According to Forrester, 80 percent of all hacking-related data breaches involve privileged access credentials. This illustrates that the legacy approach to Privileged Access Management is no longer enough and requires a rethinking of how to protect against privileged access abuse in today’s dynamic threatscape.
The Centrify mission is to enable digital transformation at scale, modernizing how organization secure privileged access across hybrid and multi-cloud environment by enforcing Identity-Centric PAM based on Zero Trust Principles.
A New Approach to Privileged Access Management is Needed
As traditional network perimeters dissolve, organizations must discard the old model of “trust but verify” which relied on well-defined boundaries. Zero Trust mandates a “never trust, always verify, enforce least privilege” approach to privileged access, from inside or outside the network.
Organizations may consider approaching Privileged Access Management (PAM) by solely implementing password vaults, leaving gaps that can easily be exploited. Centrify Zero Trust Privilege combines password vaulting with brokering of identities, multi-factor authentication enforcement and “just enough” privilege, all while securing remote access and monitoring of all privileged sessions.
