The Problem with PAM
Data breaches have become commonplace, and despite significant investments in perimeter and endpoint security, breaches typically begin at the desktop and server layers of an organization’s IT infrastructure and spreads through the overabundance of privileged access rights (i.e. standing privilege) to each system and other misconfigurations and vulnerabilities attackers exploit.
Furthermore, traditional PAM providers focus on controlling access to accounts and their passwords, not on the activities the administrator needs to perform. The result is minimal reduction of an organization’s attack surface because the accounts still exist on the endpoint and can still be compromised.
Stealthbits’ Privileged Access Management Solution
Traditional Privileged Access Management tools are far too complex.
Stealthbits’ Privileged Access Management solution makes it easy to overcome the challenges and limitations of traditional PAM offerings and secure, control, manage, and monitor privileged account usage through a just-in-time, just-enough privilege approach.
Discover privileged account with standing access to system, application, and data infrastructure.
Onboard accounts for management and remove standing privileges to reduce the attack surface.
Grant the exact level of permission needed to the user to perform the desired administrative function.
Connect the user directly or via proxy for advanced session monitoring.
Remove the user’s access completely and clean the system to match desired state, eliminating advanced credential theft techniques.
“As previously alluded to, these cases begin with a phish, featuring an attachment whose mission in its malware life is to steal credentials. If you have legit creds, it doesn’t take a very long time to unlock the door, walk in and help yourself to what’s in the fridge.”
