Password management is a useful first line of defense but once access has been granted (legitimately or otherwise), the user can act as he or she pleases, undetected.
Knowing which users are accessing IT infrastructure from log data helps but real-time session monitoring provides deeper insights into what commands users are issuing.
Establish a centralized access control point for authentication and authorization without changing user work flows. Enforce granular, command-level policies and get alerts or terminate a session when a policy violation occurs.
Rules-based security tools can’t detect unknown or unknowable threats. By identifying unusual or risky behavior, Privileged Account Analytics can detect compromised privileged accounts and suspicious insider activity.
Prevention and detection are only part of the solution. Responding quickly to an incident to determine who did what can limit the damage done by an attacker.
