Enterprise Password Management refers to the practice and techniques of securely controlling credentials for privileged accounts, services, systems, applications, and more. Also known as Privileged Password Management, these solutions reduce risk by identifying, securely storing, and centrally managing every elevated access credential.
Enterprise Password Management is essential for a simple reason.
Credentials are often stored insecurely or in plain text, such as on sticky notes or in shared spreadsheets. Even once secure passwords can be forgotten, non-compliant, repeated, or simply shared with the wrong person, increasing the risk of a data breach.
Enterprise password managers reduce the risks associated with privileged credential compromise by safeguarding access to privileged account passwords and SSH Keys. This provides full control over system and application access through live session management. Admins are able to record, lock, and document suspicious behavior with the ability to lock or terminate sessions.
