Managing the Risk of Privileged Accounts and Privileged Passwords in Defense Organizations

Even IT environments that have two-factor authentication in place must still deal with many different types of passwords: service account, local account, Windows local administrator and Unix/Linux root account passwords. Managing them in a way that meets requirements can be a tedious full-time job, and can make even a "simple" job, like applying a hotfix, a complex, multi-step process that introduces far too much risk.

Administrative accounts and passwords are "the keys to the kingdom." Protecting against their misuse helps defense organizations secure sensitive information, protect infrastructure, and better meet their mission. With One Identity Privileged Password Manager and Privileged Session Manager, managing privileged passwords is easy and far more secure; this technical brief details how these privileged management solutions can be used in your agency.
