Centrify Zero Trust Privilege Means Taking a Stand Against Privileged Access Abuse
Today’s threatscape requires granting least privilege access based on verifying who is requesting access, the context of the request, and the risk of the access environment. Leverage Centrify Zero Trust Privilege solutions to gain the proper capabilities to address today’s main cause of data breaches – privileged access abuse — while minimizing your attack surface, improving audit and compliance visibility, and reducing risk, complexity and costs for your modern, hybrid enterprise.
Organizations face a multitude of government and industry regulations that require them to lock down their privileged access at the highest assurance level and continuously be able to report who has access to what.
Privileged access management (PAM) is one of the most critical security controls, particularly in today’s complex IT environment. Security, risk, and IT practitioners must use PAM tools in a long-term strategy for comprehensive risk mitigation.
Today, identities include not just people but workloads, services, and machines. Properly verifying who has privileged access means leveraging enterprise directory identities, eliminating local accounts and decreasing the overall number of accounts and passwords, reducing the attack surface.
Privileged accounts are protected by vaulting their credentials. Access to those accounts is then brokered for human users, services and applications. Privileged session management functions establish sessions with possible credential injection and full session recording. Passwords and other credentials for privileged accounts are actively managed too.
In today’s dynamic threat landscape, it is essential to manage privilege without sharing passwords. The objective is to grant just enough privilege based on roles within an organization and elevate the assigned privilege if needed via workflow requests.
Whether they're employees, outsourced IT, vendors or managed service providers — granting remote administrators privileged access to your infrastructure introduces risk. Thus, it is important to provide them with secure, granular access to infrastructure regardless of location and without the hassles and inherent risks of a VPN.
