Overview

Data breaches are almost always the result of compromised endpoints and privileged credentials. That’s why monitoring and protection of privileged accounts has become crucial. Implementing least-privilege security on the endpoint is also mission-critical, as local administrator rights are prime targets for cyber criminals. To thoroughly protect sensitive data, solutions need to be in place that keep both endpoints and privileged credentials secure.

Zero trust security and PAM

Zero Trust requires controlling access and privileged access accounts can create major security risks.
