SecZetta, the leading provider of third-party identity risk solutions, today announced it was included in the Gartner 2022 Market Guide for Insider Risk Management Solutions.
According to Gartner, organizational dependence on third parties has increased the need for insider risk monitoring. There continues to be a lack of focused education and awareness around insider risk despite a staggering 44.3% increase in insider incidents in a single year.
“Data shows more than 60% of reported insider threat incidents were the result of a careless employee or contractor, and the Verizon Insider Threat Report names third parties as one of 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 Insider Risk Management Solutions is growing and SecZetta is proud to be a key player offering these products to organizations worldwide.”
Gartner reports that the global transformation to a hybrid workforce (remote and on-site) has led to many management teams asking how to ensure secure work practices and data protection. They recommend security and risk management leaders with a responsibility for technology, information, and resilience risk should:
- Increase visibility and data protection in the organization by developing a formal insider risk program.
- Expand insider risk monitoring by including integrated third-party vendor and partner accounts.
- Reduce insider risk by implementing comprehensive security awareness training and tooling for monitoring for indicators of nonpermitted activities.
Gartner’s Market Guides feature research from a broad range of markets to help IT and strategic leaders understand important trends and insights, and references SecZetta as a company that offers insider risk management solutions.
