Identifying underlying critical privileged identities in an IT organization infrastructure is important first step to secure accesses. These identities include but not limited to super user accounts, local and domain administrative accounts, service accounts, credentials, and keys. Discovery solutions provide capability to find and bring in these privileged accounts and credentials into PAM tool for secure access management.
Superuser accounts are highly privileged accounts used for administration by specialized IT users. These users/accounts may have unlimited privileges over a system to perform read/write/execute operations, create/modify/delete files, software, users or data. The potential misuse or abuse of privilege by insiders or outside attacker present organization with formidable security risk. ProNoeis solution will protect superuser accounts using security best practices:
Password vault provides an extra layer of control over administrator and password policies, as well as monitoring trails of privileged access to critical systems. Vault store credentials securely with complex encryption. Access to vaults are controlled with secure authorization and all activities are tracked and audited.
Vault includes additional security features such as scheduled password rotation, workflow-based access request and approval mechanism to support just-in-time access control model.
Privileged Session Management enables activities of every privileged user, third-party vendors, connected systems and consoles are managed, monitored and audited from the start to the end of the session.
Kye features includes:
Service accounts are typically used by operating systems to execute applications, run programs, script, and/or web services. Hard-coded password embedded in configuration files or vulnerable storage of these credentials are at risk of being used by threat actors. ProNoesis PAM solutions provide capability to discover these accounts and credentials and vault to manage and protect.
Privileged users can have different level of permissions and privileges on systems. It is a risk to grant default super privileged accesses. Roles based access controls provide better control to segregate different privileged roles for effective governance and compliance. A role may represent a person, a group, a non-human user such as robot, virtual machine, process or a group of other roles.
Some of the most common types of secrets includes Privileged Account Credentials, Passwords, Certificates (e.g. TLS, SSL), SSH keys, API keys, Encryption keys. A non-human user with access to a secret automatically gains real-time access and permissions to any resources belonging to the owner of the secret. These secretes are widespread and immensely powerful. Credential Management allows organizations to consistently enforce security policies for non-human identities. It provides assurance that resources across tool stacks, platforms and cloud environments can only be accessed by authenticated and authorized entitles
