For instance, noncompliance to the ‘Least Privilege’ principle due to the absence of Just-in-time (JIT) privilege elevation approach. Scenario 1: Enterprise on-prem privileged access management includes robust vaulting and session monitoring, but privileged users have ‘Always-on’ entitlements.

Protecting Passwords: The key to securely lock enterprise digital assets

A few months back, Facebook, the social media giant, acquired the headlines of cyber security news due to poor password management. Millions of users’ private credentials were stored in plain text format which was revealed by a reporter in a security blog.

Our IT ecosystem, subsequently, gets structured in multiple layers of devices and applications—both on premises and cloud, ultimately resulting in a number of administrative accounts or privileged accounts – super-user credentials holding access keys [...]
