With 63% (2016 Verizon DBIR) of confirmed data breaches involving weak, default or stolen passwords, it’s never been more important to apply discipline and accountability over enterprise credentials.

Top-tier companies were much more likely to have a centralized password management policy – 92 percent of them do, in contrast with just 25 percent of bottom-tier organizations.
