PAM Privileged Access Management Solutions and Benefits

Privileged Access Management (PAM) solutions help organizations manage their privileged accounts to secure their critical assets, stay compliant, and prevent data breaches.

Modern-day organizations face an array of challenges when securing the business from the risks of potential misuse of privileged accounts. Cybercriminals regularly target these privileged accounts to infiltrate critical information or inflict damage to an organization.

Therefore, the protection and management of privileged accounts are imperative to securing valuable information and protecting brand reputation.

What is Privileged Access Management (PAM)?

‘Privileged access’ is all about access to critical assets, including computers, networks, software applications, and other digital devices. Thus, Privileged Access Management (PAM) refers to the class of tools, systems, technologies, and solutions used to secure, monitor, and control access to an organization’s sensitive information and critical assets.

Why do Organizations Need PAM Services and Solutions?

Privileged accounts host users such as c-suite executives, business managers, and administrators with the highest level of access and control over networked devices, databases, applications, and servers.

Hence, privileged accounts must be managed and controlled with the utmost care as they are the gateway to an organization’s most critical assets.

However, many enterprises grapple with privileged access management for several reasons, including:

  • Human error or negligence that improperly provides privileged access to ineligible or unauthorized employees.
  • Technology sprawl and excessively complex IT infrastructure make it resource-intensive and time-consuming to manage privileged access.
  • Shortage of expertise to effectively manage a PAM system.
  • Relying on manually-intensive, error-prone processes to manage privileged accounts increases costs and risks.
  • Lack of tools and processes that effectively manage and audit privileged accounts, exposing the business to security threats and compliance risks.

A perfect privileged access management service provider can effectively address the above and many such concerns to secure privileged accounts.

Privileged Access Management Identity Access Management
Focuses on managing administrative and privileged users Focuses on authenticating and authorizing general users
Users will have access to a larger number of privileged accounts and business and technical functions Users will have access to a low number of business-specific applications
Limited standard protocols Large ecosystem of protocols and authentication mechanism to secure identities
Covers smaller attack surface Covers large attack surface of access from users across the organization
