Hitachi ID Privileged Access Manager Features
Hitachi ID Privileged Access Manager is network security software designed specifically to address the problem of insecure, static and well-known administrator passwords.
- Randomize Privileged Passwords:
Privileged Access Manager periodically randomizes passwords on privileged accounts.
- Launch Privileged Login Sessions:
Privileged Access Manager launches login sessions to privileged accounts subject to access control policies and/or workflow approvals.
- Limit Concurrent Administrator Logins:
Privileged Access Manager controls how many people can sign into the same privileged account at the same time using a checkout/checkin process.
- Record Administrator Logins:
Privileged Access Manager can record the login sessions it launches for users to sign into privileged accounts. These recordings are both a forensic audit trail and a knowledge sharing resource.
- Password History:
Privileged Access Manager captures a full history of passwords for privileged accounts. This is useful when recovering servers and databases from backup media.
- Audit Logs and Reports:
Login sessions to privileged accounts are logged by Privileged Access Manager and visible in reports. This makes administrators accountable for changes they may make to systems and applications.
- Eliminate Embedded Passwords:
Privileged Access Manager allows organizations to eliminate static, plaintext passwords embedded in applications. An API allows applications to secure acquire credentials to other applications on demand.
- Change Service Account Passwords:
Privileged Access Manager periodically changes passwords for accounts used to run Windows services and notifies appropriate OS components, such as service control manager and scheduler, of the new password value.
