Privileged Access Management Guidance from the Experts

Gartner considers privileged access management (PAM) a top security control. Simultaneously, spending on PAM continues to increase year over year.

According to Gartner’s Buyers’ Guide for Privileged Access Management, “Most high-profile breaches are enabled through excessive privileges, a failure of privileged access management.” In addition to vastly reducing the attack surface and mitigating cyber risk, Gartner also underscores that PAM is a pivotal control to “enable the business to run faster by streamlining the assignment and delegation of the minimum privileged access.”

PAM is a foundational security discipline with use cases that continue to expand to address the accelerating demands of digital transformation.
