Venafi Study: German Organizations Overlooking Critical Security Components

Venafi®, the leading provider of machine identity protection, today announced the results of a study on the state of machine identity protection in Germany. The study included responses from 305 security stakeholders who are responsible for encryption in German organizations.

According to the study, 92 percent of security professionals believe the protection of machine identities is a critical security component for their organization. However, only 42 percent say the protection of machine identities is given equal priority when compared to human identities.

“It’s great to see that organizations are beginning to realize their machine identities need to be protected,” said Jeff Hudson, CEO of Venafi. “After all, the digital transformation of business is completely dependent on machines, not people. However, we know businesses already spend over $8 billion a year protecting human identities and almost nothing protecting machine identities.”

The study also revealed a major gap in the confidence levels of executives responsible for setting machine identity protection priorities when compared with line managers and individual contributors who are responsible for carrying out this work.

Additional findings from the study include:

  • Eighty-two percent of executives believe their organizations adequately protect the machine identities of Internet of Things devices while only 24 percent of individual contributors expressed similar confidence.
  • Eighty-one percent of executives feel their organizations adequately protect containers, but just 40 percent of individual contributors agree.
  • Ninety-three percent of executive respondents believe their organizations have invested sufficient money and resources to protect machine identities over the last year, compared with 61 percent for managers and 62 percent for individual contributors.

Machine identities govern the connection and communication of information between machines. To assure their unique identities, machines use keys and certificates – much like people employ usernames and passwords. Unfortunately, even though machine identities play a critical role in securing automated machine-to-machine communication, they are one of the least understood and weakly defended parts of company networks.

Compromised machine identities have a significant security impact on organizations. For example, cybercriminals can steal poorly protected code-signing certificates from legitimate companies and use them to sign malicious code. When signed with such a certificate, it doesn’t trigger any warnings, and unsuspecting users will mistakenly trust that the malicious code is safe to install and use.

“Unfortunately, we continue to see the same lack of prioritization of machine identity protection in every industry and every country around the world,” concluded Hudson. “Until businesses begin to understand how critical machine identity protection is to security and begin allocating resources to it, we’re going to continue to see successful, large-scale cyberattacks.”
