Effective session management for privileged users
Managing and monitoring privileged access to Enterprise Systems has turned out to be one of the most important aspects of IT security for almost any type of organization.
Full insight into the administration and maintenance of critical systems is essential for proving compliance to regulatory requirements, but also for protecting an organization’s core business.
It is essential to prevent illegitimate access from outside cyber attackers and from insiders. And it is essential to have the right administrators have access to the right systems at the right time.
Well-defined processes for day-to-day access to any type of critical system include justified access requests, approval processes by system owners and/or line management and secure management of system access, including management of user ids, passwords or SSH keys
But appropriate measures for privileged user management have to go beyond that: Every administrative user session bears the risks of accidental errors, but also of intentional fraud, espionage or sabotage, leading to disruption of service, damage to the organization’s reputation, data leakage or loss of money or assets.
This webinar gives an overview of privileged session management, including
- Administrator credentials management
- Privileged system access request and approval
- Surveillance and live monitoring of administrative sessions
- Different types of session recording
- Rule-based real-time analytics of administrative sessions
- Archiving of administrative sessions for audit and analysis purposes
In the first part of this webinar Matthias Reinwarth, Senior Analyst at KuppingerCole, will talk about requirements and benefits of privileged session management in the legal and regulatory contexts, and beyond.
In the second part Chris Pace, Head of Product Marketing at WALLIX will provide a deeper insight into today’s approaches for privileged session management based on practical experiences, focusing on solutions for large customer environments and multi-tenant cloud service providers.

The majority of security breaches and attacks can be traced back to stolen and compromised passwords. Mobile devices are often particularly vulnerable because many users tend to avoid long passwords and special characters.
Blockchain is still on everyone’s lips and the 2019 can be the year when large enterprises finally embrace the distributed ledger technology. KuppingerCole's inaugural blockchain-themed event will go beyond the hype and will present you real use cases and applications for your enterprise.
