Overview

ARCON | Privileged Access Management (formerly Known as ARCOS) is a highly effective solution that helps in managing, controlling and monitoring privileged user activities. The solution provides IT security team with a centralized policy framework to authorize the privileges based on role and responsibilities and provide rule-based restricted access to privileged accounts.

What is Privileged Access Management?

Privileged Access Management (PAM) is a practice of managing, monitoring and controlling activities of privileged users. Privileged users are super admins who have elevated permission to access critical information.

Why Privilege accounts are vulnerable?

Privileged accounts are the gateway to confidential information. Hence, these accounts are vulnerable to breaches. These accounts are spread across the enterprise touching every aspect of IT infrastructures like operating systems, databases, applications, and network devices. Hence, malicious insiders are always on a lookout to target these accounts for gaining access to the confidential information.

What are the Challenges?

In a typical use case scenario, malicious insiders and compromised third party elements can take advantage when organizations pay scant attention to the rising number of privileged users in an enterprise IT environment.

Unaccounted surge in the number of endpoints and privileged accounts, consequently, provides potential ways to the compromised insiders and malicious third parties to gain access to enterprise networks and critical systems.

Our Services

Authorization

ARCON PAM provides a unified policy engine to offer a rule and role-based restricted privileged access to target systems. Authorization ensures implementation of access control framework around people and policies. This way, the privileged access is granted only on “need-to-know” and “need-to-do” basis, the foundation for a robust identity and access control management.

One Admin Control

N number of privileged users, N number of devices. No matter how big is your enterprise’s IT infrastructure, each and every access to critical systems is made through one ADMIN console. The secured gateway server provides centralized control point through which all network connections and traffic is routed for management and monitoring. ARCON PAM provides a unified policy engine to offer a rule and role-based restricted privileged access to target systems. Authorization ensures implementation of access control framework around people and policies. This way, the privileged access is granted only on “need-to-know” and “need-to-do” basis, the foundation for a robust identity and access control management.

Virtual Grouping

As organizations scramble to comply with cost cutting IT initiatives and shared IT management, it becomes imperative to align data center teams according to business hierarchies and business locations to ensure efficient Privileged Access Management. ARCON Privileged Access Management segregates your privileged users according to role, server, team, department and functionality wise.

Fine-Grained Access Control

Fine-grained access control / granular user control allows to restrict and control privileged users through a rule and role based centralized policy. The functionality provides the IT risk managers command restricting and filtering capabilities for ensuring secure, authorized and controlled access to target systems.The solution minimizes the risk surface by providing deepest levels of granular control over data controllers and data processors.

Multi-factor Authentication

Privileged account access requires a well established identity references (validation) for users accessing critical IT components. Multi-factor authentication (MFA) provides a robust validation mechanism. The solution’s MFA functionality acts a strategic entry point to identity management systems and helps managing system based users. ARCON offers native software based One-Time-Password (OTP) validation to begin a privileged session and the tool seamlessly integrates with disparate third-party biometric authentication solutions such as Gemalto, RSA, Vasco, 3M, Precision, SafeNet and Safran.

Password Vaulting

ARCON Password Vault is a robust engine that allows the enterprise IT security team to frequently randomize and change passwords. The electronic vault, which stores privileged passwords in a highly secure manner uses AES-256 bit encryption. It is further wrapped with a proprietary encryption algorithm. The electronic vault has release request workflow including secured printing to support emergency password retrieval in breakglass scenarios.

Workflow

No more tedious and long approval process. Workflow matrix makes administrators life easy. It enables to configure the approval process for privileged users, user-groups and service groups. Service and password request workflow mechanism speeds-up the process of assigning target servers to privileged users.

Session Monitoring

Session monitoring enables IT security team to spot any suspicious activity around privileged account. Live Dashboard ensures that that all critical activities performed by administrators across the IT infrastructure is viewed in real-time.

Text and Video Logs

ARCON PAM proactively secures all databases and applications as every command/query executed by end users are captured for a security assessment. This way, the Security and Risk Assessment team seamlessly manages the lifecycle of privileged account as every activity performed by privileged users is captured in both video and text format.

Single- Sign- On (SSO)

Shared privileged accounts often results in security vulnerability. Malicious actors can target confidential information by abusing shared privileged identities and passwords. Single- Sign-On provides administrative one-time access to target systems. The tool enables to avoid sharing of all important privileged credentials to non-administrative users. Thus, SSO prevents possible abuse of privileged accounts whilst help implementing the principle of least privilege.
