What is Privileged Access Management (PAM)?


Every organization has a set of privileged accounts that grant elevated access (aka “superuser access”) to critical systems for administrative and maintenance purposes. These privileged accounts are often referred to as the “keys to the kingdom”. If you don’t properly secure and monitor the keys to your kingdom, then cyber attackers can get unlimited access to all your information systems. That’s where privileged access management (PAM) comes in.

Features of Privileged Access Management Solutions


Access Control

Grant, manage, and revoke temporary privileged account access for employees, contractors, and/or vendors — implementing the principle of least privilege (PoLP). Set access conditions based on time, location, etc.

Session Monitoring

Monitor privileged account use in real-time and revoke access at the slightest hint of suspicious behavior. Text logs and video recordings of the session also provide a bulletproof audit trail for reporting and compliance purposes.

Password Security

Implement an enterprise password vault to protect your privileged account credentials. The vault injects passwords directly into applications — so that passwords are never exposed — and rotates them according to your policies.

Automated Threat Discovery


Identify orphaned accounts, over-extension of privileged access, and problematic behavior before they escalate to more serious threats.

Privileged access management (PAM) products leverage advanced artificial intelligence (AI) and predictive analytics techniques to automate these processes, so that you get security and peace of mind.
