Saunderson House is an independent wealth management firm that for over fifty years has been providing a comprehensive financial planning and investment management service to high-net worth individuals, charities and trusts. Security at Saunderson House has always been considered an absolute priority. One of several regular audits highlighted the need to review management and access to privileged accounts as part of a long term strategy to ensure continuing security for the company and its customers.
The Infrastructure Team had already implemented a system of managing elevated accounts, but could see that over time, with the business growing, they would need a comprehensive Privileged Access Management solution. With an expanding infrastructure comprising well over 100 servers distributed across 2 data centres, they identified the need for rigorous control of privileged credentials, detailed audit trails of access activity, and an intuitive model for securely managing different levels of specialist skills across a growing team.
