Privileged accounts refer to the powerful accounts that grant special access, typically administrative access to systems and applications. These accounts can be associated with human users and non-human entities such as application and machine identities.
In an enterprise IT environment, these accounts exist in the form of administrator accounts, superuser accounts, root accounts, local administrator accounts, domain administrator accounts, secure socket shell keys (SSH keys), service and application accounts. These are also called ‘secrets’ from a DevOps context.
Riding on the administrative powers of these accounts, a host of activities such as installing or removing software, configuring critical system settings, modifying or deleting data can be performed, which otherwise cannot be done as a normal or standard user. Because of the very nature of the activities that can be performed, proactive management of these accounts becomes critical from a security perspective to prevent unauthorized activities and safeguard the applications, infrastructure, and confidential data.
Organizations face several challenges when it comes to securing privileged accounts. Attackers exploit these loopholes to gain a foothold on machines, move laterally in the network and escalate privileges to attain their targets. Most of the security issues arise due to the way we handle privileged accounts.
Securden Unified PAM is a full-featured privileged access security solution that combines Password Vaulting, Privileged Account Management, Remote Access / Remote Session Management, Application Password Management, Privilege Elevation and Delegation Management, and Endpoint Privilege Management in a single package.
It helps IT teams to securely store, protect, and automate the management of all high privileged account passwords, keys, and identities. It enables IT administrators to centrally control, audit, monitor, and record all access to critical IT assets, thereby reducing risks related to privileged access.
Securden can be deployed in minutes on a server on-prem or hosted on private cloud instances.
Centrally store, manage, and control access to all privileged accounts, including passwords, keys, certificates, and documents. Prevent identity thefts and unauthorized access to credentials. Minimize attack surface and reduce security risks.
In the absence of centralized management, privileged accounts are left uncontrolled and unmonitored resulting in chaos. Consolidate accounts, establish access controls, enforce policies, eliminate system lockouts, and improve IT teams’ efficiency.
Industry and government regulations (such as PCI-DSS, HIPAA, ISO 27001, NERC-SIP, and others) mandate controlling and continuously monitoring privileged access. Ensure and demonstrate compliance to various regulations by enforcing policy-based controls, audit trails, and reports.
