It's never a bad time to review core security controls and capabilities to validate that they're working effectively, while also assessing new opportunities to improve your security posture. Nowhere is this more valid than with privileged access management (PAM), which many IT experts consider to be a staple of both identity and access management (IAM) and access control strategies.

Despite its widespread and growing adoption, there remain many inaccurate presumptions and myths about PAM. The problem is that these misconceptions often lead to poor PAM implementations, malinvestments, and overall dissatisfaction. In this webcast, Dave Shackleford will discuss the benefits of PAM (and where it applies in a security model), as well as the top misconceptions about PAM tools and capabilities. Join Dave Shackleford where he’ll demystify:

  • Is "zero trust" something you can really achieve?
  • Is PAM only focused on privileged accounts?
  • Where do password managers fit in, if at all?

Tune in to get clear answers to these questions and more! Plus, receive the Busting the Six Myths of PAM paper from BeyondTrust to separate fact from fiction once and for all.
