Cyber attacks are a constant threat, and their target is privileged users such as system administrators. Theft of administrative credentials is catastrophic, both for the organization’s business and reputation, and for the IT infrastructure, which can be irreparably compromised. Active Directory, whether based on-premises on Windows Server, or in the cloud as Azure Active Directory, is at the core of many organizations’ infrastructure, and protecting the administrative accounts in Active Directory is an absolute priority. The new features for Privileged Access Management, available with Microsoft Identity Manager for on-premises systems and in Azure Active Directory for cloud identities, provide key new capabilities for the protection of administrative identities and their permissions.
In this webinar recording from January 27, 2015, OCG CTO James Cowling introduces PAM’s main concepts and talks through its features. The webinar shows how PAM can:
- prevent attackers from gaining escalated permissions by accessing privileged accounts
- control the process of creation and authorization of administrative credentials
- allow monitoring of permissions to detect misuse
- provide a platform for the delivery of trusted processes for the management of privileged accounts.
