Removing Standing Privileges Through a Just-in-Time Approach

For the past two years, Gartner has ranked Privileged Access Management (PAM) as the number one security project and most data breaches today are due to compromised, weak and reused passwords.

Gartner’s report states, “To properly mitigate the risk of standing privileged access, security and risk management (SRM) leaders responsible for IAM should closely follow the vision of the principle of least privilege and drastically reduce, with a goal toward eliminating, standing (i.e., “always-on”) privileged access by using just-in-time (JIT) approaches. This will ensure that privileges are only granted when a valid reason for them exists, with zero standing privileges (ZSP) as the goal.”

Read more about Gartner’s point of view on the biggest residual security risk (standing privilege) and the next evolution of PAM that addresses the risk (ZSP).
