Meeting Security Challenges Through Essential Eight-Compliant Privileged Access Management (PAM)
Designating special access to select users to secure critical information and enterprise infrastructure remains one of the most important measures to prevent security breaches. However, a holistic, cyber security framework requires enough time to be set in place, leaving organisations highly vulnerable to exploits and attack vectors even with measures such as privileged access management (PAM). Therefore, enterprises need to undertake critical mitigation strategies such as the Essential Eight as a baseline when aiming for a more mature zero trust environment.
