Organizations are increasingly facing challenges in preventing insider abuse and misuse of privileged accounts. Privileged accounts like the ones for administrators, CXOs etc. require a special level of monitoring and active control – since there is a lot of classified data at stake. In addition, there is a growing concern from external attacks that exploit system vulnerabilities to plant malware and steal user credentials. Attackers, using these compromised accounts, can escalate privileges and gain access to intellectual property, classified information, personal records, and other sensitive information. According to industry estimates, over 90% of the breaches involved compromised accounts and over 80% of all data loss was due to compromised credentials.

The privileged users, especially with access to sensitive and valuable data, can cause significant damage to the organization and disrupt the business as usual. Hence organizations are increasingly adopting PAM technologies driven by growing security concerns from insider threats, frequent security breaches exploiting privileged accounts, meeting compliance, and improving administrator’s operational efficiency. Privileged Access Management (PAM) technologies enable organizations to secure, manage, automate, and monitor privileged accounts and their access to the corporate network to protect critical assets, prevent security breaches and insider attacks, and meet compliance requirements.
