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.
