Orange Cyberdefence has chosen Delinea as their leading provider of cloud-ready privilege management solutions. Delinea’s security tools empower over 10,000 organizations, from small businesses to the Fortune 100, to limit privileged account risk, implement least privilege policies, control applications, and demonstrate compliance. Orange Cyberdefense work together with Delinea on solving enterprise-level privilege management challenges for everyone by eliminating dependency on overly complex security tools and prioritizing productivity, flexibility and control.
Orange Cyberdefense has chosen Delinea for its modular and integrated solution that lets you start solving problems right away and expand at your own pace, for multiple layers of privileged account protection.
Delinea is build on a Microsoft stack vs. a complex, proprietary system so it’s accessible to the customers team. The Delinea design uses versatile resources instead of a siloed structure to ensure high availability, increase speed, and reduce cost.
Strong passwords are an important security practice. But they aren’t enough to prevent a data breach.
Hackers use password cracking techniques, brute-force attacks and social engineering trickery to steal enterprise passwords. If they get their hands on a password that uses an authentication token (password hash), they can “pass-the-hash” to breach multiple systems without requiring multiple passwords.
Password management software for the enterprise uses security controls to prevent internal and external threats from capturing master passwords, credentials, secrets, tokens, and keys to gain access to confidential systems and data. These centralized password management systems can be on-premises or in the cloud. Most important is that they provide password security for all types of privileged accounts throughout your enterprise.
When users or applications operate with administrative privileges, they have access to sensitive data, operating systems, and powerful controls. In contrast, under a least privilege model, administrative accounts with elevated privileges are given only to people who really need them, when they need them. All others operate as general, everyday users with an appropriate set of privileges.
Regulations like PCI DSS, ISO27001, and NIST and CIS security controls recommend or require implementing a least privilege model as part of a compliance solution. During an audit, you may have to demonstrate how the principle of least privilege is applied and enforced in your organization to control administrative accounts.
Service accounts are high-risk privileged accounts. They run scheduled tasks, batch jobs, application pools within IIS, and more across a complex network of databases, applications, and file systems. With outsourced IT operations, proliferation of IoT, and the adoption of IaaS and PaaS platforms, understanding the landscape of services and the privileged accounts that run them is extremely challenging for IT and security teams. Service account management, therefore has arisen as a top priority for many organizations.
Effective PAM solutions employ numerous features to lock down privileged access and thwart cyber attacks. They can discover privileged accounts across your organization and import them into a secure, encrypted repository—a password vault. Once all privileged credentials are inside, the PAM solution can manage sessions, passwords, and access automatically. Combine all this with features like hiding passwords from certain users, auto-rotating passwords, recording sessions, auditing, and multi-factor authentication and you have a robust defense against external threats.
Remote work has become the norm. IT leaders must secure a broader, more diverse attack surface than ever before. Cyber risks increase, especially when workers are temporary or new to working from home.
VPN and multi-factor authentication help to protect applications and systems on your corporate network, but they don’t cover all privileged account scenarios. Remote workers also use privileged credentials to access cloud applications such as Infrastructure-as-a-Service and Software-as-a-Service/web apps and they need additional security controls.
