How to address the challenge of
shared accounts password management
One of the biggest risks to the security of your IT infrastructure arises from the sharing of privileged user accounts. Simply put, the more people who are granted privileged access, the greater the risk of that access being misused – either accidentally, or with malicious intent.
Shared accounts also dramatically reduce admin productivity, since each user must securely store, and then accurately enter, multiple complex, and frequently changing passwords, just to carry out their daily tasks.
Managing these passwords securely, even for small numbers of privileged users is very resource intensive, and quickly becomes unworkable as your organization grows.
Password Manager in depth
To reduce the risks posed by shared administrative accounts, local accounts or database admin accounts, WAB Password Manager stores these credentials in a certified vault, where they can be centrally managed (generated, hidden, revealed, or changed) from a single console. And since these critical passwords need never be revealed to your privileged users, they can be automatically randomized to long, complex strings in order to increase their security.
