Identity and access management (IAM) is a critical part of any organizations security, as it is linked to the protection of information assets in the organization.
Compromised user credentials often serve as an entry point into an organization’s network and its information assets. Organizations use identity management to safeguard their information assets against the rising cyber security threats.
It is very common that users have more access privileges than necessary. A robust IAM system can add an important layer of protection by ensuring a consistent application of user access rules and policies across an organization.
As an extension to IAM, Privileged Access Management (PAM) is an important aspect of managing accounts with the highest privileges. Cyber criminals will always aim to gain access to high privilege accounts to enable access to critical systems. Organizations need to consider a PAM strategy in order to reduce risk of more severe security incidents.
