A complex dynamic of attack vectors threatens today’s IT environments like never before. Faced with this challenge, organizations need to protect their most sensitive applications and data without sacrificing business agility. Privileged Access Management (PAM) has emerged as an approach that can provide the best defense against potential attackers, by protecting all layers of the typical computing model. PAM solutions manage user access, safeguard file systems, ensure process segmentation, and provide encryption capabilities to protect users, assets, files, and applications. However, vulnerabilities can enable attackers to exploit privileged accounts, and abuse of these can open conduits for data breaches that threaten enterprise security.

As data breaches continue to make headlines, far-reaching security mandates such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) are becoming stricter, forcing organizations to rethink their cybersecurity strategy.

This webinar will examine how organizations can strategically block threats along traditional computing models to fortify security without re-engineering applications, databases or infrastructure. The presentation will focus on secure access control, auditing, alerting, and recording of privileged account activity. Management of cryptographic keys that protect access credentials, and the protection of sensitive data to ensure that only authorized users and applications can be allowed to access these files, will also be discussed.

Join the webinar and learn how to:

  • Manage all privileged user access and control file systems
  • Establish a robust root of trust for credential management
  • Enhance security with key management and encryption
  • Facilitate security auditing and regulatory compliance
  • Meet FIPS 140-2 and Common Criteria standards

This webinar is jointly presented by Thales eSecurity and BeyondTrust. Presenters are Juan Asenjo, Sr. Solutions & Partner Marketing Manager, Thales eSecurity and Martin Cannard, Sr. Product Manager, BeyondTrust.
