Privileged Access Management - SITS
Privileged Access Management at a glance

Privileged identities, such as accounts or applications, often provide access to critical systems, sensitive data, or even other user accounts. PAM is your ally in reducing ransomware attacks and data breaches caused by identities with excessive rights—whether they’re users or applications. It also governs access such rights for partner and supplier companies connected to your network, safeguarding your supply chain.

The Threats of Privileged Accounts

Elevated Privileges come with Elevated Risks.

Privileged accounts are essential for important admin tasks like security checks or audits, but without proper security measures in place, can easily become a vulnerability.

  • InIn today's remote world, hackers can gain access to your privileged accounts and steal data from servers, databases, main systems, web services, cloud services, VMs, or DevOps.
  • InRansomware attacks can hack critical data if key accounts aren't protected by privileged access.
  • InEmployees who have long left the company may still possess elevated rights, allowing easy ``return`` if security measures are inadequate.
  • InInternal threats: Insufficient control and monitoring of access by high-privilege employees can lead to insider risks.
  • InRegulatory requirements like GDPR, HIPAA, SOX, PCI DSS, or CCPA demand careful handling of privileged accounts.

Frequently Asked Questions

Identity and Access Management (IAM) is a framework that ensures only the right individuals have appropriate access to technology resources within an enterprise. It facilitates the management of identities and the assignment of access rights based on defined policies, thus ensuring secure and efficient user identification and authorization.

Privileged Access Management (PAM) specifically focuses on 'privileged' accounts that have extensive access to critical systems and data. PAM solutions monitor and control privileged access, restricting the use of privileged accounts to ensure they are used under stringent conditions. PAM is, therefore, a specialized area of IAM that deals with the heightened risks and security requirements associated with privileged accounts.

IGA (Identity Governance and Administration) offers a comprehensive view of identity management and access control. It includes features like access certification, policy management, Role-Based Access Control (RBAC), reporting, and compliance management. IGA solutions provide a framework for defining, reviewing, and managing access rights within organizations, as well as ensuring adherence to access policies and compliance requirements.

IAM, PAM, and IGA enable comprehensive management of user identities and access rights, thus safeguarding data privacy. They protect against unauthorized access and data breaches, improve operational management, and support compliance with data protection regulations and requirements. With the specific controls each discipline offers, businesses can enhance their security while ensuring efficient operational workflows.

In the context of IAM, 'identities' refer to the digital credentials and attributes that uniquely identify a person or service within an IT system. Identities may include:

  • Username and Password: The basic credentials a user needs to access a system.
  • Biometric Data: Fingerprints, facial recognition, or other physical characteristics used for authentication.
  • Digital Certificates: Electronic documents that verify a person's or machine's identity and enable secure communication.
  • Tokens: Physical devices or software-based keys used in authentication to create additional layers of security.
  • Attributes: Additional user information such as departmental affiliation, role in the company, or permission levels.

Managing these identities involves creating, updating, monitoring, and deleting user accounts and permissions within a company. Identity management systems ensure that only authorized individuals have access to sensitive systems and data, playing a crucial role in protecting against unauthorized access and cyber attacks.
