ARCON | Privileged Access Management (formerly Known as ARCOS) is a highly effective solution that helps in managing, controlling and monitoring privileged user activities. The solution provides IT security team with a centralized policy framework to authorize the privileges based on role and responsibilities and provide rule-based restricted access to privileged accounts.
The solution mitigates data breach threats by providing a deepest level of granular control over privileged users access to OSes, databases, applications and other critical target systems. In addition, the solution offers multi-factor authentication and robust password vaulting that ensures authorized access to target systems.
ARCON Privileged Access Management also provides comprehensive audit logs of all privileged sessions.
What are Privileged Accounts?
Privileged Accounts are super user accounts that give sysadmins, database admins, and netadmins an authorized access to critical target devices spread across the IT infrastructure. As the name suggests, these accounts are controlled by ‘Privileged’ users.
What is Privileged Access Management?
Privileged users have an elevated permission to access critical target systems. Therefore, monitoring and controlling privileged access is absolutely vital. Malefactors, typically malicious insiders, can steal or misuse highly confidential corporate information if privileged credentials are compromised.
Privileged Access Management (PAM) is a practice which enables the Security and Risk management group to carefully govern and monitor all privileged user activities. Further, it allows an organization to comply with a host of regulations such as GDPR, SOX, HIPAA, SWIFT CSCF, PCI DSS that mandates PAM.
