CENTRIFY ZERO TRUST PRIVILEGE MEANS LIMITING PRIVILEGED ACCESS ABUSE FOR THE EXPANDED THREATSCAPE
Legacy Privileged Access Management (PAM) has been around for decades and was designed back in the day when ALL of your privileged access was constrained to systems and resources INSIDE your network. However, today’s environment is different, privileged access not only covers infrastructure, databases and network devices but is extended to cloud environments, it includes big data projects, it must be automated for DevOps, and it now needs to cover hundreds of containers or microservices to represent what used to be a single server. Centrify Zero Trust Privilege solutions account for the ever-expanding attack surface.
To mitigate risks and increase security when rolling out your Big Data environments, you need to control access, manage privilege, audit activity and associate everything back to an individual.
To increase security and mitigate risks when extending your on-premises environment to the cloud, you need to control access, enforce MFA, manage privilege and audit activity with a solution built for the modern enterprise.
To minimize the risk when leveraging containers, you need to centrally manage privileged user access rights, implement MFA and temporary privilege escalation to gain access to individual containers, and enable granular privilege management at the container platform and container operating system layers across your development environment.
To reduce the risk of hackers exfiltrating data from databases, you need to instill privileged access management, adaptive multi-factor authentication (MFA), session recording and monitoring, as well as auditing and reporting.
The introduction of microservices, container-based architectures, and DevOps practices have led to a revolution in software development. However, as companies adopt these new technologies, tools and methodologies, they must mitigate the risk associated with it.
Servers have traditionally been the primary attack point for bad actors. Securing the access to this infrastructure is essential in strengthening your security posture. To minimize the risk of falling victim to identity-based attacks, organizations need to take a layered approach.
To reduce the risk of hackers using network devices as attack vector, you need to instill privileged access management and adaptive multi-factor authentication (MFA).
