The Privileged Credential Security Hole

A major data breach can begin with the compromise of just one privileged password. Criminal hackers and malicious insiders can exploit an unsecured credential to gain the persistent, administrative access they need to anonymously move around your network and extract your sensitive data at will.

BeyondTrust Privileged Identity makes it easy for you to automatically randomize your privileged account passwords on all systems in the enterprise.

You’ll stay one step ahead of the bad guys by changing your credentials faster than attackers can exploit them. And you’ll more easily comply with today’s regulatory mandates – including PCI-DSS, SOX, HIPAA and others – that require frequent updates to your privileged credentials.

Perform Continuous Password Changes with Less Effort

With Privileged Identity's password generator, privileged credentials are automatically randomized after use. Defend against cyber attacks, like "pass the hash," while also limiting insider threats by eliminating static passwords that would be known to IT staff and contractors.

Schedule updates for each privileged credential in your enterprise – on premises and in the cloud - as frequently as necessary. Even every couple of hours. This negates the damage inflicted by zero-day attacks and other advanced cyber threats. Even if an intruder compromises a credential, it has a limited lifetime. The stolen credentials cannot be leveraged to leapfrog between systems and anonymously access systems with sensitive data.

With Privileged Identity, you can make each password unique and cryptographically complex - up to 127 characters — eliminating shared passwords and preventing brute force attacks.

Boost IT Productivity

By automating your privileged credential updates, you eliminate time-consuming and error-prone manual password changes.

BeyondTrust Privileged Identity can change credentials on 2,000 machines per minute per node, without any human interaction. This frees your IT staff up to perform other strategic operations.
