What is PAM?

Privileged Access Management (PAM) is a cybersecurity strategy focusing on controlling and securing accounts with elevated access in IT environments. These accounts have special permissions that, if compromised, could cause severe damage to an organization.

Why is PAM important?

Cyber attacks frequently target privileged accounts, giving attackers unrestricted access to confidential data and critical systems. The senhasegura PAM solution helps mitigate these risks by:

  • Strict access control: senhasegura PAM solution determines who has access to accounts, when, and for what purpose.
  • Monitoring and auditing: account activities are monitored and logged to detect suspicious behavior.
  • Credential protection: credentials are stored securely and encrypted.
  • Proxy access: allows monitored access to accounts via senhasegura, recording all user actions for later auditing.
  • Command control: allows specific commands to be blocked during proxy access, preventing harmful actions from being carried out.

Benefits of PAM:

  • Reduced risk of attacks: making unauthorized access to privileged accounts more difficult, reducing the risk of data breaches.
  • Improved compliance: facilitates compliance with regulations requiring the protection of confidential data.
  • Increased operational efficiency: automates the management of privileged accounts, freeing up time for administrators to focus on other tasks.

PAM components:

  • Just-in-time (JIT) access management: privileged access is granted only when necessary and for a limited period.
  • Session management: sessions are monitored and recorded for auditing.
  • Credential management: credentials are stored securely and encrypted.
