The abuse and/or misuse of privileged credentials plays a role in almost every cybersecurity breach incident today. With privileged access in hand. an attacker essentially becomes a malicious insider - and that's an alarming scenario for any IT professional, all the way up to the C-level and the Board.
Privileged accounts are now truly everywhere, but traditional, perimeter-based security technologies can only protect privileged accounts within their boundaries. Each account represents another potential privileged attack vector, and some of them are accessible directly on the Internet. Just-in-time (JIT) PAM can help drastically condense this attack surface and reduce risk enterprise-wide.
