Gartner: Best Practices for Privileged Access Management Through the Four Pillars of PAM

Gartner PAM best practices

Digital transformation is having a profound impact on the fabric of IT in the modern enterprise. As organizations look to capture the value to be gained from transformative technologies like the cloud, DevSecOps, containers, and microservices, they are also adding massive complexity to their IT estate.

As this Gartner report points out, “The comprehensive discovery and management of all privileged access is a significant challenge for most organizations.” The report also states that, “Identity and access management (IAM) leaders often lack a comprehensive understanding of all PAM use cases across the enterprise, including new challenges for PAM coming from companies moving to the cloud.”
