Every company uses privileged accounts to maintain its systems. Privileged session management (PSM) encompasses both secure access to these accounts and logging of changes. This makes compliance requirements easy to implement.
Privileged session management
IT (security) incidents must be transparent and reconstructible. This takes on particular importance if an account with privileged user rights is involved in these incidents, regardless of whether this is through an insider (internal employee or external service provider) or an external attacker. Moreover, culprits can easily cover their tracks by changing or deleting logs.
One way to get a handle on these problems is to collect reliable data about technical administration sessions. Solutions like PSM supply information about access by privileged accounts (root rights/expanded administrator rights). The ability to easily reconstruct and analyse configuration activities saves a massive amount of time and money in forensic investigations.
To avoid infringing the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), access to these session logs is precisely determined in advance. The supported four-eyes principle with at least two responsible parties, e.g. a works council member and a member of management, leads to greater acceptance.
