privileged access management

challenges

Hackers continually evolve the methods they use to gain access to your systems and data. Ultimately, they want to get to your privileged accounts. In nearly every recent high-profile breach, privileged accounts have been compromised to gain access to critical systems and data.

You can limit the damage from a breach by deploying solutions that provide a secure, efficient and compliant way to access to privileged accounts. For IT managers, these all-access accounts are a challenge to manage for several reasons, including the sheer number of the privileged accounts and the number of people that need access to them.

On top of these challenges, traditional privileged access management (PAM) solutions involve complex architectures, lengthy deployment times and onerous management requirements.

  1. Hackers shift their interest to APIs.

    The amount of sensitive data exposed via APIs is increasing significantly, making APIs a primary target for attackers. They’ve started to look for vulnerable, broken APIs to find ways to the back-end systems that store sensitive data. And they are becoming increasingly successful. Many recent huge data breaches have leveraged APIs – just think of the Salesforce.com, US Post, T-Mobile and Strava incidents.
  2. Traditional security solutions are insufficient

    Today’s API attacks are increasingly complex, targeted and easily bypass traditional security solutions. These attacks CANNOT be detected by signature-based web application firewalls (WAFs), authentication or other baseline security tools. Advanced API attacks can only be prevented by targeted solutions. Without this knowledge in mind, businesses may expose their core systems data with a false sense of security.
  3. API developers work without focusing on security

    Security is not a priority for many application development projects: they focus on the functional specification, user experience and deadlines. Often, security requirements are not specified in detail in these projects. Developers don’t think like attackers. As there are no API-standards, they only deal with security on a best-effort basis. This practice leads to unique vulnerabilities in public-facing APIs, which in turn creates risk for the business and opportunities for the bad guys.
  4. Regulations require secure API communication

    PSD2 requires banks to open their APIs directly to retailers and third-party payment providers (TPP or fintech). GDPR indirectly requires the anonymization or pseudo-anonymization of personal data in transit. The PCI DSS requires financial providers to encrypt transmission of cardholder data via public networks, etc.  All these regulations have one key requirement in common: companies must protect customers’ data at rest and also in transit. To meet these criteria, regulated industries like finance or public services must start thinking about how to secure the sensitive data flow via their public-facing APIs.
solution

Our Privileged Access Management solutions mitigate security risks and help you achieve compliance by securing, controlling, monitoring, analyzing and governing privileged access to critical organizational data and applications.

Our privileged access management solutions enable you to provide the full credential when necessary or limit access with granular delegation for least privileged access. All privileged activity is recorded, and all keystrokes are logged with real-time analyzation of activity and data. This eliminates shared credentials and assigns individual accountability to administrators with the ability to detect and halt unknown threats immediately.

The result is enhanced security and easier compliance with more efficient administration and governance of privileged access. Balasys’s consultancy services will help you identify your privilege management challenges and assemble the right solution set.

We can customize our implementation services to meet your exact requirements. After implementation, our training services will boost the efficiency of your operations staff. Should you need further assistance, we can help you with operations support.

Development concept

Our Development concept

We continuously develop our API security concept to create a highly competitive and future-proof solution. On the top of our existing product functionality, we’re planning to add traffic transformation, authentication and malware detection capabilities. Our development plans include, but are not limited to:

- Data enrichment
- Anonymization & data masking
- Format and protocol conversion (e.g. json2xml)
- Graceful degradation of services in peak times
- Support of multiple authentication methods (AD/LDAP, X.509, Kerberos, OAuth, OpenID, SAML, etc.)
- Multi-layer content filtering
