Five Ways Privileged Access Management Prevents Insider Threats

According to the Verizon Data Breach Report (2018), over a quarter of attacks are perpetrated by insiders. Unlike external threats, the solution is not as simple as closing all gateways to data – employees need to be able to have the right amount of access in order to get their jobs done. Privileged Access Management (PAM) solutions are particularly effective in defending against insider threats for this very reason.

There are a variety of ways PAM solutions help to detect and protect against insider threats. Specifically, they can: 

  • Manage accounts and roles
  • Control and enforce access
  • Control transitions to privileged accounts
  • Centralize security log data
  • Support compliance reporting
