Protect Privileged Access Management with Adaptive Authentication
Would you spend several hours in the sun without sunscreen? No, and neither would I! Then why would you leave your privileged account passwords unprotected? Several enterprises are using Privileged Access Management systems in their infrastructure today, with privileged accounts representing the gateway to an organization’s most valuable assets. That’s why cyberattackers covet them. It’s also why nearly all serious security breaches involve privileged accounts that attackers acquire and compromise, then exploit privileged credentials.
Privileged Account Management systems periodically change managed passwords to a new, random value. Since users and automated software processes need these passwords to function, these systems must also store passwords and provide various mechanisms to disclose these passwords in a secure and appropriate manner. SecureAuth’s adaptive access control solution can act as an extra layer of protection for the keys to your datacenter kingdom.
SecureAuth uses a layered approach, with pre-authentication risk analysis to validate the end-user attempting to access the Privileged Account Security system. Pre-authentication risk analysis (also called adaptive authentication) looks at multiple risk factors to determine the legitimacy of each user identity. If — and only if — sufficient risks are present, SecureAuth requires multi-factor authentication. SecureAuth offers the most comprehensive range of risk checks available, including the IP address, device recognition, geo-location, geo-velocity, directory lookup, and behavioral biometrics.
