The Great Resignation Triggers Security And Access Concerns

Share post:

58% of IT, developer and security experts have expressed concern about ex-employees leaving knowing how their organization accesses infrastructure.

These and many more are the findings of Teleport’s report on the State of Infrastructure Access and security, which highlights a growing concern on security as workers move from one job to another.

The report also highlighted the issue of accessibility faced by the remaining employees as they adapt to working outside their work environment.

Other important findings of the report include that 83% of respondents cannot guarantee ex-employees access to their infrastructure.

Managing infrastructural access is considered a shared responsibility, with 95% of respondents agreeing “somewhat” or “strongly” that greater visibility is crucial to the success of their business.

The majority of respondents still rely on outdated security methods, with 70% of respondents using passwords to access the infrastructure, while 53% still use VPN.

Organizations face the challenge of understanding complex architectures, and the report pointed out that decision-makers take into account developer productivity when considering infrastructure access technology.
