Securing access to privileged accounts
Privileged accounts, which are used for the administration of applications, devices, and more, pose a greater security risk than the standard end user accountdue to their greater level of authority. While admin accounts are necessary, the sensitive and protected information that they are able to access makes them a high value target for malicious actors. With a privileged access management (PAM) solution in place, organisations can secure their privileged accounts.
Imprivata Privileged Access Management, a key component of the Imprivata digital identity framework, is a comprehensive, easy-to-use privileged access management solution that helps customers improve security by protecting privileged accounts from unauthorised access.
With Imprivata Privileged Access Management, organisations can:
- Minimise the risk of data breaches associated with compromised privileged credentials
- Meet regulatory compliance requirements, such as NHS Data Security Protection Toolkit GDPR, PCI, NIST, The Network and Information Systems Regulations 2018, and more
- Improve security by reducing the risk of compromised credentials for shared accounts
- Adhere to the principle of least privilege by providing just enough access to complete a task, and nothing more
