Remediant Pioneers Zero Standing Privilege Approach to Privileged Access Management
by Remediant, on Dec 1, 2019
San Francisco, CA - December 2, 2019 - Remediant, Inc., a leading provider of Privileged Access Management (PAM) software, today announced that leading research and advisory firm Gartner has released a new report, “Remove Standing Privileges Through a Just-In-Time PAM Approach,” that cites Remediant.
When user and machine accounts have standing or persistent privileged access, it creates the opportunity for threat actors to move laterally inside a network, even with a password vaulting solution in place. Zero Standing Privileges (ZSP) render privileged accounts useless to unauthorized users, even if they possess the credentials. ZSP leverages a Just-in-Time Administration (JITA) approach to reduce the attack surface and stop privileged account abuse.
Remediant pioneered the JITA approach to effectively secure enterprises against administrator credential theft attacks that have caused some of the most devastating breaches to date. Remediant offers a patent-pending, JITA approach to solving credential theft attacks through the removal of standing privileges, which fundamentally reduces the attack surface for enterprises.
“Remediant was founded on the basis of implementing a simple, yet effective zero standing privilege model for our customers. We pioneered a Just-in-Time Administration approach that only provides privileged access right when you need it. This has dramatically reduced the threat landscape for our customers, especially when we uncover and manage permissions they didn’t even realize still existed,” said Remediant’s Founder and CEO, Tim Keeler. “It’s very encouraging to see the value of our Just-in-Time Administration approach. We recommend that enterprises adopt this approach for improved PAM.”

Gartner has identified PAM as the number one security project, as we believe most data breaches today involve compromised, weak and reused passwords. Gartner’s report states, “Zero standing privileges (ZSP) is the purest form of JIT, which addresses the final guidance of the principle of least privilege ‘at only the right time,’ by eliminating the risk of standing privileges…Security and risk management leaders engaged in IAM must implement a zero standing privileges strategy through a just-in-time model.”
As the first PAM solution to bring the ease of an agent-less and vault-less approach, Remediant’s SecureONE PAM software provides enterprises with control and continuous insight over the distribution, usage, and protection of privileged access in enterprise environments. Based on a Zero-trust model, SecureONE ensures privileged access is precisely allocated by granting privileged access on a Just-In-Time, Just-Enough basis using multi-factor authentication.

The company was also named a “Privileged Access Management Solution of the Year” by CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards for the second consecutive year and a “Black Unicorn” by Cyber Defense Magazine and recently announced its $15 Million Series A funding round.
