So the question arises, how do you manage these accounts and provide auditability of the same? Manual password management process are at times unreliable and provide significant scale and security risks to organisations. Opportunities for misuse abound from certain legacy systems with embedded or hardcoded passwords or application-to-application and application to database access.
With most passwords being static, there must be protections against passwords leaving the organization (such as scenarios where an employee may leave). And, auditing and reporting on access is complex and time consuming for passwords.
An enterprise password management solution will automate password and privileged session management, providing secure access control, auditing, alerting and recording for any privileged account.
