Just-in-Time 
Privileged Access

Providing users with access to privileged accounts and resources for a limited period of time. Users are given access only when they need it, reducing the risk associated with giving them unnecessary privileges.

  Unlimited privileges replaced with temporary access & granted only when needed

  Limited access based on roles, adhering to the Principle of Least Privilege (POLP) required by policies and regulations

What is Just-in-Time Privileged Access?


Just-in-Time Access is a cybersecurity practice that involves granting elevated and granular privileged access to an application or system on as required basis. Instead of providing continuous, "always-on" access, just-in time access, grants access only for a specific period and purpose, typically following a formal request and approval process. This approach reduces the exposure time and risk associated with permanent access rights and aligns with the principles of zero trust standing privileges. JIT access is often implemented as part of Identity Access Management (IAM) and Privileged Access Management (PAM) strategies, ensuring that privileged access is strictly controlled and limited to authorized individuals only when necessary.




Types of Just-in-Time Access



Justification-Based Access

Users must justify their need for privileged access, and once approved, they can connect to specific resources for a limited time. Credentials are managed centrally and rotated to reduce privilege abuse risks.

Privilege Elevation

Users can request temporary elevation of privileges for specific tasks. Approval is either automated or granted manually by administrators, specifying the duration. This approach minimizes the time spent on critical systems and automatically revokes access when the task is finished.



Features Of Just-in-Time Privileged Access



Granular Privileges    

   Just-in-Time Privileged access offers granular control over the level of privileges granted. It ensures that users have the minimum privileges required to perform their tasks, following the principle of least privilege (POLP).


Timely Access with Enhanced Security    

  Just-in-Time Access grants time-limited access to privileged resources, ensuring that users have temporary permissions for specific tasks or activities. Once the designated time period ends, access rights are automatically revoked, bolstering security measures.


On-Demand Privilege Provisioning    

   Users can request elevated access as required, submitting requests for temporary privileged permissions. These requests are carefully evaluated and, if approved, users are granted temporary access to perform their designated tasks efficiently.


Just-in time Access (JIT)
    Audit & Monitoring

  Just-in time Access solutions offers comprehensive auditing & monitoring capabilities, logging all access requests, approvals, & activities during privileged sessions. These detailed logs serve as an audit trail, supporting security measures & compliance requirements.


    Streamlined Approval Workflow

  Just-in time Privileged Access incorporates a seamless approval workflow, enabling designated approvers or administrators to review access requests. Through this process, requests are verified, assessed for potential risks, and either approved or escalated for further review.


    Automatic Revocation & Session Termination

  JIT Access automatically revokes temporary privileges and terminates sessions after the authorized time elapses or the user completes their tasks.

Benefits of Just-in-Time Privileged (JIT) Access

Enhanced Security

By limiting the access privileges and implementing a controlled and temporary access model, Just-in-Time access strengthens security and mitigates the risks associated with continuous access.

Increased Operational Efficiency

Streamlining access workflows and automating request approvals saves time and effort for both administrators and users. It reduces delays, eliminates manual intervention, and improves overall operational efficiency in managing privileged accounts.

Reduced Attack Surface

By minimizing the time window for privileged access, JIT access reduces the attack surface and potential exposure to security threats. It helps prevent unauthorized access and limits the impact of any potential breaches.

Frequently Asked Questions


What is the least privilege and just-in-time?

The least privilege principle refers to granting users the minimum level of access required to perform their job functions, reducing the risk of unauthorized access or misuse. Just-in-Time (JIT) access is a method that provides temporary and time-limited access to privileged accounts only when needed, further enhancing security by minimizing exposure.

What are examples of privileged access?

Examples of privileged access include administrative accounts with elevated privileges, such as system administrators, database administrators, network administrators, or accounts with access to sensitive data or critical infrastructure.

Why is Just-in Time Access Control important?

Just-in Time access helps reduce the attack surface by limiting access to privileged accounts or resources, making it harder for unauthorized users or attackers to gain access and move laterally within a network.

What are some common use cases for Just-in time privileged Access Control?

Common use cases include granting temporary administrative access for system maintenance, providing temporary access to critical data, and limiting access to sensitive financial transactions.
