How to Move from Always-on Privileged Access to Just-in-Time Administration--& Drastically Reduce Your IT Security Risk presented at FutureConDallas 2020

by Craig Maddux,

Summary : Virtually every cybersecurity breach today involves the exploitation of privileged access. Privileges are initially exploited to infiltrate an IT environment; once compromised by threat actors, privileges are further leveraged to move laterally, access assets, install malware, and inflict damage.Enterprises of all sizes have experienced a privilege explosion, driven by trends like cloud computing, DevOps, and edge computing, and the proliferation of non-human identities and accounts. As a result, privileged access is pervasive across the modern IT environment, yet it is often inadequately managed and monitored. Many organizations assume that password management will solve the privilege problem—but it’s only a partial solution.In this session, learn how the Universal Privilege Management model is used to secure every user, session, and asset across your IT environment. Covered topics include:Why relying on password management alone leaves dangerous gaps in protectionDisrupting the cyberattack chain with privileged access security controlsSteps to achieving rapid leaps in risk reductionKeys to a frictionless PAM solution that is invisible to end usersWe will also share how the BeyondTrust PAM platform enables absolute control over every privilege in your environment to drastically reduce your attack surface and windows of exposure, while boosting business productivity.
