Inside Privileged Access ManagementHitachi ID Systems' Shoham on the Business Drivers, Benefits
Wary of intrusions, data compromise and theft, organizations increasingly are deploying privileged access management solutions. Idan Shoham of Hitachi ID Systems offers the essential do's and don'ts.
Breach prevention is one of the key business drivers, says Shoham, CTO and founder of Hitachi ID Systems. But there also is concern to avoid regulatory penalties or negative publicity that could result from the wrong person accessing privileged data.
"At the end of the day, these are all dimensions of security," Shoham says. "People are basically worried about securing their infrastructure and their data."
And fair warning, he adds: The biggest deployment challenges are not technical; they're organizational.
In an interview about privileged access management, Shoham discusses:
- The business drivers for privileged access management;
- The essential do's and don'ts;
- How to prioritize a PAM deployment.
