Privileged Access Management (PAM) is one of the most important areas in Information Security. As the term suggests, privileged access is granted to privileged users. The privileged users have elevated access rights to business-critical applications, databases, cloud-resources, DevOps, CI/CDs environments among other highly sensitive data-assets.
Thus, managing, monitoring and controlling the privileged access is extremely important. Misuse or abuse of trusted privileges is one of the biggest sources of data breaches and abuse of sensitive information.
A robust privileged access management is essential to thwart insider threats, third-party risks and advanced cyber-attacks. Privileged Access Management practice helps to ensure that any unauthorized access to target systems is denied.
Besides, Privileged Access Management is essential from the compliance perspective. A host of IT standards such as PCI-DSS, HIPAA, ISO 27001, and regulations (GDPR) among many other local regulations as mandated by governments and central banks explicitly ask for role and rule-based access, Multi-factor authentication (MFA), password vaulting, etc. to protect data. The solution offers all the necessary safeguards.
However, the level of complexities in managing privileged users is increasing; so is the level of the privileged access control. Many global organizations have distributed datacentre environments. More and more organizations are adopting cloud-computing. IT developers have privileges to access DevOps tool chains. Furthermore, the pandemic and its implications have meant that most of the workforce access systems remotely.
All these use-cases have necessitated granular control over privileged users along with a strong validation mechanism. Against this backdrop and the proliferation of privileged users, a robust Privileged Access Management is a must to ensure authorized and controlled access to systems.
ARCON | Security Compliance Management (SCM) is a highly effective enterprise-grade solution to identify, assess and mitigate system vulnerabilities. ARCON|SCM automates the entire risk assessment process, manages execution and generates detailed review documentation of IT risk factors.
The vulnerability assessment solution enhances IT controls and visibility by setting-up baseline security configurations and policies for disparate technology platforms. Enterprise IT risk management teams find ARCON| SCM as a robust technology to adhere to various IT security standards for compliance purposes as well.
For a modern-day organization with a large IT infrastructure, it is crucial to have a full-system vulnerability assessment mechanism to detect security risks in a timely-manner. The reason being Information Technology has percolated down across all the layers of modern businesses and is the driving force behind success and growth of businesses. Resultantly, risks and vulnerabilities to the information assets of an organization need to be addressed in a timely manner.
Moreover, in the digital era, which has necessitated a revolution in data management, organizations have to mandatorily audit and review their techno-business processes to enhance IT operational efficiency.
Vulnerability assessment solution such as Security Compliance Management helps the risk assessment and compliance and audit teams to identify security blind spots that remain undetected due to the lack of essential safeguards and time-consuming manual IT audits.
ARCON | SCM helps to enforce comprehensive IT risk management framework. It acts as a unified engine of all IT risks and controls required to be implemented at different layers for IT infrastructure for effective risk mitigation. Additionally, the solution provides comprehensive audit reports to build a robust security posture and ensure compliance.
The ARCON | SCM framework offers a highly scalable and customizable architecture. The solution’s powerful connectors and agents work across technologies with multiple servers and databases.
