How to Bridge Privileged Access Management and Identity Management

Privileged Access Management

Traditional perimeter-based security has become costly and ineffective. As a result, communication security between people, systems and networks is more important than blocking access with firewalls. Furthermore, most cybersecurity risks are caused by just a few super users – typically one in 200 users. There’s a company looking to bridge the gap between traditional PAM and IdM solutions and secure your one in 200 users – SSH communication security.

Your Privileged Access Management (PAM) and Identity Management (IdM) must work hand-in-hand to secure the access and identity of your users, both regular and privileged users. But traditional solutions struggle to achieve that.

Privileged access management

Let’s look at what organizations need to understand about PAM and IdM and how you can bridge and future-proof your PAM and IdM.

PIM, PAM, IAM – you need all three

Privileged Identity Management (PIM), Privileged Access Management (PAM) and Identity and Access Management (IAM) – all three are closely linked and you need all three to effectively manage and manage your digital identities, users and access to secure.

Let’s quickly review what PIM, PAM and IAM focus on:

Not all digital identities are equal: super users need super protection

Think about this: your typical user probably needs access to regular office tools, like your CRM or M365. They don’t need access to your critical assets.

The identity verification process must be consistent with this. A regular user must be authenticated with strong authentication methods, for example Microsoft Entra ID, but usually there is no need to proceed further.

These typical users make up the majority of your users, up to 99.5% of them.

On the other hand, you have privileged users with a high impact – they are only a small number (typically about one in 200 users), but the power and risks they bring are enormous because they have access to your critical data, databases and infrastructures. and networking.

Similarly, appropriate identity verification procedures should apply. In the case of your high impact users: you need access controls that go beyond strong, identity-based authentication.

Enter the Zero Trust: borderless, passwordless, keyless and biometric future

Traditional solutions are not sufficient to bridge your PAM and IdM. They simply can’t handle the security you need to protect your critical assets. They also cannot provide effective and future-proof security controls for the access and identity of both your typical and high-impact users.

The future of cybersecurity is borderless, passwordless, keyless, biometricand zero trust.

This means you need a future-proof cybersecurity model without implicitly trusted users, connections, applications, servers or devices. Plus, you need an extra layer of security with passwordless, keyless, and biometric authentication.
