Because privileged users have so much power, most organizations have some basic controls in place to limit or audit their activity. But are you doing everything you should? Here is a guide of best practices you can follow to take control over privilege users across your IT environment.
Before public cloud services, large-scale computing infrastructure was expensive, hosted on-premises, and reserved for big enterprises, governments, and universities. Now, anyone with a credit card can access an unlimited supply of cloud apps and computing power. While cloud computing offers many benefits, its accessibility has also made identity attacks targeting passwords much more popular.
Infrastructure resources are some of the most sensitive and valuable assets across your network. Whether in the cloud or on-prem, controlling access to servers and databases is a top priority for IT and Security departments. While traditional methods are laser-focused on “protecting the keys”, admin credential breaches continue to slam organizations.
According to Forrester1, 80 percent of all hacking-related data breaches involve privileged access credentials. This illustrates that the legacy approach to Privileged Access Management (PAM) is no longer enough and requires a rethinking of how to protect against privileged access abuse in today’s dynamic threatscape. Centrify is redefining legacy-PAM by delivering cloud-ready Zero Trust Privilege to secure access to infrastructure, DevOps, cloud, containers, Big Data, and other modern enterprise attack surfaces.
High profile breaches continue to make headlines weekly. Many of these breaches involve the use of compromised privileged credentials. Only a small percentage of cyber security professionals believe that user name and password-based security remains an adequate form of protection.
