Security reports routinely highlight credential misuse as the number one cause of breaches. However, zeroing in closer on the kill chain steps, we will almost always find a privileged access and/or credential management failure that paved the way for the breach.
Therein lies an opportunity for businesses to bolster layered defense through privileged account management (PAM). Once a challenging program to undertake, today’s leading solutions make PAM considerably easier and achievable. While PAM solutions have lagged in their move to the cloud—that is now changing, with PAM-deployed solutions increasingly reaching feature-parity with on-premise solutions.
In this on-demand webinar, cybersecurity strategist Dan Blum will discuss cloud PAM capabilities such as:
- SaaS deployment
- Just-in-time (JIT) access
- Privileged task automation
- Service account management
