Interoperability and Intelligence: Two Keys to a Successful Privilege Management Deployment
- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Wednesday, June 28, 2017 TIME: 4:00pm CEST, 10:00am ET, 7:00am PT
As businesses are becoming increasingly digital, their IT infrastructures are continuously growing in scale and complexity, with vast numbers of previously disparate systems and platforms woven together by new communications channels. Many of these systems are no longer located within the corporate perimeter, having partially or completely migrated to the cloud. Even those which still remain on.premises, must be constantly accessible to mobile workers, external contractors or support engineers.
The mounting pressure from both hackers with their constantly changing sophisticated attack methods and compliance regulators with their hefty fines for data breaches makes controlling and monitoring privileged access across such complex and heterogeneous corporate infrastructures increasingly complicated and unbearably expensive.
Sure, you probably have PxM solutions in place for protecting your endpoints, servers, databases, network devices or cloud services, but how well do they play together? Can you manage them all from a single console or are your administrators still struggling with a number of disconnected, incompatible security tools? A unified Privileged Access Platform could not only dramatically reduce management costs and improve productivity, but by uniting capabilities of platform-specific PxM tools with asset and account discovery and improving interoperability between disparate security products, such a solution can enable functionality that is greater than a simple sum of its individual components.
Add intelligence to the mix by incorporating functions like vulnerability management, threat analytics or application control, and you end up with a truly end-to-end Privilege Management platform that provides complete visibility into all user, asset and application risks across your whole corporate IT infrastructure.
In this KuppingerCole webinar, you’ll learn about:
- The latest trends and challenges in designing a modern Privilege Management blueprint;
- Reducing complexity and improving productivity by building PxM around a unified technology platform;
- Making PxM smarter by integrating with Identity and Access Management and cybersecurity technologies;
- Fighting the idiosyncrasies of Unix and Linux platforms to improve security and achieve compliance.
In the first part of the webinar, Matthias Reinwarth, Senior Analyst with KuppingerCole, will look at today’s big picture for a Privilege Management blueprint and how this interfaces with other areas of both IAM (Identity & Access Management) and Cybersecurity. He will provide insight into which technologies for which target systems help best in mitigating risks by internal and external attackers, supporting organizations in prioritizing their requirements and investments in Privilege Management.
In the second part, Morey Haber, VP of Technology at BeyondTrust, will provide a deeper insight into designing and deploying a unified and intelligence PxM solution, addressing real-life use cases and showing how to address the quirks of Unix and Linux systems to reduce insider risks and achieve the highest level of compliance.

Recent high-profile software supply chain attacks have highlighted the importance of security in the DevOps environment. But this can be challenging because DevOps teams are at the forefront of digital transformation and use agile techniques to deliver applications quickly, often not following traditional paths of identity management.
