Delinea, a provider of Privileged Access Management (PAM) solutions for seamless security, has announced new and expanded capabilities for Privilege Manager and Connection Manager, its endpoint privilege management and secure remote access management solutions, respectively. With a continued focus on providing flexibility and reducing friction, these expanded capabilities are also designed to reduce the risk of threats like ransomware.
With the latest release of Privilege Manager, US government customers can now integrate their endpoint and application Privileged Access Management capabilities with Microsoft Azure AD Government identities. According to the company, this combination provides enhanced layers of protection, isolation, and compliance required by government agencies.
Merging stringent identity authentication with granular authorization controls limits the risk of compromised credentials and helps prevent attackers from using workstations or applications as an entry point for a ransomware attack on government systems.
Building upon Connection Manager’s secure remote access and session management capabilities, newly expanded features provide customers the flexibility to use their Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) Identity Provider with the browser of choice when initiating remote access sessions through Secret Server, Delinea’s award-winning vault solution.
Security best practices recommend using SAML in conjunction with vaulted credentials and multi-factor authentication to access resources and applications as it reduces the risks of lateral movement and compromised credentials that can lead to ransomware attacks.
Organizations can try the latest version of Privilege Manager and Connection Manager for free.
