With rapid innovation comes the rapid scaling and adoption of infrastructure. To fuel this innovation, the number of privileged users (on-call developers, admins, SREs) is growing and evolving constantly. With this growth in new technologies and privileged users to support them, comes new threats.
It is, therefore, no surprise that 74% of breached organizations admitted the breach involved access to a privileged account (according to Centrify’s Threat Landscape Survey). In addition, The Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR) found that out of all attacks, 29% of total breaches involved the use of stolen credentials, second only to phishing.
While privileged access management (PAM) solutions have been in market for years, they miss a key piece of functionality that leads to the value of a PAM implementation does not get fully realized:
Legacy PAM solutions focus exclusively on authentication as the method for protecting privileged access. Over time, innovation in these legacy PAM solutions has involved longer passwords or more frequent credential rotation – but never quite addressed the real needs of practitioners who use these solutions every day. The outcome: high residual risk, high friction.
PAM solutions protect known privilege. They do not offer a way to discover and monitor privileged access across the enterprise. This results in an invisible sprawl of administrator privilege, ready to be compromised and completely unknown to an organization. Outcome: Unknown, constantly changing attack surface.
An agent-based approach that requires touching each endpoint in a network does not scale. This issue, coupled with high administrator friction results in incomplete PAM deployments. The problem is further exacerbated as workloads are dynamically provisioned and are ephemeral. Outcome: Low return on investment despite high total cost of ownership.
The extension of your PAM program that removes standing privileges and brings Zero Trust to privileged users and allows you to maximize the value of your enterprise vaults and privilege session managers
Scan continuously for hidden privileged accounts on endpoints not managed by your PAM solution today (150,000 endpoints in approximately four hours).
