Every IT asset has at least one local, privileged login account. This includes workstations, servers, network devices, databases, applications and more. Some assets also have privileged accounts used to run services or authenticate one application to another.

Passwords for privileged accounts are used to install software, manage the device and perform technical support functions. They are often “all powerful,” having unlimited access to system functions and data. Consequently, compromise of privileged passwords is effectively compromise of the device.

Secure management of access to privileged accounts is essential to IT security. This document identifies technical challenges and offers solutions for effectively managing large numbers of sensitive passwords.
