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