issued without trust verification.
Establish workload identity and trust on deployment and verify it frequently. Rotate the identity frequently, too, to prevent identity theft attacks.
Connecting machines (workloads) across identity domains is complex, costly, and challenging. The inability to determine identity trust across cloud environments increases risk, complexity and costs.
A decentralized identity management system with mutually verifiable workload identity credentials and cloud native protocols produces high-trust, on-demand connections between workloads across all cloud environments.
