Security is a core issue in IT. A decisive factor for secure infrastructure is reliable access control. Of particular concern are extended access rights for administrators. While “normal users” only have limited access to critical areas, users with admin rights have access to sensitive systems and data. For this reason, there are dedicated solutions that manage access for privileged users: so-called Privileged Access Management tools, or PAM for short.
PAM with Osirium
The basic principle of PAM is the separation of user and password. The user is assigned a role, passwords are managed centrally by the PAM tool, and the user is granted access based on the role assigned to them. To do this, the user logs on to the Osirium PAM platform via multi-factor authentication and can then move freely in all areas for which their role is authorized without having to enter another password. This ensures maximum security and also prevents violations of standards such as ISO 27001, GDPR or NIST 800.
PAM with PRTG, at a Glance
As mission-critical software, Osirium must be constantly available. PRTG can monitor the Osirium PAM platform via API and ensure that steps are taken immediately to rectify any malfunctions. In addition, PRTG can import data from Osirium and integrate it into central monitoring, such as the number of users currently logged in, the profiles deployed, or the devices managed with Osirium. Unusual numbers in these areas can be an indication that the system has been compromised.
PRTG & Osirium PAM for more Security
The coordinated use of PRTG and Osirium PAM brings a whole range of benefits:
Convenient and secure access control
for highly sensitive areas
Protection of the PAM system
Additional security by including
the PAM system in daily monitoring
