Privileged access management (PAM) consists of cybersecurity strategies and technologies for exerting control over the elevated (“privileged”) access and permissions for identities, users, accounts, processes, and systems across an IT environment. By right-sizing privileged access controls, PAM helps organizations condense their organization’s attack surface, and prevent, or neutralize, the damage arising from external attacks and insider threats. The domain of PAM falls within the broader scope of Identity and Access Management (IAM) and together they help to provide granular control, visibility, and auditability over all credentials, privileges, and access.

Where IAM ensures proper user authentication and access control. PAM provides detailed oversight and auditing for privileged accounts and sessions. PAM plays a critical role in securing identities, especially in today’s remote work environment. Robust PAM controls are essential to safeguard the entire identity infrastructure.

Implementing a PAM strategy gives you control over who has those special rights to access resources, or to perform actions on those resources. These rights allow users to interact with corporate resources at multiple levels. Some may include administrative rights that are assigned to employees or external service providers, to allow them to work remotely on critical information systems, for example, migrations or maintenance tasks.

For many organizations, privileged access has always been difficult to enforce and manage due to the complexity of controlling who is doing what, across infrastructure that spans many hundreds of applications, traversing many servers, desktops, and including the mobile workforce.

Monitoring Privileged users

Cyberelements PAM solution guarantees security and access in real-time using a variety of techniques:

Password Vault

Reduce the risk of password leaks, and unidentified connections.

Recording Sessions

Privileged users can record and playback sessions.

Real-Time Detection

Detect suspicious or abnormal behavior.

Automated Actions

Automate key scenarios that stop malicious users in their tracks.


Find out who did what, and when.

Notification of Threats

Notify admins as soon as malicious behavior is detected.
