The Privileged Session Manager serves as a control mechanism, determining the duration and purpose for which an administrator—whether human or machine—can access a digital resource. It allows privileged users to access vital IT assets, such as the management UI for devices or the root file for UNIX servers. Session management introduces an extra layer of control and security by imposing either a time limit or a functional limit, along with a time constraint, on the administrator's access during a specific session.
An advanced privileged session management system gives IT and security leaders comprehensive control over privilege account logs, ensuring a clear audit trail for privileged access to meet regulatory requirements.
A privileged session manager enhances the security of privileged accounts by serving as a proxy gateway server that creates a secure tunnel between the user's device and the target system. This eliminates unauthorized access, ensuring secure communication without sharing confidential passwords.
Various regulatory standards (e.g., GDPR, HIPAA, PCI DSS) mandate strong controls over privileged access. Privileged session management helps organizations in meeting compliance requirements by offering strong monitoring and auditing capabilities.
Privileged session management solutions provide real-time monitoring of active sessions, enabling security teams to swiftly detect and respond to suspicious activities or security breaches. Enforcing strict access controls limits the number of privileged users, thereby reducing the risk of unauthorized access.
Privileged Session Manager records user sessions, capturing all actions during access to critical assets. This recorded data can be replayed for forensic analysis or audits, offering a comprehensive view of user interactions with sensitive systems.
Enable real-time monitoring of privileged sessions by security administrators and authorized personnel. Observing user activities allows organizations to swiftly detect suspicious or unauthorized actions, facilitating immediate intervention to mitigate potential security threats. Real-time monitoring enhances security through a proactive approach to privileged session management.
Privileged Session Manager promotes collaboration among security teams and administrators in live monitoring sessions. Multiple team members can join a session to collectively oversee privileged user activities. This collaborative approach enhances decision-making and incident response efficiency, ensuring critical insights and observations are shared among team members.
Automated Workflows in PAM streamlines access requests, approvals & revocations through predefined & automated processes. Users initiate requests, and the system automatically directs them to the appropriate approvers, reducing manual intervention. This not only improves operational efficiency but also ensures compliance with security standards.

A privileged account refers to an account with elevated permissions and access privileges that enable users to perform administrative or critical functions within a system or network.
PAM (Privileged Access Management) focuses on managing and securing privileged access throughout an organization's IT infrastructure, while PSM (Privileged Session Management) specifically addresses the control and security of privileged user sessions, ensuring monitoring, isolation, and auditing capabilities.
Privileged Activity Monitoring refers to the practice of actively monitoring and recording actions performed by privileged users or accounts within an IT system or network, aiming to detect and prevent any unauthorized or malicious activities that could pose a security risk.
