Both line-of-business and IT professionals see benefits in bring-your-own-identity (BYOID) initiatives, in which social networking or digital IDs are used for application log in, according to a joint study conducted by the Ponemon Institute and CA Technologies. The 3,115 IT and business professionals surveyed for the report also agreed that more security is needed to increase BYOID adoption. Although the report, "The Identity Imperative for the Open Enterprise 2014," finds that BYOID deployment using social IDs is still in the early stages, interest is high. Both IT and business users agreed that an important reason for BYOID adoption was to achieve stronger identity credentials. However, business users cited capturing attributes about users as the biggest benefit. This indicates that identity is now considered a value asset that can provide data, drive incremental revenue and help maintain customers, according to the report. Here is a look at the survey's top findings that indicate the benefits that BYOID can offer to both line-of-business and IT teams.
