Ticking Time Bombs: Uncovering the Silent Threats in Your Privileged Access Environment

Imagine navigating a minefield – every step could trigger a hidden explosive. Unfortunately, many organizations unwittingly wander through such a field when it comes to their privileged access environment (PAE). Unaccounted for or dormant privileged accounts act as silent time bombs, waiting to be exploited by attackers or misused accidentally. 

The Shocking Reality:

  • Research reveals a 10x higher risk of cyber incidents stemming from these “orphan” accounts compared to other vulnerabilities. 
  • Ungoverned accounts become prime targets for attackers, potentially leading to data breaches, abuse, or cyber espionage. 

But fear not! 2B Innovations| PAM offers a solution to detonate these ticking bombs before they cause harm.

  • 2B Innovations| PAM acts like a sophisticated metal detector, unearthing every privileged entity across your entire IT landscape. 
  • It seamlessly onboards all identities, human and non-human, along with valuable assets, into a secure PAM system. 
  • Powerful Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) pre-sets rules, ensuring each entity has the precise permissions they need. 
  • Provisioning and de-provisioning are automated, even for short-term access, guaranteeing lifecycle management and eliminating unnecessary privileges. 

With 2B Innovations| PAM, you gain complete visibility and control over your PAE, transforming it from a minefield into a secure fortress.

Shadow IT Nightmare: Unmanaged SaaS Apps Threaten Your Privileged Access

The cloud boom has brought convenience, but with it, a hidden danger: unmanaged SaaS applications. Business users, from marketing to HR, readily adopt these tools, creating a blind spot in your privileged access environment. 

This uncontrolled sprawl leads to two major threats: 

  • Over-privileged identities: End users often have excessive access, increasing the risk of data breaches and misuse. 
  • Compliance nightmares: Lack of accountability for “who accesses what” exposes you to hefty fines and reputational damage. 

Imagine almost 10% of your cloud data accessible to every employee. That’s the shocking reality according to Veronis, potentially costing millions in exposed information. 

Don’t let SaaS become your security Achilles’ heel. 

2B Innovations’ PAM SaaS Solution is your weapon against the shadow IT threat. Designed for businesses of all sizes, it offers: 

  • Centralized control: Manage users and data centers from a single console. 
  • Complete auditability: Record all sessions for comprehensive security checks. 
  • Scalability and flexibility: Adapt to diverse customer needs and access models. 
  • Real-time protection: Safeguards privileged identities and data with advanced security measures. 
  • Anomaly detection: Identify suspicious user behavior and alert IT administrators. 
  • Just-in-Time (JIT) provisioning: Grant short-term access based on specific needs, automatically revoking rights when tasks are complete.  

2B Innovations’ PAM SaaS Solution is more than just data security – it’s peace of mind. Contact us today and discover how we can transform your cloud environment from a risky shadow to a fortress of control. 

Don't Wait for the Breach: Expose Anomalous User Behavior with 2B Innovations' PAM Solution

A robust Privileged Access Management (PAM) solution is your first line of defense, offering user authorization, authentication, SSO, access control, audit, and governance. But what happens when a privileged user goes rogue, deviating from established policies and exhibiting suspicious behavior? 

Hidden in Plain Sight: The Threat of Anomalous User Activity

This “anomalous behavior” – exceeding assigned permissions or venturing into forbidden territory – can have disastrous consequences. Unidentified, these deviations become ticking time bombs waiting to explode in the form of data breaches, unauthorized access, or malicious activity. 

Enter ITDR: Your Secret Weapon for Detecting and Stopping Threats

Identity Threat Detection and Response (ITDR) is the emerging hero in the PAM landscape. Embedded within 2B Innovations’ PAM solution, ITDR continuously monitors user behavior, using machine learning-powered tools like Knight Analytics to identify potentially harmful deviations.
