The Centralized PAM platform removes the need for multiple separate items and allows enterprises to protect exclusive access to end-to-end essential IT properties using a single bundle.

FREMONT, CA: Securden, a leading supplier of Privileged Access Governance tools, announced the introduction of a fully integrated Privileged Access Management (PAM) platform that provides comprehensive, privileged access protection for company IT teams. The Centralized PAM platform removes the need for multiple separate items and allows enterprises to protect exclusive access to end-to-end essential IT properties using a single bundle.

The perimeter of the network has practically gone, and the many forms of identities have become a new perimeter. Privileges now lie spread worldwide, and hackers have focused their sights squarely on privileged accounts. Most cyber threats today include data theft and misuse of privileged access.As a result, privileged access protection has proven to be a core aspect of information security and a high priority initiative for IT administrators, CIOs and CISOs. Due to accelerated digital transition and other IT developments, PAM criteria for successful risk avoidance now fall within a wide range.

"While PAM is a priority, enterprises wanting to deploy it are often bogged down by the sheer complexity of the disjointed solutions. Securden Unified PAM serves as a one-stop solution for holistic privileged access security," said BalaVenkatramani, CEO, Securden. "Built on modern security principles keeping in mind the latest IT trends and attack vectors, Securden Unified PAM is incredibly easy-to-use all the way. Organizations can get started and see the value in under 60 minutes saving a lot of time and resources," he added.

Customers must deploy several point items to satisfy their privileged access protection specifications completely. IT branches often end up with one installation for privileged account management, another for remote session management, another for DevOps hidden management, a different one for local admin privileges management, and a whole range of items for endpoint access management and user behavior analytics. It all involves several investments, multiple configurations, several training, consultation courses, and a lot of effort to secure the facilities completely.

In a single package, Securden Unified PAM delivers:

End-to-end Privileged Accounts Lifecycle Management: Safely store, protect, and automate the management of all high-privileged account credentials, keys, and identities. Centrally manage, audit, monitor, and report all access to vital IT properties and reduce the risks associated with privileged access.

Secure Remote Access Management: Allows home-based IT workers and third-party contractors to launch secure, one-click (RDP, SSH, SQL, and others) connections to remote servers, databases, smartphones, web applications, and other VPN-free enterprise services. Ensure unified, completely audited, zero-trust, just-in-time access that is easy and scalable.

Remote Session Monitoring and Management: Track privileged sessions with complete access. Intervene on-going collaboration sessions when a peer requires help or terminates if malicious activity is detected. Record forensics sessions and replay sessions when necessary.

Application-to-Application Credentials, Secrets, Machine Identities Management: Programmatically access and manage credentials, secrets, and keys through APIs. Move secrets between computers, containers, programs, utilities, scripts, procedures, DevOps/CI/CD pipelines, and other organizations in a fully automated manner.

Privilege Elevation and Delegation Management: Maintain Zero Standing Privileges (ZSP) and assign special rights to specific host users. Establish policies that define orders, programs, and procedures that need to be raised for sysadmins signing in as standard users. Alternatively, temporarily elevate on-demand rights for standard users to unique hosts.

Endpoint Privilege Management:

1. Remove local admin rights on endpoints and seamlessly elevate programs to normal users.
2. Monitor the use of the application by workers by whitelisting and blacklisting and offer time-limited broad privileges on demand.
3. Enforce the least privilege around the enterprise without compromising the user experience.
4. Prevent the dissemination of ransomware and comply with numerous IT laws that require the least privilege of compliance.
