2021 DevOps PAM Leadership Compass

It is an innovative approach but one that does bring functional and security advantages – access is faster, onboarding and offboarding of privileged users is quick and there are no passwords to issue or lose, since there are no permanent left-behind credentials. Furthermore, users never handle or see any credentials or secrets at any point when accessing servers. Access is also based on roles to further restrict access to only those authorized.

2020 PAM Leadership Compass

PrivX is a relatively new offering in the market by SSH.COM that attempts to offer an alternative to conventional shared account password management technology by providing a certificate authority based Just-In-Time access for SSH and  RDP. Instead, PrivX dispenses with the need for a vault full of credentials and issues short-lived, or ephemeral, certificates for on-demand access.

Another vendor, SSH.COM, is introducing an approach to JIT access with its “lean” PAM approach. This approach uses “ephemeral” access, granting one-time, short-lived certificates for elevating user access.

Re-Thinking Privileged Access Management for Hybrid Cloud

We learned that high-risk behaviors in many organizations, including password sharing, excessive access, and the bypassing of software security controls, threaten to undermine the security of corporate IT. And we found that more than half of IT and application development professionals would be willing to sacrifice security for speed, bypassing software security controls if they were under pressure to meet a deadline.

PAM for Multi Cloud and DevOps

PrivX is a PAM solution that supports the theory that storing credentials and passwords is bad practice, even in a vault, and especially in the cloud native environments that DevOps operates. PrivX operates primarily without a vault or permanent credentials. Instead, it establishes a trust relationship between the target server environment and itself by acting as a certificate authority for all SSH and RDP (and HTTPS) access.

SSH Governance to Reduce Risk and Bridge the Trusted Access Gap

Universal SSH Key Manager (UKM) is an enterprise-grade SSH user key management solution. UKM takes a nondisruptive approach that enables enterprises to gain and retain control of the SSH infrastructure without interfering with operations in production systems. There is no need to rip and replace how users get their work done or change the hundreds of auto-mated processes that are the lifeblood of ongoing business.
