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 the passwords of sensitive accounts, 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 usually a side effect of installing the system on which they exist. Similarly, these IDs are normally removed when a system is uninstalled. Instead, privileged access management systems secure access to these accounts by strongly authenticating users, authorizing their access and granting access only temporarily and with strong audit records, up to and including video capture and key-logging.

Privileged Access Manager secures access to elevated privileges. It eliminates shared and static passwords to privileged accounts. It enforces strong authentication and reliable authorization prior to granting access. User access is logged, creating strong accountability.

Privileged Access Manager secures access at scale, supporting over a million password changes daily and access by thousands of authorized users. It is designed for reliability, to ensure continuous access to shared accounts and security groups, even in the event of a site-wide disaster.

Privileged Access Manager grants access to authorized users, applications and services. It can integrate with every client, server, hypervisor, guest OS, database and application, on-premises or in the cloud.
