How to Cure a Bloated Enterprise Attack Surface? PAM with Least Privilege

The pitfalls of poorly controlled privileged access

Privileged access vulnerability issues

  • Lack of awareness of all privileged users, accounts and credentials, including forgotten and orphaned accounts of former employees, creates dangerous backdoors for malicious actors.
  • Hard-coded/default credentials are often embedded in applications, network devices and loT that pose a risk if not removed.
  • Decentralized or siloed credential and identity management tools and processes, often running on multiple platforms, create unnecessary complexity for IT and friction for users, while increasing risk.
  • Password and account sharing within IT teams of root and other privileged credentials for convenience creates security gaps and heightened vulnerability to the most sensitive data.
  • Over-provisioning of privileges creates an unnecessary increase in the number of potential and poorly controlled access points, creating a highly bloated attack surface.

PAM and least privilege best practices will shrink bloated enterprise attack surfaces
