The Ultimate Guide to Privileged Access Management
Also known as PAM.
Determining who or what can access organisational digital assets is a fundamental component of information security. Privileged Access Management is the process by which the identities of individuals (or in some cases, applications – where programmes are interacting) are carefully managed, with differing permissions according to role. In its simplest form, this means more higher-level (privileged) users will enjoy greater access to sensitive resources; less privileged accounts have reduced access. This enhances access management and protects sensitive information or assets from compromise.
