The impact of remote work throughout the COVID-19 pandemic has caused both security professionals and the average technology user to be more aware of security concerns and how to address them. The 2022 Thales Access Management Index looks to identify the extent of that change, as well as the current state of access management and plans for access security across a range of industries. This report focuses on the Europe and Middle East region and covers respondents based in the U.K., France, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden and the UAE. The report analyses the responses from 1,000 respondents from midsize to large enterprises within many diverse verticals in the public and private sectors. The insights were gleaned from the survey data, and this report explores the impacts on identity and access management (IAM) security strategy and planning.
