In my last two articles, I discussed various aspects of privileged account and endpoint security, with a focus on implementing a new solution. But what if you already have one of these solutions in place? Are you aware of all its features? Have you deployed it for the correct use cases? Are there integrations with other systems you already own that would strengthen your security posture?

These are just a few of the questions the DIT team asks during our Health Check and Optimization Engagements. Our goal is to help you achieve operational excellence in your privileged account security (PAS) program.

Many times, regulatory compliance is the driver for the deployment of a PAS solution. Once such a solution is in place, however, it tends to become an afterthought, used to manage only a small subset of your entire IT infrastructure. But privileged accounts exist in all departments and functions. We can help you discover your blind spots and achieve enterprise acceptance with your PAS program.

During our Health Check and Optimization Engagements, we will:

  • Review several key areas of your PAS deployment to determine their compliance with vendor best practices.
  • Review your existing security architecture to ensure that proper use cases have been deployed.
  • Review system logs to identify any potential errors.
  • Suggest modifications based on our findings, which might include patching, upgrading, use case and best practice workshops, and integrations with other systems.

We can also assist with:

  • Deploying new features
  • Custom plugin development
  • Custom connectors for privileged session management
  • Vault administrator training
  • Advanced reporting
  • Staff augmentation

You’ve already made a significant investment in your PAS program. Let us help you achieve the maximum possible return on investment (ROI) and operational excellence. Our cybersecurity consulting practice focuses on identifying your needs — the ones you see and the ones you don’t — and giving you a plan to match. Led by a team that has delivered identity, access management, and governance services for more than 15 years, DIT bridges the gap between technology features and business realities.
