Privileged Access Management (PAM)

Thursday, May 11, 2023 14:30—18:30
Location: B 07-08

Privileged Access Management PAM (Privileged Access Management) is one of the established core disciplines within IAM. Yet, PAM also is the IAM discipline that is changing most radically.

On one hand, there is the impact of Cloud Infrastructure Entitlement Management (CIEM) as cloud takes hold. Then there is the expansion of PAM beyond humans accessing PCs and networks for routine tasks towards any type of human and non-human identity accessing any type of workload, data or application.

PAM is changing, with more parties involved – a “PAMocracy”, as KuppingerCole Analyst Paul Fisher recently named it.

In this track we look at the latest developments in PAM, how the market is evolving and how you can become a better keeper of privileged assets. It will focus on areas such as the continuing value of rotating credentials within PAM platforms and how PAM can be elevated to take better care of data through improved use of traditional privileged accounts and their credentials.

But any form of PAM investment needs CISO or board approval so we will look at how to better business case with actual ROI for any proposed deployment. In uncertain time this makes sense.

The combined impact of the pandemic driven shift to remote work with a connect-anywhere paradigm and the ongoing digital business transformation has inspired a higher awareness of cybersecurity concerns, requiring a profound change in the way we define Access Management. One way to do that perhaps is to view Privilege Access as service to employees which is what has happened at the German DKB bank and deploy accordingly. The guys at DKB call it a Privileged Access Security Service.

Paul Fisher will give an overview of the market for Privilege Access Management (PAM) platforms and provide a compass to help buyers find the product that best meets their needs. KuppingerCole examines the market segment, vendor capabilities, relative market share, and innovative approaches to providing PAM solutions. He will also explain how the new Pamocracy is affecting the market.

Altogether, it makes for fascinating and lively set of sessions on this key topic.
