Privileged Access Management (PAM)

What is PAM?

Privileged Access Management (PAM) consists of the cyber security strategies and technologies for having control over the elevated access and permissions for users, accounts, processes, and systems across an IT infrastructure. By having an appropriate level of privileged access controls, PAM helps organisations to have better visibility of access rights, condense their organisation’s attack surface, and prevent, or at least mitigate, the damage arising from external attacks as well as from insider malfeasance or negligence.

How does it work?

By centralising privileged credentials in one place, PAM systems can ensure a high level of security for them, control who has access to them, log all accesses, and monitor for any suspicious activity.

The solution allows you to give access centrally and securely to users, administrators, and third-party service providers to the following systems:

External resources
Applications or web pages
Windows or Linux systems
Network appliances
Industrial or other appliances

PAM solutions offer a secure and simplified way to authorise and monitor all privileged users on all related systems:

  • Grant privileges to users only on the systems on which they are authorised 
  • Grant access only when it is needed and revoke access when the need ends
  • Eliminate the need for privileged users to have local or direct system passwords
  • Centrally and quickly manage access through a different set of heterogeneous systems
  • Create audit trails for any privileged operation

 

NRD Cyber ​​Security specialists work with several manufacturers of PAM solutions, so they can advise on the best option for your IT infrastructure.
