Heimdal™ Privileged Access Management
Heimdal™ is a cybersecurity provider with a wide range of solutions that offer protection against today’s most prevalent cyberthreats at every layer, including email, endpoint, application, web, and identity. Heimdal™’s security products can all be deployed via one platform and agent, enabling organizations leveraging Heimdal™ to gain in-depth insights into their entire threat landscape from a single, unified pane of glass. Heimdal™ Privileged Access Management is their PAM solution designed to simplify the process of securing user access to privileged accounts, while proactively remediating identity-related threats.
With Heimdal™ Privileged Access Management, admins can log into the intuitive, desktop- and mobile-compatible dashboard to assign permissions according to Active Directory roles, remove local admin rights, live-cancel admin rights, set escalation periods, log sessions, and approve or deny privilege escalation requests – or create approval workflows to automate that process. The dashboard also offers granular reporting functionality, enabling admins to generate reports into privileged account use, including average escalation duration, which users or files were escalated, and what actions were carried out during the session.
This data can be used to support forensic incident analysis, as well as to prove compliance with standards such as NIST AC-5 and NIST AC-1,6. Heimdal™’s PAM solution also proactively remediates threats to privileged accounts by automatically ending privileged sessions when a threat is detected on the user’s device, preventing the spread of malware and stopping attackers from access sensitive corporate data stored in high-tier systems.
Heimdal™ Privileged Access Management deploys in the cloud, which enables it to offer high levels of scalability and allows admins to log in at any time, from anywhere. The solution integrates seamlessly with Heimdal™’s other solutions, making it particularly suitable for their existing customers. However, we’d also recommend Heimdal™ PAM to any-sized organization looking for an easy way to manage and automate their privilege escalation processes, as well as monitor the activities of privileged users while access high-tier systems.
