Overview: This paper discusses best practices for privileged account access management and privileged password management (PPM), and shows how the Symark PowerKeeper appliance creates a “defense in depth” across the IT portfolio. PowerKeeper is a secure, hardened appliance that provides both a mechanism and a “process” to ensure best practices to secure and control access to any accounts deemed “privileged” or sensitive and thus sharply reduce the likelihood of fraud or theft of proprietary data. Because the damage from a security breach is felt across the organization, PowerKeeper's role in risk management is also discussed. PowerKeeper serves as a vital component in moving an organization away from a “trust-based” system that is often exploited to a more secure process-based system that will increase security and foster compliance.
