As IT environments grow increasingly more complex, it becomes highly challenging and onerous to track the constantly changing relationships between users and their associated devices and accounts. It’s even harder to clearly determine and report on precisely what access users have at any given time, or even if they’ve left the company. The lack of transparency into access puts enterprises in jeopardy of security breaches and failed audits.
The Role of Identity Access Management in the Enterprise
Identity and access management (IAM) is a pivotal piece of an organization’s security strategy because, properly implemented and matured, it allows them to definitely answer the most important questions relating to the integrity of their assets and systems, and access to those assets and systems. Misconfigured or inadequately managed privileged accounts are easy targets for adversaries and are often responsible for the lateral movement achieved during a breach.
So, how can organizations manage all these accounts and effectively control who has access to what?
An Integrated Identity Management Solution from BeyondTrust + SailPoint
BeyondTrust Password Safe unifies privileged password and privileged session management, providing secure discovery, management, auditing, and monitoring for any privileged credential. Password Safe enables organizations to achieve complete control and accountability over privileged accounts.
The bi-directional integration between BeyondTrust and SailPoint provides central management and visibility of exactly what privileged access management (PAM) entitlements users have to managed accounts and devices throughout an environment.
For a brief overview of the BeyondTrust/SailPoint integration, check out the video below.
In this video you will see how leveraging both BeyondTrust and SailPoint offers multiple benefits for organizations, including:
- Enhanced security by streamlining and automating PAM entitlements to managed assets as employees join, move within, or leave the organization.
- Reduced operational overhead by discovering and enforcing PAM hygiene on managed assets without manual intervention.
- Simplified path to compliance and certification by further consolidating PAM entitlements into audit campaigns
To achieve the critical IT risk management goal of securing all user access – whether privileged or un-privileged, you require a comprehensive view of all access. The BeyondTrust-SailPoint integrations gives you that oversight. Plus, it empowers your entire spectrum of users to seamlessly benefit from the access they need, while also maintaining strong and consistent security and compliance controls.
