PARIS, April 21, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — To meet the new challenges of the digital world, WALLIX (Euronext: ALLIX), European cybersecurity software publisher and expert in access and identity security, has developed a vision, “PAM for all”, allowing it to offer its customers the promise of a secure digital transformation for all. To realize this vision, WALLIX now offers WALLIX PAM4ALL, a unified solution that brings together all WALLIX technologies and goes beyond the protection of privileged accounts by securing, according to the principle of least privilege, all users and workstations at risk of an organization.

New digital challenges

The need for secure access to data has never been greater. With the pandemic, our world is experiencing an acceleration of its digital transformation (standardization of telework, massification of cloud services, strong growth in the number of mobile terminals, etc.). These new uses, which have allowed organizations to continue to operate during these long months of confinement, considerably multiply the number of access points to the IT infrastructure of organizations. There are so many potential new entry points for hackers that there is an urgent need to secure them to protect data. In addition, the results for 2021 are clear: 40 billion pieces of personal data have been hacked, an increase of 78% compared to 2020.[1].

This figure will increase as cybercrime becomes industrialized, thereby significantly increasing the cyber risk to our economy. Today, hacker organizations operate like businesses, which is why cybercrime is currently considered the third largest economy in the world. Its overall cost is estimated at $6 trillion by 2021 and $10.5 trillion by 2025, against $3 trillion in 2015[2] This cost includes damage and destruction of personal and/or financial data, loss of productivity, embezzlement, fraud, theft of money, but also of intellectual property and damage to reputation. There are also the costs induced by the disruption of the organization’s activity, sometimes long after the attack, and finally the investments necessary to restore the hacked data and systems.

We live in a paradigm shift where perimeter security no longer exists, where users – whether human or machine – are increasingly mobile and need access to organizations’ data, at any time, from anywhere. The data itself becomes volatile (cloud storage, SaaS solutions, automation, etc.) to control costs and gain agility. This affects all sectors, especially the most critical ones such as health, industry, insurance or public services, which urgently need to secure all these accesses, to ensure business continuity, while respecting regulatory requirements. in terms of risk management and data protection. Data must remain accessible to all to continue to innovate and thus ensure economic competitiveness.
