With the explosion of virtualized and cloud environments, the attack surface and number of identities that can be compromised have increased exponentially. As a result, targeted data breaches and insider threats are on the rise. The common theme for many of these attacks is privileged accounts because they hold the “keys to the kingdom”.
Symantec Privileged Access Management (formerly CA Privileged Access Management) is designed to prevent security breaches by:
· Providing granular authorization of users to systems and accounts
· Constantly monitoring privileged activity to assess for risk, triggering automated mitigations when higher risk is detected
· Auditing and recording attempts to access
· Vaulting and rotating the privileged account’s credentials including passwords or key/token-based authentication.
