Universal Privilege Management – What it is and How you can maximize it in your organization?

| ABSTRACT

Threat actors continue to take advantage of the lack of privilege control in organisations across Singapore. 80% of all breaches involve some sort of privilege credential, and nearly 90% of critical Microsoft vulnerabilities could be mitigated just by removing admin rights.

A new era of Privilege Access Management has arrived – The Universal Privilege Management. It’s about more than managing passwords in a vault for a limited set of privileged users. This is no longer enough. Today’s challenge is managing the explosion of privileges across your enterprise, and shrinking the windows of exposure across a widening attack surface, which continue to grow with the expansion of cloud, internet-connected devices, DevOps, and more.

Watch this session to learn how to protect your privileged accounts, including not only traditional administrators, but also external vendors, help desk staff, and also non-human accounts such as applications and service accounts.
