Selecting the Right Solution
Privileged Access Management solutions from CA are one of the critical technologies that businesses are implementing to combat insider threat and targeted breaches. The journey for most organizations often starts with privileged password vaulting and issuing these credentials through a checkout process. This gives organizations the ability to control who has access to these accounts and auditors the visibility into who is actually using these accounts and what they are doing.
However, this is not the end state. By necessity, digital transformation changes, accelerates and automates how code, machines and human identities interact. Risk and security concerns become more amplified because these initiatives inevitably result in more points of access that are outside of existing controls and that are accessible by a greater number and more diverse set of identities than before.
The enterprise’s cybersecurity and insider threat strategy needs to evolve with the changing times. Determining which identities should have access to specific services and resources, managing their credentials to the resources and ensuring that the access is appropriate with minimal manual intervention and based on policy is a central challenge to enabling automation, scale and speed. For privileged access management to serve as a key enabler for digital transformation and not be a choke point, the technology and tools need to deliver a consolidated and extensible solution to the risks created by the transformation journey.
