What is Privileged Access Management?

Privileged Access Management (PAM) is a technology for managing access and authentication of authorized users, usually information system administrators, to administrative resources or applications.

The main objective is to secure the information system by removing unauthorized access to sensitive resources. This protection is based on two main axes:

> Management of the injection and life cycle of passwords used in administered resources and administration applications.
> The traceability of all the actions carried out when connecting users with a power of nuisance on the information system, in the form of audit or video traces.

The users with  power concerned by the PAM may be internal users of the information system, such as system administrators or users handling sensitive data, as well as external users such as infomanagers or remote maintenance personnel. PAM tools can be used to secure on-site or remote privileged access.
