Privileged accounts serve an important purpose in any organization. Because they let designated users perform important administrator level tasks. In a perfect world, there would be very few of these users. And all of them would remain trusted employees who carefully guard the keys to the kingdom. In reality though, diverse IT environments and the specialized nature of many administrative tasks cause an explosion in the number of users that need access to privileged accounts.
Until what used to be an exclusive club can now seem more like a music festival. And some operating systems only have one Privileged Account. So you're left with no way of tracing who actually performed certain operations or natively assigning access that isolates privileged users by their roles. So it's no wonder that with more and more of these privileged users popping up, each with huge collections of identities, access rights, and passwords, none of which are governed by consistent policies, oversight, or management, these king users can start to feel like royal pains. It's enough to make even the most seasoned IT professional wake up in a cold sweat.
