Reinforce Least Privilege by Rethinking Identity Management

January 13, 2023

The definition of privilege is changing, and this changes everything.

Identities of all types — not just IT team members, but any employees — are gaining access to sensitive data, infrastructure and systems that today’s attackers can easily exploit.

Key to enforcing least privilege is Identity Management, which entails granting, adjusting and revoking authorizations, as well as complying with audits. But it’s not easy.

Working with CIOs, CISOs and security decision-makers across thousands of enterprises, we know you’re under pressure to manage and protect identities at a time when:

  • Many enterprises are bogged down with time-consuming manual processes, outdated technologies and silos across apps, directory stores and data repositories.
  • As risks increase, so do workloads, hours and stress levels. Meanwhile, economic pressures exacerbate ongoing resource and skills gaps.

To truly enforce least privilege, IT and security teams need controls that cover all types of identities with powerful access. This requires rethinking what Identity Management is — and needs to be. In this piece, we’ll discuss steps you can take to bolster your team’s approach in three areas:

  1. Automating and orchestrating access privileges across the full identity lifecycle
  2. Establishing organization-wide compliance controls and reporting
  3. Extending the controls you use for securing privileged users to all identities
