Editor’s Note: This post was originally published in July 2018. While much of the information about data access and data protection remain relevant, it was time to update for current best practices.

How do we provide the authentication security and easy access that our employees need, while protecting our company assets? Fully 92% of today’s businesses feel that their employees may reuse their personal credentials for company purposes.

Does this resonate with your business?
