Challenges for Managed Service Providers Offering Privileged Account Management as a Service
- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Tuesday, July 02, 2019 TIME: 4:00pm CEST, 10:00am EDT, 7:00am PDT
Insufficiently protected privileged accounts pose high risks to any given company today. Therefore, Privileged Account Management (PAM) is of paramount importance to a functional insider threat program, which is at the core of any modern cybersecurity strategy. While utilizing a variety of IaaS, PaaS and SaaS offerings, organizations often face difficulties in controlling the management of their privileged accounts due to a lack of time, budget and other resources.
For these companies PAM as a Service (PAMaaS) can be the solution. Managed Service Providers (MSP) can take care of PAM centrally, but at the same time they must not be able to access passwords and must obtain the approval from their clients.
This webinar will focus on:
- The risks posed by insufficient Privileged Account Management
- How PAM can be turned into a service by Managed Service Providers
- Things to be considered by companies looking for PAMaaS
- Things to be considered by MSPs offering PAMaaS
In the first part, Martin Kuppinger, Principal Analyst at KuppingerCole, will explain the importance of PAM for all types of environments, with specific emphasis on the ones involving MSPs, and the risks that come with inadequately managed privileged accounts.
In the second part, Martin will be joined by two speakers: Kai Buedel, Solution Architect at Prianto will introduce ARCON, an ISV specialized on PAM software and will explain the feature set and solution design for PAM as a service. Kai will cover both perspectives, Managed Service Provider and customer. In the last part Martin Scherrer, VP Business Development at ARCON will jump in to answer questions from the audience.

As users, devices and application workloads move outside the corporate network, the traditional model of enforcing security at the network perimeter is no longer effective. A Zero Trust model offers an alternative that secures data while ensuring it is accessible to employees, regardless of where they are working. But the path to achieving Zero Trust is unclear for many organizations.
