Privileged accounts, credentials and secrets provide an unobstructed pathway to an organization’s high-value digital assets. Nearly all of the most destructive cyber attacks this decade were executed by successfully exploiting privileged access.
Privileged access exists in many forms (i.e. Local Administrative Accounts, Domain Administrative Accounts, Service Accounts, Application Credentials, SSH Keys) across the enterprise environment. Privileged accounts, credentials and secrets are found in devices, applications and operating systems. They allow organizations to secure the infrastructure and applications, run business efficiently and maintain the confidentiality of sensitive data.
In the wrong hands, privileged credentials can be used to cause catastrophic damage to a business. This is why they must be protected, managed and monitored.
