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.
