Virtual Boardroom

An Identity-Centric Approach to Privilege Management in the Cloud

December 8, 2020 | 3:00pm GMT

In association with

Cloud adoption is changing the privileged access management landscape. Privileged Access Management (PAM) tools were originally designed to protect assets within our data centre, within our directory, physical and virtual servers under our control and applications under our management.

As organisations are adopting public cloud, sometimes with multiple vendors, the challenge of securing privileges and reducing risk becomes more complex.  In this panel session we’ll discuss some of the challenges with privilege management in the cloud and how an identity-centric approach enables you to reduce your risk exposure.

Join Centrify and other senior IT and security leaders and decision-makers during this interactive virtual boardroom as we identify the best practices for protecting cloud environments and how taking an identify centric approach to Privileged Access Management can assist to consolidate identities across multi-cloud environments.
