Privileged Account Management (PAM) implementation can be your strongest defense against a potential data breach.
80% of data breaches from hacking involve brute force or stolen credentials
— 2020 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report
Weak and poorly managed credentials can provide threat actors an easy path into critical systems and valuable data, more so if those credentials belong to privileged accounts. That’s why privileged account security is always emphasized in data protection/privacy frameworks and legislations like GDPR, HIPAA, and PCI DSS.
Securing all privileged accounts in your organization, which includes both human (e.g. local admins, domain admins, and third party accounts) and non-human (i.e. those used by applications, services, systems, IoT devices, APIs, and DevOps pipelines) entities, can’t be done effectively with ordinary tools and manual methods.
To ensure optimal protection, you’ll need a PAM solution like Senhasegura that, at a minimum, includes capabilities for discovering, managing, monitoring, and, ultimately, securing credentials across your company’s entire infrastructure.
