eBook: Developing a Comprehensive PAM Security Strategy

Privileged accounts are everywhere in the IT environment. They give IT the building blocks for managing vast networks of hardware and software that power the information-driven world. Yet for most people, they’re invisible. This chapter gives you the basics of Privileged Access Management (PAM) — understanding privileged accounts, what they do, and why it’s so important to protect access to them as the “keys to the kingdom” of your growing information empires.

Unfortunately, service accounts are often misused. To keep things running and avoid application downtime or insufficient privileges, they are often configured with high levels of privilege and passwords that are never changed and never expire. These common practices create a dangerous vulnerability for any organization. While most organizations have an incident response plan in place to handle system breaches, they haven’t evaluated the risk of a privileged account being compromised.

In this eBook, you will:

  • Understand strategies for developing a strong PAM strategy
  • Learn top ways to protect your organization
  • Ways to integrate PAM with your other security and operational functions
