Privileged User Management and Monitoring
Minimize the risks posed by your privileged users with Ekran System’s user activity monitoring, access management, and incident response functionality. ALL-IN-ONE
Protect your organization from privileged user risks
Privileged users and their accounts are considered one the most critical assets in your organization’s security. Here’s why:
Access to the most sensitive data and systems
Fewer cybersecurity controls
Easy to act on malicious intent
High price of human error
Privileged users know the ins and outs of your systems and can abuse their privileges without being noticed. Privileged accounts are also the primary targets for external attackers. Intruders who have access to privileged accounts can easily bypass security precautions and hide any traces of malicious activity.
