Privileged Access Management is a cybersecurity category that addresses who can access a privileged account and what they can do once logged in to your organization’s network using that privileged account. This is one of the top security priorities for reducing the risk of a cyberattack.
Hackers can use lateral movement to get deep into your company’s data with a single login. This technique is used in most attacks, which is why it is critical to control who has access, when they have access, and how they have access.
Without proper PAM practice, sophisticated hackers can easily breach your network.
