REINING IN PRIVILEGE
IN YOUR ENVIRONMENT
We all know the distinction between a right and privilege, but can you accurately identify (and manage) who has the rights to access which administrator and system privileged accounts in your environment? The question is not just an important one to answer to address compliance mandates or regulatory requirements. Access to privileged accounts, such as operating system root accounts, administrator shared accounts, domain server and database systems accounts, has become one of the most prevalent vectors for data breaches and insider attacks.
Without visibility into where your privileged accounts are, who has access to them, and which systems and services they are associated with, organizations cannot effectively contain the risk that unmanaged privileged access represents.
