Privileged credentials have always been a hot target for both external hackers and malicious insiders to gain unfettered access to critical systems and steal sensitive data. For this reason, the emphasis on securing and managing privileged access has grown over the past few years, and privileged access management (PAM) has been flagged by research analysts as one of the top IT security projects that enterprises have to pursue.
The current pandemic and remote work situation has brought about a massive shift of network boundaries exacerbating the problem of privileged credential sprawl. Moreover, migration to cloud infrastructures and the adoption of agile platforms like DevOps, IoT, and robotic process automation (RPA) has resulted in more complex IT ecosystems, pushing cybersecurity professionals to rethink privileged access security.
With security approaches like Zero Trust and the principle of least privilege (PoLP) gaining traction in the recent times, capabilities like just-in-time privileged access, risk-based session monitoring, and behavior analytics powered by AI and ML are being increasingly adopted by enterprises. Building a PAM system that is capable of integrating with diverse platforms and being interwoven with the overall IT ecosystem is what organizations need.
