Solving Problems in Privileged Access Management with Automation
- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Tuesday, March 03, 2020 TIME: 4:00pm CET, 10:00am EST, 7:00am PST
While businesses race ahead with digital transformation, security and identity management are often being left behind. The complexity of modern organizations of all sizes has undermined the traditional concepts of privileged access management (PAM) and privileged account usage. Help desks and IT security teams are often too busy and understaffed to be able to give PAM the attention it deserves.
However, we should not blame digital transformation for this or the desire for organizations to become more competitive. Instead we should look at ways of making PAM fit for purpose in the age of multiple privileged accounts being given to non-traditional privileged account users, as well as traditional users.
Join this KuppingerCole webinar to learn:
- Why privileged accounts are of great interest to hackers and organized crime
- How criminals find and target users of privileged accounts
- How breached privileged accounts pose a danger to the compliance posture of your company
- Why the best PAM runs in the background as much as possible allowing your IT staff to get on with their day-to-day tasks
In the first part of the webinar, KuppingerCole Senior Analyst Paul Fisher, will give a definition of PAM and explain how organized cybercrime targets privileged accounts and why it has become easier.
He will be joined by Mark Warren, Product Marketing Manager at Osirium, who believes the focus has been too much on identity rather than privileged access. Also, rather than treating PAM as a chore, combining PAM with automation and managing privileged accounts on users’ computers can have positive effects on business operations.

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.
