The Paradigm of usability versus security often get in the way when it comes to privileged identity and access management (PIM / PAM), resulting in permanent administrator access left in place for a long time after the contractor finishes their engagements.
Lack of federation, basic security standards, proper secret management, password rotation and removal of permanent elevated access to systems, is often an afterthought or pushed to the future phases, leaving millions of systems easy target.
The combination of advisory, architecture and security experts are the key success in selection and prioritisation of a successful PIM/PAM programme.
Kontex has a novel approach to solving the problem – by combining the appropriate process and integrating applications with the right technology to combat insider or outsider threats. Establish security privileges across managed systems and data sources.
Lack of expertise, focussing only on audit findings or addressing PIM/PAM problems only by technology in form of a project is often the main reason of failure to address the main security thread vector. Kontex’s experience team of experts address the problem through a tailored approach utilising framework and constantly evolving maturity model.
