Bomgar Updates Privileged Access Management Platform
Privileged Access Management 15.3 introduces new capabilities that further fortify security while also streamlining access for privileged users.Secure access solutions specialist Bomgar released the latest version of its Privileged Access Management solution, which enables security professionals to control, monitor and manage access to critical systems by privileged users and third-party vendors. With Bomgar, privileged users access secure systems without a virtual private network (VPN), which can reduce the risk of attackers gaining a foothold in a secure network through a compromised VPN connection. Privileged Access Management 15.3 introduces new capabilities that further fortify security while streamlining access for privileged users and improving user administration. "We live in a world where people are more mobile than ever before, and businesses rely on maintaining strong connections with customers and partners via the Internet or other cloud services," Matt Dircks, CEO of Bomgar, told eWEEK. "While this provides amazing opportunities to deliver unique value to customers and markets, it also creates a complex challenge to ensure that only authorized users have access to sensitive resources and systems."
Dircks said it’s almost a statistical certainty that every hack or exploit will in some way, shape or form leverage privileged access to execute an attack, noting that hackers can’t modify or change things unless they have privileged access, making privileged users the most desired target for attackers.
