Privileged accounts and users with elevated access have unique requirements that often push management and governance beyond the reach of traditional methods for privileged account management (PAM). The e-book «Strategies to ensure success for your Privileged Management Project» will arm you with questions and perspectives you can use to put in place a successful PAM program:

  • Other names that PAM goes by
  • The benefit of delegating authority in Windows, and why it’s the lesser of two evils
  • The role of sudo in PAM
