Based on our extensive experience we’ve identified the ways our most successful customers have started out. We distilled this into a set of best practices to help guide your Privileged Identity Management journey.
The crux of public / private key credentials is that the server has the public key and the client brings the private key to demonstrate that it is the legitimate privileged identity.
Here’s the situation. This is a garden variety cyber attack. In fact, many companies are victims of these types of attacks and choose to pay off the attackers.
Technology can be like old clothes. There’s a level of comfort in holding onto software you’ve been using for years. But, there’s also discomfort when you outgrow its usefulness.
The idea is that when an incident occurs it triggers an automated credentials rotation in real-time to shut the bad guys down.
The survey queried respondents about changing default passwords on IoT devices. More than half admitted they do not have a process to change these passwords.
Without any privileged password management controls, most long-term enterprise employees collect credentials like a janitor collects keys.
The cloud is just the same technologies from an on-premises environment running somewhere else. Any risks that you had on-premises are still there in the cloud.
What if organizations could react to cyber attacks with an automated defense? If they could take control of their privileged accounts it would reduce the attacker’s surface for compromise.
The goal of any security program is to stop or mitigate a threat. To resolve the administrative credentials security threat, you must regularly change the administrator passwords. And then make each password unique.
