PAM? Who's PAM?
Privileged Access Management, or PAM, is a system that securely manages the accounts of users with elevated permissions to sensitive and/or critical corporate resources. Privileged users are high-value targets for threat actors and cyber criminals. Managing and securing elevated access accounts reduces your cyber risk, helps prevent breaches and achieve compliance.
What should a PAM do?
Discover and consolidate accounts
Discover privileged accounts on your systems and devices, databases and applications.
Manage shared Admin passwords
Control, share, and audit Admin accounts, linking access and actions to individuals.
Protect SSH Keys
Securely store SSH keys and track their usage, and associate them with Unix devices for authentication and remote access.
Windows Accounts Management
Manage Windows domain, service and local accounts and the dependencies of service accounts.
Manage Application passwords
Eliminate hard-coded passwords that are embedded in configuration files, scripts and code.
Automatically randomize passwords of Admin, service and application accounts periodically.
A PAM should also allow you to tightly integrate security and access into your daily operations.
Launch secure remote sessions with a single click without revealing login credentials.
Record remote privileged sessions and continuously monitor activities.
Grant remote access to devices and applications without revealing passwords to users or 3rd parties.
Integrate with Active Directory for use authentication, onboarding and offboarding.
Track which IT staff have access to which accounts.
Deploying a PAM shouldn't require a team of consultants. An experienced security/technology team should be able to deploy it and have it fully operational in a few hours. Can your PAM do that?
