What is Privileged Access?
Privileged Access is the process of assigning higher access levels to particular systems, data, or resources. It’s a way to secure sensitive data at a more granular level to ensure optimized usage across enterprises. It works in conjunction with IAM tools and Privileged Accounts.
Why is Privileged Access important?
Privileged Access is a critical part of any cyber security and/or IAM strategy. Enterprises must have a clear understanding of their confidential and sensitive resources, data, and systems so they can control access. Only specific Privileged Accounts should have Privileged Access to highly confidential or sensitive resources, data, and systems.
Cyber criminals are always looking for accounts, users, and other entry points with Privileged Access so they can compromise them. They should be secured at the highest levels.
