The proliferation of SaaS, web, and cloud-based tools in the workplace has changed how we work. No matter what the job, there seems to be an app or cloud service to make it simpler. While these tools enhance productivity, there are unintended downsides around security.
Most of these tools need a set of credentials for usage. According to Okta, the average company uses 88 apps. While each user only uses a few of those apps, there are still a lot of credentials for each employee to remember.
To manage this complexity, users take shortcuts. For example, they reuse passwords across services. They also use common phrases that are easy to guess. Many users don’t even try to make it hard on attackers — “123456” was the most common password of 2020.
