Organizations seeking more efficient IT operations, better operational SLAs and improved cybersecurity can benefit from implementing Privileged Identity Management (PIM) solutions in conjunction with Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) frameworks. The combined technologies provide enterprises with enhanced monitoring and management of their powerful privileged accounts.
By themselves, SIEM applications lack the ability to correlate security events with human and automated actions conducted with privileged credentials. But BeyondTrust Privileged Identity, when integrated with your SIEM framework, closes a critical cybersecurity blind spot by identifying threats and anomalies and triggering an automatic mitigation.
BeyondTrust Privileged Identity is usually configured as a proactive control that secures the privileged credentials that hackers and malicious insiders need. However, when paired with a SIEM solution, it can also operate as a reactive control.
When threats raise an alarm in a SIEM system, those threats are often trying to capture privileged credentials to do harm. When that happens,BeyondTrust Privileged Identity can automatically jump into action and quickly change those credentials so that any captured credentials are rendered worthless.
