Privileged access management

Securing access to privileged accounts


Privileged accounts, which are used for the administration of applications, devices, and more, pose a greater security risk than the standard end user account due to their greater level of authority. While admin accounts are necessary, the sensitive and protected information that they are able to access makes them a high value target for malicious actors. With a privileged access management (PAM) solution in place, organisations can secure their privileged accounts.

Imprivata Privileged Access Management, a key component of the Imprivata digital identity framework, is a comprehensive, easy-to-use privileged access management solution that helps customers improve security by protecting privileged accounts from unauthorised access.

With Imprivata Privileged Access Management, organisations can:

  • Minimise the risk of data breaches associated with compromised privileged credentials
  • Meet regulatory compliance requirements, such as GDPR, EU NIS/NIS2 Directive, Saudi Arabian Essential Cybersecurity Controls, UAE National Cyber Security Standards, PCI, NIST, Australian Cyber Security Strategy, and more
  • Improve security by reducing the risk of compromised credentials for shared accounts
  • Adhere to the principle of least privilege by providing just enough access to complete a task, and nothing more
