PAM (Privileged Access Management) has grown over these years to become a crucial set of technologies that addresses some urgent cybersecurity issues today.
As organizations plan their IAM strategy, PAM finds an irrevocable mention very early in the process and more often is the starting point for IAM implementations. Besides aligning PAM technologies to IAM strategy, it is important that IAM leaders seek to achieve desired business value in integrations with enterprise business systems and drive it forward.
In this webinar, we will discuss:

In the second part of the webinar, Malik Merchant, Senior CyberSecurity Specialist at IBM, will talk about the importance of choosing a PAM solution that allows you to get up and running fast with features like privileged account discovery, turnkey installation and out-of-the-box auditing and reporting tools. We’ll also cover the need to choose a solution that can scale as your company grows and which can be customized if needed to suit your individual needs.
