Secure passwords, protect endpoints and control access

Data breaches are almost always the result of compromised endpoints and Privilege credentials. That’s why monitoring and protection of Privilege accounts has emerged as one of the most important aspects of cybersecurity today. In combination with Privilege account discovery and protection, organizations must also enforce a least-privilege management strategy. Implementing least-privilege security on the endpoint is mission-critical, as local administrator rights are prime targets for cyber criminals. To thoroughly protect an organization’s sensitive data, solutions need to be in place that keep both endpoints and Privilege credentials secure.

Zero Trust and access management

Zero Trust requires controlling access and Privilege Access Management is one of the riskiest kinds of access. Implementing a Privilege Access Management solution will lock down Privilege access to your most business critical systems, applications and data. Implementing a least privilege solution on endpoint devices can help stop malware and ransomware attacks from exploiting employee workstations and personal devices which can often be the most vulnerable part of your IT system.

Own your privileged access management journey

Discover unknown accounts

Automatic discovery within IBM Security Verify Privilege Vault makes it easier to find and secure privileges for service, application, root and administrator accounts across your enterprise. Keep privileged credentials safe with secure vaulting and password management. Stay proactive with automated password rotation, secret checkout and workflows for access requests.

Enforce a least privilege strategy

The concept of least privilege management is so important because it helps you proactively ensure that when credentials are abused, privileges are limited. This means that any exploitation on an endpoint can be quickly detected and contained. IBM Security Verify Privilege Manager removes excess privileges from endpoints without negatively impacting productivity.

Monitor for risky applications

Delivering comprehensive privileged access management means securing applications at the endpoint. When business users log into their workstations and need to run an application that requires elevated privileges, IBM Security Verify Privilege Manager controls which applications they are allowed to run with policy-driven controls. Elevating individual applications is the most secure approach to application control.
