Participants in PAM

Hitachi ID Privileged Access Manager works by randomizing privileged passwords and connecting people and programs to privileged accounts as needed:

Privileged
accounts

Get new, random passwords daily or at the desired frequency.

IT Users

Must sign into HiPAM when they need to sign into administrator accounts.

Services

Are automatically updated with new passwords values.

Applications

Use the HiPAM API instead of embedded passwords.

Security officers

Define policies regarding who can connect to which privileged account.

Auditors

Monitor access requests and privileged login sessions.
