Privileged Access Management

Protect your most valuable IT infrastructure and assets with Privileged Access Management (PAM)

What is Privileged Access Management (PAM)?

Privileged Accounts  - the servers, devices, infrastructure housing your vital assets, and managed by your system and network administrators – are increasingly the no. 1 source of security breaches. Internal and external. Intentional and unintentional.

Privileged Access Management gives you control: the right access to the right accounts by the right people at the right times. PAM from Osirium.

Common Challenges Facing IT and Security Teams

Third-parties are a major risk

Every organisation depends on working with partners and suppliers. For effective collaboration, they often need access to devices and services but, do you have full control and visibility of what they’re doing?

Like preventing them from sharing privileged credentials with others? Ensuring they have access just to the accounts they need – and no more? Deleting credentials when they leave? And if outsourcing IT, controlling what happens when your outsourcers outsource?

All of these mean a mounting potential for major security breaches.

Admin accounts are impossible to manage effectively

You may have hundreds or thousands of devices and administrator accounts with tens or hundreds of people that need access. Maintaining visibility and control rapidly becomes a real challenge.

And it leads to bad security practices. Passwords written on post-it notes. Unapproved password sharing. Predictable passwords that are easy to hack. No audit trails of account access and activity.  A security breach waiting to happen.

Too many people with too much access to too many admin accounts

You wouldn’t think it safe to give a trainee pilot the controls of a jetliner. So why do so many organisations have inexperienced admins or junior help desk staff accessing complex, business-critical privileged accounts?

Maybe there aren’t enough specialist skills in place. But giving access to staff who may be under-skilled, over-privileged and under-resourced leaves you wide open to both malicious attacks and inadvertent errors

The Osirium Solution

Separate people from passwords

If credential theft is at the centre of so many security breaches, then don’t expose credentials. With Osirium PAM, we use the model of mapping identities of people to roles on the systems and devices that need to be administered. Identity in, role out, with access granted to just the accounts they’re authorised for, and no credentials revealed.

Rich audit and session management

Who, what, when, where. Osirium PAM delivers comprehensive audit trails and session recording, allowing for training and incident investigation as well as demonstrating rigorous compliance.

Automate privileged tasks

Privileged Access Management is not just about protecting login credentials. With Osirium it's also about automating tasks that normally need an administrator. By automating both routine tasks (‘Start server’, Stop server’, Refresh password’) and complex IT processes, Osirium cuts back manual effort, cost and risk, frees up valuable resources, and reduces the overall attack surface.

The IAM leaders guide to PAM

Protecting shared IT resources such as applications, databases, firewalls, and network devices requires more than proving identity. This free report by Gartner shows the value of PAM in securing your business and driving operational efficiencies.

Identity management is a good start but it’s not the complete solution. Protecting valuable shared IT resources such as applications, databases, firewalls, network devices and much more is critical and needs more than only proving the identity of the users. This report by Gartner shows the value of PAM in securing your business and driving operational efficiencies.
