Threats may be closer than you think! Trust, but check what happens in your security perimeter.
The information security department must always be aware of where threats are coming from. They can come from outside the company, but they can also be from inside the organization.
Security policies were once based on the concept of a security perimeter, where the “Trust but verify” prevails.. In this type of policy, all users and devices outside of the perimeter must be verified.
When it comes to data breaches, employees themselves can be one of the biggest risks to the organization.
Thus, new security policies must be based on Zero Trust, or zero trust, models. In this way the security perimeter is eliminated and everyone, both outside and inside the infrastructure, must be continuously checked.
These threats can be accidental when staff are poorly trained; Negligent, when employees try to circumvent implemented policies; or Malicious – the most dangerous – when the employee is motivated by financial gain, espionage or revenge.
One way to mitigate the risks of insider threats and limit the damage caused by such actions is to implement senhasegura, which fully meets the requirements to limit user privileges and control access to privileged accounts.
How do we help resolve this vulnerability?
How the senhasegura solution can help your organization to prevent from insider threats:
Ensure that only authorized users can access privileged accounts.
Prevent users from gaining unauthorized privileges.
Improve forensic analysis by generating detailed, tamper-proof audit trails for all privileged account activity.
Establish strict accountability for the use of privileged accounts by tracking who accessed what accounts and what activities were performed.
Quickly detect and receive alerts of any abnormal activity that could signify an internal attack in progress.
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.
Who is it recommended for?
senhasegura is a leading global solution in privileged access management with a mission to eliminate the abuse of privileges in organizations around the world.
The solution is recommended for companies in the following scenarios:
Companies with more than 10 users.
Companies that received points of attention in auditing.
Companies that must comply with cybersecurity rules and regulations.
Companies that want to implement the best security practices.
Companies that have suffered a security incident.
Companies that need to reduce operating costs.
In 2021, senhasegura was recognized as a Challenger in the Gartner Magic Quadrant report. In the same year, Gartner also named us among the top three PAM technologies in the world in its PAM Critical Capabilities report.
In addition, senhasegura was listed in Forrester’s Wave report for Privileged Identity Management 2018, which considered our access granularity among the best in the market. In addition, senhasegura was named a Leader by KuppingerCole in its Leadership Compass 2021 report.
"senhasegura is an excellent PAM tool, allowing the secure management of credentials and secrets, as well as segregation of access and usage traceability. Another important factor to highlight in senhasegura is in the definition of access and privacy policies in the environment, which allows approval workflows are easily configured ensuring adherence and compliance throughout the credential management process."
"Before deploying senhasegura, our organization was in a scenario where there was no management over our privileged credentials, which increased our cybersecurity risks. After deploying the solution, we were able to implement a strong credential management process which minimized the associated risks if those credentials were violated."
