Privileged access management (PAM) is imperative in protecting critical systems and data. Organizations can’t just rely on perimeter-based defenses; instead, they must maintain complete control and visibility over privileged users and their access to various resources to ensure security.
NIST SP 800-171, the Special Publication from the National Institute of Standards (NIST) sets requirements governing how Federal government contractors must protect Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) hosted in nonfederal information systems and organizations.
Organizations need to support the activities of a wide range of end-users, including third-party vendors, contractors, temporary employees, and more.
Privileged Access Management (PAM) offers a way to mitigate them.
Without the proper security solutions in place like monitoring and access management, your organization’s data integrity could be at risk.
