Faster Incident Response

Resolve security incidents fast

Following a security incident ‘who did what?’ is one of the most critical, yet most difficult, questions to answer. Analyzing thousands of text-based logs to determine the responsible party is hugely time and resource intensive. With free text content search and movie-like session playback, Privileged Access Management reduces the time and costs attached to incident resolution.

Balabit responds to four key challenges:

Shared Accounts

When account sharing makes establishing responsibility for session events difficult.

No Contextual Data

When reliance on log data or session meta-data leads to a lack of session context.

Inaccessible Data

When log data is either not readily available, or analysis is too time consuming.

Incomplete Data

When insiders disable logging to cover their tracks and files are incomplete.

Key benefits

Fast Investigations

Searchable, movie-like session playback enables security teams to see exactly what an attacker has done.

Time to Value

Turnkey solutions that can be deployed in days, saving the cost of long professional services projects.

Deep Visibility

Capture privileged session detail and use behavioral biometrics to enable detection of identity theft.

Seamless Integration

Easy installation of security tools, including password management systems, ticketing and multi-factor authentication.


How to use PSM effectively within an overall PAM solution



Privileged Access Management goes beyond password-based authentication to protect your business against privileged access misuse. The PAA component uses data from PSM, helping you to monitor privileged access user behavior against pre-defined, constantly updated profiles. In doing so, you can stop hacks before they happen.
