Struggling to Improve your Compliance Posture?

Industry bodies and government regulators have acknowledged that today’s number #1 cause of breaches is tied to privileged access abuse. Privileged credentials represent the keys to the kingdom, allowing for a “free ride” throughout the entire infrastructure when stolen. It takes just one compromised privileged credential to impact millions. This could be millions in recovery costs, millions of stolen identities, millions in ransomware payouts, millions in audit-related fines, or millions in share price fall. In response, internal auditors, regulations, and industry mandates set specific guidelines and reporting requirements to govern the use of such powerful credentials.

For mid-sized organizations, who must also comply with government regulations and industry mandates, their requirements create unique challenges for the collection, aggregation, and attestation of privileged access data.

Organizations generally lack continuous visibility into their compliance posture, leading to audits and certifications that are a sprint during which the workload for internal auditors and compliance staff skyrockets. The result is often a “sampling” approach, whereby organizations only evaluate a subset of controls, leaving many security and compliance blind spots.

Ultimately, hunting down answers from various stakeholders and reconciling diverse data sets takes a toll on audit processes’ efficiency and the accuracy of audit findings.

Let Centrify Help

Centrify has you covered when it comes to assuring continuous visibility into your compliance posture. Leveraging Centrify PAM solutions helps customers improve accountability, conduct forensic investigations, and prove compliance with government regulations and industry mandates.

With Centrify you can:

Demonstrate Compliance

Provide proof of compliance by showing that security controls are in place and working as designed. Compliance reports for SOX, PCI, HIPAA, and other regulations provide information on who has access to what and who approved that access, and can be reconciled with actual access reports to prove privileged access security controls are working as designed.

Establish Individual Accountability

Get users to login as themselves wherever possible, and validate their identity with MFA when they elevate privilege. Log events and visually record high-risk privileged activity, tying everything back to an individual for full accountability. Establish a single source of truth for individual and shared accounts — leveraging a common toolset regardless of account type.

Enforce Privileged Access Controls

Enforce PAM security controls to satisfy regulatory compliance to SOX, HIPAA, FISMA, NIST, PCI, MAS, FISMA, NIST. Centrify PAM is a comprehensive solution that combines password vaulting with brokering of identities, MFA enforcement, just-in-time and just enough privilege, while securing remote access and monitoring all privileged sessions.

Quickly Identify and Investigate Security Incidents

Centrify’s auditing service collects privileged access events from across your infrastructure and gives you a centralized place for incident alerting, activity monitoring, and forensic investigation. Proactively identifying insider threats or suspicious activity and speeding time to response improves compliance posture.

There isn’t a regulation that Centrify hasn’t helped us to meet. Today, every time an administrator touches a server, I have a record of it. I can pull a report, print it, and hand it to the auditor.
