Users accessing Privileged Accounts, particularly administrative and system accounts on critical infrastructure, pose a significant risk to IT organizations. Malicious insiders with valid Privileged Account credentials can cause serious damage. They can steal data on a massive scale, wipe databases clean, misconfigure core networking devices and install malware on critical systems.  They also know how to avoid detection and cover their tracks.

Privileged Access Management can help prevent, deter, detect and respond to attacks involving Privilege Insider Threats.

Challenges

The Threat Within

Insiders know your IT environment and your weaknesses. They, by nature, act unpredictably so pattern-based detection tools like SIEM are ineffective.

Security Productivity Tradeoffs

Adding more layers of authentication can help your organize be more secure but they often make users’ lives more difficult and constrain business.

Assessing the Damage

Once an incident becomes known, it is often difficult to determine the extent of the damage caused by the attack.

Password Management Limitations

Insiders have valid credentials making traditional authentication tools like password vaults ineffective.
