According to Forrester, 80 percent of all hacking-related data breaches involve privileged access credentials. This illustrates that the legacy approach to Privileged Access Management is no longer enough and requires a rethinking of how to protect against privileged access abuse in today’s dynamic threatscape. Centrify is redefining the legacy approach to Privileged Access Management (PAM) by delivering cloud-ready Zero Trust Privilege to secure access to infrastructure, DevOps, cloud, containers, Big Data, and other modern enterprise use cases.
A New Approach to Privileged Access Management is Needed
As traditional network perimeters dissolve, organizations must discard the old model of “trust but verify” which relied on well-defined boundaries. Zero Trust mandates a “never trust, always verify, enforce least privilege” approach to privileged access, from inside or outside the network.
Organizations may consider approaching Privileged Access Management by solely implementing password vaults, leaving gaps that can easily be exploited. Centrify PAM combines password vaulting with privilege elevation, brokering of identities, multi-factor authentication enforcement, and “just-in-time” access and privilege, all while securing remote access and monitoring all privileged sessions.
Redefining the Legacy Approach to Privileged Access Management
Centrify is redefining the legacy approach to PAM by delivering modern, cloud-ready solutions to secure access to infrastructure, DevOps, cloud, containers, Big Data, and other modern enterprise environments.
Centrify PAM helps customers grant least privilege access based on verifying who is requesting access, the context of the request, and the risk of the access environment. By implementing least privilege access, Centrify minimizes the attack surface, improves audit and compliance visibility, and reduces risk, complexity and costs for the modern, hybrid enterprise.
Over half of the Fortune 100, the world’s largest financial institutions, intelligence agencies, and critical infrastructure companies, all trust Centrify to stop the leading cause of breaches — privileged credential abuse.
