IT admins have more responsibility than ever to protect corporate identities. Their roles are critical to ensuring that enterprises continue to function optimally and securely. But employees will likely take the path of least resistance when it comes to selecting, rotating and storing passwords. By forcing users to practice better password management, IT plays a crucial role in protecting corporate identities, private data, and the livelihood of the company as a whole.

Corporate identities are the most valuable digital asset for hackers today. They are constantly being attacked and are perpetually at risk. Identities are the proverbial keys to the kingdom, and include private enterprise applications, devices, networks and data. If a hacker were to gain access to the right credentials, it could be devastating to an organization.

One of the best ways to keep corporate identities safe is to practice proper password management. From an IT perspective, this entails determining the types of passwords that are acceptable and where they are housed on the company's systems. It also focuses on having a unique password per service where possible.
