Trusted by leading global enterprises


A non-negotiable requisite

Compliance standards help enterprises validate and ensure their sensitive systems and data are safe from cyberthreats. Compliance with these standards strengthens an enterprise's cybersecurity and helps build trust with customers and partners. Non-compliance often results in business disruptions, governmental fines and penalties, (settlement costs, productivity losses, and more) that cost enterprises over $14 million on average.

Compliance readiness is no longer just a good-to-have luxury, it's a vital requisite. Leading analyst firms highlight that compliance-readiness is one of the primary factors fueling rapid adoption of privileged access management solutions. By adopting a comprehensive solution like ManageEngine PAM360, your enterprise will receive a PAM solution that's compliant with major industry standards out of the box, helping you address the pressing needs of regulatory compliance and audit requirements.

The top 7 ways PAM360 helps you meet compliance demands

PAM360's core features help businesses regulate access to sensitive information, maintain data integrity, and thereby comply with various regional and industry regulations. The following features are easy to setup and offer tangible compliance benefits.

  • 01

    Enforce least privilege

    Enterprises must adopt the principle of least privilege to ensure that end users have the lowest access privileges required to perform their tasks. Using PAM360's role-based access controls and just-in-time privilege elevation, you can enforce least privilege access and minimize unauthorized access across every function within your organization. Compliance standards such as GDPR (Article 32), ISO/IEC 27001: 2013 (9.4.1) [old], ISO/IEC 27001: 2022 (A 8.3) [new], and others mandate this requirement to ensure data integrity and confidentiality.

  • 02

    Fine-grained access provisioning

    Access control is essential in streamlining access provisioning. PAM360's request-release workflow helps admins grant need-based access to authorized business users for valid tasks. This limits access to mission-critical systems and data, thereby complying with specific access control requirements of standards and regulations such as HIPAA (164.312(a)(1)), ISO/IEC 27001: 2013 (A.9.2) [old], ISO/IEC 27001: 2022 (A 8.2) [new], GLBA (Section 501 b), and PCI-DSS (Requirement 7).

  • 03

    Custom password policies and password rotation

    Strict password policies enforce password hygiene across the organization. You can set up password policies that suit your organization's security policies, password reset schedules using PAM360 to stay compliant with standards such as PCI DSS (Requirement 8), and ISO/IEC 27001: 2013 (A.9.3), that require org-wide strong password security measures.

  • 04

    Remote session monitoring and termination

    Session monitoring is vital in detecting suspicious activities in real time. With PAM360's extensive privileged session management capabilities, admins can stay on the lookout for anomalous activities as and when they occur, terminate sessions remotely, record every action performed on the endpoints, and more.

    Businesses thereby stay compliant with regulations such as HIPAA 164.308(a)(5)(ii)(C), SOX (Section 802 and Section 404), NIST SP 800-53 (AC-20(3)), and PCI-DSS Requirement 10.3 that demand proper session monitoring and recording methodologies.

  • 05

    Certificate lifecycle management

    Enterprises manage a vast number of SSL/TLS certificates in their IT environment. If these certificates aren't managed properly or renewed on time, they can cause business outages and cyberthreats. PAM360 offers complete certificate lifecycle management capabilities to help users discover all their certificates, create, renew, and deploy new certificates, generate custom alerts for certificate expiry, and more. By doing so, enterprises can ensure that their critical systems are always encrypted and secure, helping them stay compliant with standards such as HIPAA (164.312(e)(1)), GDPR (Article 32 (1 a)), ISO/IEC 27001: 2013 (10.1.1), ISO/IEC 27001: 2022 (A 8.24) [new], and FedRAMP (AC-16, and AC-17).

  • 06

    Real-time audits

    Auditing is a crucial part of privileged access management. PAM360's real-time audits continuously monitor and capture all sensitive activity performed by users. Enterprises can create a new account for auditors and add them to PAM360 as Password Auditors.

    Such users receive seamless access to all privileged access audits and reports. Real-time auditing helps businesses stay compliant with SOC 2 (CC6.2:03), ISO 27001:2013 (A.12.4.3), PCI-DSS (Requirement 10.2), and other regulations.

  • 07

    Ready-made compliance reports

    PAM360's ready-made reports present an overview of all critical privileged management actions performed by users. As part of this offering, admins can generate dedicated reports for compliance standards like PCI-DSS, ISO-IEC 27001, NERC-CIP, and GDPR in a few clicks. You can find violations if any, and address them instantly.

    Apart from the above listed features, PAM360 also offers end-to-end resource and account discovery, secrets management, self-service privilege elevation, application credential management, privileged user behavior analytics, and much more that help meet various compliance needs, and improve your organization's overall security posture.
