Undiscovered, always changing privileges
Today, there is no automated way for organizations to discover and inventory all the privileged access across the enterprise. Current solutions protect known privilege. They do not offer a way to discover and monitor privileged access across the enterprise, resulting in an invisible sprawl of 24x7x365 administrator privilege across an enterprise.
Unnecessary standing access = Larger attack surface:
Standing privileged user access without business justification allows attackers to move laterally and spread across a network. Today, there is no automated way to remove that standing access across platforms. In addition, there is no automated way to provision the appropriate access directly to user accounts just for the time needed.
High friction user experience for administrators:
Administrators managed through a password vault have to checkout a generic or shared ID and get approval every time there is an incident. This approach slows down their ability to respond quickly, thereby increasing Mean Time To Respond (MTTR) and impacting uptime.
Incomplete, inaccurate view of risk posture:
The state of privileged account risk across the enterprise is a key indicator of an organization’s overall risk posture. Today, there is no way to comprehensively report on this risk across an enterprise. In addition, there is no way to report on how the risk posture has evolved over time.
