Protect your business and empower your people.

With the explosion of virtualized and cloud environments, the attack surface and number of identities that can be compromised have increased exponentially. As a result, targeted data breaches and insider threats are on the rise. The common theme for many of these attacks is privileged accounts because they hold the “keys to the kingdom.”

Layer7 Privileged Access Management (formerly CA Privileged Access Management) is designed to prevent security breaches by providing granular authorization of users to systems and accounts, constantly monitoring privileged activity to assess for risk, triggering automated mitigations when higher risk is detected, auditing and recording attempts to access as well as vaulting and rotating the privileged account’s credentials including passwords or key/token-based authentication.

CA Point of View on Privileged Access Management [0:42]

What is privileged access management?

Privileged access management is the creation and enforcement of controls over users, systems and accounts that have elevated or “privileged” entitlements—examples: admin or root accounts, application accounts. While the creation of these accounts is often governed by companies, the use of these accounts is far too often shared across multiple individuals within the company. These are commonly referred to as shared accounts.

Many public breaches are due to the compromising of privileged accounts. External hackers and insider threats seek out and exploit shared or privileged accounts because of the entitlements they hold as “keys to the kingdom.”
