    PAM helps you meet regulatory requirements and demonstrate compliance. 


    Security regulations across industries and geographies require Privileged Access Management

    Compliance frameworks require accountability through authentication and control of access. Security compliance audits are a stressful, time-consuming effort for many companies. PAM software can streamline the process by automatically verifying privileged identities, limiting access to sensitive information, and curtailing an attacker’s ability to circulate throughout your IT environment.

    Plus, PAM solutions create an immutable audit trial to demonstrate that required controls are in place and effective.

    Effective privilege management helps you pass compliance audits and reduce your cyber risk.

    Enterprise password management

    Compliance mandates require that all passwords be complex, changed regularly, and stored in a secure way. If privileged users are expected to manage passwords manually to meet security compliance requirements, they often fail to meet requirements.

    To pass an audit, you must implement and enforce granular limitations on access privileges for systems and data. Unknown, unmanaged, and unprotected Privileged Accounts violate compliance mandates.

    PAM automates password management for enterprise-wide compliance with corporate and regulatory mandates.

    Identity and access management for servers

    Compliance frameworks highlight identity security, multi-factor authentication, and granular, least privilege access as essential cybersecurity controls.
    They expect to see privileged accounts associated with individual users, rather than shared.

    Protection for workstations

    Compliance for compliance sake is not the goal. The real goal is effective security against rising cyber threats. Compliance mandates recognize the need to secure user workstations, as these are often a prime entry point for cyber attacks.

     With PAM you can deploy endpoint protection for workstations that includes management of local privileged accounts and applications, just-in-time, just-enough privilege elevation, and detailed auditing of privileged activities.

    Audit logs and session recordings to demonstrate compliance

    Data gathering can often form a large portion of the audit process. By monitoring and recording privileged sessions with enterprise PAM, you can capture events and ensure there are no visibility gaps. Automated, centralized reporting saves you time pulling together documentation to show auditors.

    Secret Server helps you meet regulatory requirements and demonstrate compliance to satisfy internal and external auditors. Out-of-the-box and custom reporting features save time and make executive reviews and audits painless. See how Secret Server manages privileged sessions and reports on privileged activity »

    “External auditors say, ‘prove to us that these credentials haven’t been used for anything they shouldn’t have been used for.’ When the auditors came back this year, they gave us high marks. Nice green ticks make my boss and his boss very happy.”
