Privileged access management is challenge for all organizations with a large workforce and many resources to protect.
GaraSign simplifies and strengthens PAM by enabling centralized management of digital identities and credentials, including the option to enforce granular controls without needing to make manual modifications to servers or applications.
In many ways, privileged access management boils down to protecting and managing the credentials needed to access privileged systems and data. Web applications are accessed with TLS, requiring proper protection of the TLS keys. Sensitive systems are accessed via protocols like SSH and RDP, which means the SSH keys and RDP keys must be kept secure. Strong encryption is used to secure sensitive data, so the the decryption keys must be protected. All of these keys should be safeguarded with hardware-level protection.
Because all digital identities and cryptographic keys are centrally secured and managed, select keys can be left in a disabled state until it’s time to use them. Decryption keys for sensitive data, SSH keys for privileged systems, code signing keys for production releases, and more, should be disabled, and activated only when they must be used.
GaraSign supports a number of granular controls, including MFA, device authentication, approval workflows, and more. Clients authenticate to GaraSign when they request to use a key, so these granular controls can be enforced on a per-key or per-user basis with a few clicks from the GaraSign interface. There’s no need to manually reconfigure servers.
With GaraSign, the process of creating and assigning digital identities is drastically simplified. All certificates and keys are generated and stored within a centrally-managed hardware secure module (HSM). Clients send requests to use a key to GaraSign, which then authenticates the client according to the set policies and, if approved, performs the private key operation on the client’s behalf. Granular access controls can be enforced on a per-key or per-user basis.
