Unmanaged privileged accounts - the most powerful users in the organization - are a clear target both for insiders and external attackers, and failure to govern and control privileged identities could result in significant data loss or destruction, malicious or inadvertent damage, fines, and even lawsuits. To determine whether a privileged user should have access to a particular system or resource, it is important to see that userís entire set of access privileges - not just their privileged access. Organizations have implemented solutions to manage privileged users for several years, but these solutions fall short when it comes to providing complete governance. By integrating Dellís solution for privileged management with its identity governance and administration solution, organizations can close security gaps and streamline provisioning and access governance for all users, regardless of their role or level of access needed.
