January 2023

WALLIX is named as a Leader in the July 2022 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Privileged Access Management in July 2022 has named WALLIX as a Leader, recognized for its overall Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute. We think This affirms our strength in the space, as we continue to deliver a world-class Privileged Access Management solution.


Market Drivers

Gartner has stated that “the primary reason for implementing PAM is to protect the business”, and the market is still seeing strong levels of market growth and adoption — and we at WALLIX fully agree. Privileged Access Management (PAM) is an identity security solution that helps protect organizations against cyber threats by monitoring, detecting, and preventing unauthorized privileged access to critical resources. Privileged Access Management (PAM) is an essential security measure to mitigate the risk of privileged access.

Privileged accounts pose a significant risk to the enterprise. When a hacker manages to compromise a privileged user, he can gain access to all systems, and may even have the ability to sabotage them. A failure to account for the risk of privileged accounts is the root cause of nearly every impactful data breach.

Implementing a Privileged Access Management will make it difficult for an attacker to cause collateral damage into critical services, from an already compromised management access workstation. Tracing and auditing will make it easier to identify misuse of administration interfaces. This will act as a strong deterrent against the insider threat, in case a legitimate system administrator may consider abusing their access.


PAM4ALL Vision

WALLIX is executing its PAM4ALL (“PAM for all”) vision, which consists in delivering the promise of a secure digital transformation for everyone. In particular, this solution addresses new digital challenges, such as the risks related to the democratization of remote and hybrid work, the growing adoption of cloud services, the development of Smart Cities, and the automation in industrial environments and financial services.

To achieve this vision, WALLIX has introduced PAM4ALL, a unified solution that combines all WALLIX technologies and goes beyond securing privileged accounts. PAM4ALL protects all exposed users and endpoints according to the principle of least privilege.

WALLIX PAM4ALL delivers value for all verticals and especially the most critical ones like Industry.
