Identity and access management


Identity and access management solutions eliminate the complexities and time-consuming processes often required to govern identities, manage privileged accounts and control access.

Identity and access management (IAM)

Control user and privileged access. Govern identities. Secure data. Get more done with less. Now, identity and access management (IAM) can be driven by business needs, not IT capabilities. With Identity Manager and its modular and scalability capabilities, you can unify security policies, meet compliance needs and achieve governance while improving business agility — today and long into the future.

Privileged Access Management Solutions

PAM Solutions help organizations provide secure privileged access to critical assets and meet compliance requirements by managing and monitoring privileged accounts and access. PAM tools offer features that enable security and risk leaders to:

  • Discover privileged accounts on systems, devices and applications for subsequent management. 
  • Automatically randomize, manage and vault passwords and other credentials for administrative, service and application accounts. 
  • Control access to privileged accounts, including shared and “firecall” (emergency access) accounts. 
  • Isolate, monitor, record and audit privileged access sessions, commands and actions

Privileged Session Management

Allows you to grant access to administrators, remote vendors and high-risk users for a specific period — or session — with full recording and replay capabilities. It gives you a single point of control to authorize connections, view active connections, limit access to specific commands and resources, be alerted if connections exceed pre-set time limits and you can even terminate connections.

(    It’s ‘PAM’ before ‘IAM’, to protect the ‘I’ in IAM    )

The domain of privilege management is generally accepted as falling within the broader scope of identity and access management (IAM). Together, PAM and IAM help to provide fined-grained control, visibility, and auditability over all credentials and privileges.

While IAM controls provide authentication of identities to ensure that the right user has the right access as the right time, PAM layers on more granular visibility, control, and auditing over privileged identities and activities.
