Using technology for password reset security and automation is critical to regulatory compliance and improving application and system security.
A passwordless environment is still a distant concept, despite being discussed for a long time.
For now, the world is locked into usernames and passwords, and no matter howsecure the authentication solution is, those credentials won’t be wiped out overnight.
That’s why it’s important to develop processes and use technologies that allow you to securely reset passwords. Some regulations such as PCI-DSS even directly instruct the frequency that passwords need to be reset, in addition to other rules.
Having the technology to secure and automate this process is critical to regulatory compliance and improving application and system security.
How do we help resolve this vulnerability?
How the senhasegura solution can help your organization to deal with password resets:
Determined by the institution's password policies
Based on the company’s password policies registered in the system, the PAM solution automatically and periodically changes passwords, bringing greater operational efficiency to the information security team.
Determined by password exposure
When a user is authorized to view a password stored by the PAM solution, the password can be used for a certain period of time on the system. When that time expires, the appliance will immediately change the password so that the credential returns to the custody of the appliance.
Requested by an Administrator User
A user with administrator privileges on the PAM solution can schedule a password change for some or all of the devices registered in the PAM solution at any time.
PAM Core – Management of the Full Cycle
of High Privilege Credentials
Centralized access management, with the objective of protecting and controlling the use of generic and high-privilege credentials, providing secure storage, segregation of access and full traceability of use.
When configuring access groups, you can define the administrator users who will be allowed to be given a physical access password and the group of users who can use the remote access provided by the solution to access a target device or system.
All cases can follow multi-level approval workflows and reasons provided by the requesting user.
