Virtually every cybersecurity breach today involves the exploitation of privileged access. Privileges are initially exploited to infiltrate an IT environment; once compromised by cyber hackers, privileges are further leveraged to move laterally, access assets, install malware, and inflict damage. Many organizations assume that password management will solve the “privilege problem”—but password vaulting is only a partial solution.

Attend this webinar to learn how a new approach to Privileged Access Management – the Universal Privilege Management model – can help you to secure every user, session, and asset across your entire IT environment.

Covered topics will include:

  • Why relying on password management alone leaves dangerous gaps in protection
  • Disrupting the cyberattack chain with privileged access security controls
  • Steps to achieving rapid leaps in risk reduction
  • Technology Demonstration - Keys to a frictionless PAM solution that is invisible to end users
