Privileged Access Management

Abstract: Privileged Access Management (PAM) solutions protect and track the use of sensitive or critical capabilities such as administrative or service accounts. PAM solutions provide a centralized management interface for authentication and access control throughout the network. This unification provides simplified device management as well as an improved, granular least privilege2 implementation. In some cases, access controls and management functions can be automated.
