SecZetta, the leading provider of third-party identity risk solutions, today announced that it has been included in the Gartner 2022 Market Guide for Insider Risk Management Solutions.
According to Gartner, organizational reliance on third parties has increased the need for insider risk monitoring. There is still a lack of targeted insider risk education and awareness despite a staggering 44.3% increase in insider incidents in a single year.
“Data shows that more than 60% of reported insider threat incidents were the result of a negligent employee or contractor, and the Verizon Insider Threat Report names third parties among the top 5 insider threat actors,” said David Pignolet, CEO of SecZetta. “These breaches are costly – organizations impacted by insider threats spent an average of $15.38 million in 2021, up 34% from $11.45 million in 2020. The need for breach management solutions internal risks are increasing and SecZetta is proud to be a key player offering these products to organizations around the world.
Gartner reports that the global transformation to a hybrid (remote and onsite) workforce has led many management teams to consider how to ensure secure work practices and data protection. They recommend that security and risk managers responsible for technology, information, and resilience risks:
- Increase data visibility and protection in the organization by developing a formal insider risk management program.
- Expand insider risk monitoring by including integrated third-party vendors and partner accounts.
- Reduce insider risk by implementing comprehensive security awareness training and tools to monitor indicators of unauthorized activity.
Gartner’s Market Guides feature research on a wide range of markets to help IT and strategy managers understand trends and important insights, and refers to SecZetta as a company that provides insider risk management solutions.
