Hitachi ID Privileged Access Manager Features

Privileged Password Management

A privileged access management system controls access to login accounts that have elevated security rights. It typically controls access to administrator IDs, service accounts and accounts used by one system to sign into another.

Privileged access management systems typically randomize passwords to sensitive IDs, store current passwords in an encrypted vault, connect authorized people and programs to privileged accounts and audit this activity.

A privileged access management system usually does not create privileged accounts, since that is almost always a side effect of installing the system on which they exist. Similarly, these IDs are normally removed when a system is uninstalled.

Privileged Access Manager is a system for securing access to privileged accounts. It works by regularly randomizing privileged passwords on workstations, servers, network devices and applications. Random passwords are encrypted and stored on at least two replicated credential vaults. Access to privileged accounts may be disclosed:

  • To IT staff, after they have authenticated and their requests have been authorized.
  • To applications, replacing embedded passwords.
  • To Windows workstations and servers, which need them to start services.

Password changes and access disclosure are closely controlled and audited, to satisfy policy and regulatory requirements.
