Privileged Access Management (PAM) is a cybersecurity practice that focuses on controlling and securing access to sensitive and high-level accounts and resources within an organization. Privileged accounts are special accounts that function as superusers or administrators. Privileged accounts have access to more capabilities than regular users. Protection and management of privileged accounts is critical since any kind of security or data breach will compromise the security of the whole ecosystem. And so, accounts that have information about every other user account and other exclusive access need more layers of security. All the above-mentioned issues can be efficiently resolved through a PAM solution, in the form of additional security known as a Privileged Access Management Solution.
Limiting the access of applications, technology, and people, to privileged users automatically ensures that any traces of wrongful entrances are also diminished.
PAM minimizes the number of rights for every privileged account and so if that account gets compromised it will be within a very narrow scope of a data breach.
Protects credentials of confidential software, accounts, privileged accounts, and other related systems. All this is managed in a secure repository.

Privileged accounts can pose a considerable risk to an organization’s security if they get compromised. Let us take a scenario where the credentials of a normal user account get compromised. The hacker will have access to information and access rights of that particular account only. One of the pressing challenges is the management of privileged access, which is often poorly controlled and monitored. Unauthorized or mismanaged privileged accounts can lead to data breaches, system vulnerabilities, and compliance violations.
To mitigate these risks, organizations require a robust Privileged Access Management (PAM) solution. Privileged Access Management (PAM) cybersecurity strategy addresses the pressing problem of mismanaged and uncontrolled privileged access within organizations. PAM solutions provide essential tools and controls to enhance security, enforce the principle of least privilege, and mitigate the risk of data breaches and cyberattacks, ultimately safeguarding sensitive data and critical systems.
The increasing number of endpoints and the growing complexity of cyber threats are making organizations more vulnerable than ever, and that's why effective Endpoint Privilege Management is essential to protect sensitive data, prevent unauthorized access, and mitigate the risk of security breaches. The Endpoint Privilege Management feature of miniOrange's Privileged Access Management solution enables you to remove local admin rights, enforce the least privilege and deploy endpoint security controls.
The Agentless Privileged Access Management feature offers a hassle-free deployment process, as it eliminates the need for installing and managing PAM agents on each endpoint. This not only simplifies the deployment, but also saves valuable time and resources. Moreover, organizations can mitigate the risks associated with agent vulnerabilities or compromise by removing the dependency on agents, ensuring a more secure privileged access management environment.
Protect your user accounts in a centralized manner with the Password Vault feature of miniOrange's Privileged Access Management solution. Password Vault Identifies and adds privileged accounts to the management system, and ensures the secure storage of privileged passwords in an encrypted vault while effectively eliminating embedded credentials in scripts and code. It also auto-updates passwords periodically. This eliminates the risk of credential theft of privileged accounts and ultimately improves endpoint security.
When certain users or employees require urgent access to resources that are restricted to them, then with Just-in Time Access you can enable them with appropriate privileges when necessary and for the least amount of time so that both work & security doesn't get hampered. This feature ensures that security doesn't bring down convenience, and both security & convenience are balanced out properly in order to provide a secure and efficient work environment.
Get real-time visibility through live session streaming, enabling you to monitor and respond to potential security threats promptly with Session Monitoring & Control. Session recording ensures a comprehensive audit trail for compliance and forensic investigations. You can Instantly terminate sessions to halt suspicious activities and minimize the impact of security breaches. Also, you and your team can get instant alerts when unauthorized behavior is detected, and you can easily monitor and analyze session activities with an intuitive dashboard.
With Privilege Elevation & Delegation feature of Privileged Access Management, you can grant specific users with time-limited access to resources that are restricted to them as per their current privileges. Instead of giving standard users permanent access to critical resources, you can easily give them exclusive time-bound access to minimize the risks associated with over-privileged users. You can ensure maximum security while saving time by following the principle of the least privilege.
