What is Privileged Access Management?

Privileged access management (PAM), also called privileged account management or privileged identity management, focuses on managing privileged users and accounts. This can come in many different forms from admin, domain, network, cloud, emergency, service to application accounts.

Privileged users have a higher level of access to critical systems within an organization. Privileged users can change system configurations, access secure data, change accounts, install software and much more. Privileged accounts are often used by machines, IT systems or cloud software for intercommunication. The accounts are usually set up once and passwords are rarely changed.

Most companies have hundreds, if not thousands, of privileged credentials making them hard to manage and secure. A typical organization has more privileged account logins and passwords then individual or employee logins.

Privileged Accounts

Accounts used by machines to communicate between each other – Applications, Databases, Servers, Workstations, Network Devices, Security tools, SaaS Consoles, Cloud tools; Built-in IoT accounts (sensors, printers, routers, coffee machines, cameras, beacons)

How Privileged Access Management Tools Help

Privileged management strategies that rely on manual processes, spreadsheets and basic password enforcement are no longer enough. In fact, Gartner lists privileged access management software as a top security project.

PAM software helps by providing end-to-end control for your privileged passwords, secrets, certificates and documents. PAM systems do this by putting privileged credentials inside a secure vault or repository. System admins and other privileged users must go through the PAM solution and be authenticated in order to access their credentials. The PAM software logs, records and monitors each session. Credentials and passwords are reset after each use for the highest level of security.

Using a PAM solution, you can easily secure, manage, monitor, and record privileged sessions to meet audit requirements while limiting your risk of security breaches and regulatory issues.
