EMA Webinar to Present Actionable Guidance to Succeed in Enterprise-Class Privileged Access Management (PAM)

BOULDER, Colo., May 19, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Enterprise Management Associates (EMA), a leading IT and data management research and consulting firm, today announced it will host a webinar titled "Actionable Guidance for Succeeding in Enterprise-Class Privileged Access Management" featuring Steve Brasen, research director of endpoint and identity management at EMA, and Paul Lanzi, chief operating officer and co-founder of Remediant.

According to EMA primary research, 79% of organizations consider privileged access management to be very important or critical to their business operations. However, 76% of organizations experience significant privileged access policy violations each year, exposing the most sensitive business information and IT resources to extreme risks of exposure. Clearly, traditional processes reliant on simply enforcing complex, rotating, privileged account passwords are not effective and are not adaptable to complex IT ecosystems supporting remote work forces accessing IT resources hosted across a variety of on-premises and cloud environments. The principle challenge for many IT and security managers is in identifying clear goals for PAM and organizing a logical sequence of process improvements to achieve them.

To assist organizations with identifying and deploying strategic improvements to PAM practices and solutions, EMA developed an evaluation guide for achieving optimal PAM implementations. During this webinar, Brasen and Lanzi will discuss key elements of this guide. Attendees will attain actionable guidance on how to advance their PAM implementations regardless of where they are currently in their security management journey.

Topics of discussion will include:

    --  Primary barriers to success with implementing a PAM solution
    --  Key features organizations should look for in a PAM platform
    --  How PAM processes may be adapted to work with existing security and
        endpoint management implementations
    --  The features and qualities of PAM solutions that should be adopted to
        address challenges in different types of business environments
    --  The order in which specific PAM functionality be introduced
    --  How PAM products should be evaluated to ensure adoption of the solutions
        that will most effectively meet business requirements

The webinar is Thursday, May 28 at 2:00 p.m. Eastern. Registration is available at: https://info.enterprisemanagement.com/succeeding-in-enterprise-class-privileged-access-management-webinar-pr.
