Eliminate Shared Accounts and Passwords - Hitachi ID Privileged Access Manager

Many organizations have insecure processes for managing privileged accounts -- IDs and passwords on servers, workstations, applications and network devices with elevated privileges. Inappropriate disclosure of these passwords would lead to serious security compromise:

Hitachi ID Privileged Access Manager is designed to address the challenges posed by management of thousands of privileged accounts:

  1. Each privileged password is changed regularly -- usually once per day.
  2. Privileged passwords are set to random strings. No two are ever alike and no single privileged account gets the same password twice.
  3. IT staff are authenticated, personally, before gaining access to administrator accounts such as Unix/root or Windows/Administrator.
  4. Programs that require access to sensitive passwords are authenticated, using a one-time-password and their IP subnet, before being granted access to a password.
  5. Access control rules and a workflow authorization engine determine whether a given IT user or program may access a given password.
  6. Audit logs track access disclosure, creating accountability.
