Reduce data breach attack surface with Just-In-Time (JIT) Privileges
Watch this video to know how excessive standing privileges can be a door to IT catastrophe
Almost 75% of data breach incidents start with privileged account abuse across the world, many studies suggest. Managing, monitoring and controlling privileged activities in distributed data center environments is always a daunting task. Moreover, the remote work conditions have necessitated cyber resilience across the globe. In addition, fast adoption of advanced technologies like cloud infrastructure, virtualization, and migrating data to third-party environments have doubled the risk surface since the number of privileged accounts have escalated significantly. Organizations very often offer too much liberty to the privileged users through standing privileges that eventually leads to misuse of privileged rights. In short, the overall objective of the least privilege principle is jeopardized due to too many standing privileges
ARCON | PAM’s Just-In-Time (JIT) Privileged lays the foundation for the principle of least privilege and mitigates risks arising from standing privileges. JIT privileges allow IT administrators to grant privilege rights only on a ‘need-to-know’ and ‘need-to-do’ basis. The granted privileged rights are revoked automatically once the task is completed. It helps the administrators to keep a track of the privileged rights easily since the permit is temporary and requirement-based. It eventually offers significant reduction to the data breach threat surface for global enterprises.
