Privileged Access Governance

Unify governance so users can request, provision and attest to privileged and user access.


Privileged access management (PAM) is an identity security solution that protects organizations from cyberthreats by monitoring, detecting and preventing unauthorized privileged access to critical resources to enhance cybersecurity posture.
Privileged accounts are prime targets for cyber attacks due to their extensive access rights. A breach of privileged accounts can lead to unauthorized access, data breaches, financial losses and damage to an organization's reputation. PAM helps mitigate these risks by enforcing strict access controls, monitoring privileged activity and facilitating accountability. This proactive approach significantly reduces the likelihood and impact of security incidents related to privileged access.
A modern, comprehensive PAM solution should include features such as password management (including secure storage, rotation and retrieval), session monitoring and recording, privilege elevation, multi-factor authentication (MFA), integration with other security tools, and audit and compliance capabilities.
PAM enhances security by enforcing the principle of least privilege, ensuring that users and systems have only the minimum level of access required to perform their tasks. It also enables organizations to implement role-based access control (RBAC), just-in-time (JIT) privileged access and multi-factor authentication (MFA) for added layers of security.
Yes, PAM solutions can seamlessly integrate with other security tools such as Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) systems, Single Sign-On (SSO) solutions, cloud Identity and Access Management (IAM) platforms, and vulnerability assessment tools. This integration not only enhances an organization’s overall security posture but also facilitates centralized monitoring and management of privileged access.
PAM solutions provide audit logs, reporting capabilities, and automated access reviews. These features help organizations meet regulatory compliance requirements such as GDPR, PCI DSS, HIPAA and SOX. By maintaining detailed records of privileged access activities, PAM solutions enable organizations to demonstrate compliance during audits and regulatory assessments.
Best practices for implementing PAM include regularly reviewing and updating privileged access policies and procedures, conducting security training and awareness programs for employees, implementing least privilege and role-based access controls, and regularly assessing the organization's security posture through penetration testing and vulnerability assessments.
PAM aligns with the Zero Trust security model by enforcing strict access controls and adhering to the principle that no one, whether inside or outside the organization, should be trusted by default. By implementing PAM solutions, organizations can embrace a least privilege approach and deploy just-in-time access controls to minimize the risk of privileged access abuse within the Zero Trust framework.
The benefits of using a PAM solution include an overall improved security posture, reduced risk of data breaches and insider threats, enhanced compliance with regulatory requirements, centralized management and monitoring of privileged access, and increased operational efficiency through the automation of access management tasks.
Organizations can kickstart PAM implementation by conducting a thorough assessment of their current privileged access management practices and security posture, identifying critical assets and privileged accounts, evaluating PAM solutions that best fit their needs, and developing a phased implementation plan with clear goals and milestones. It's also essential to involve key stakeholders from IT, security and compliance departments in the planning and implementation process to ensure a collaborative and holistic PAM adoption.
