ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Bomgar, a leader in secure access solutions, is presenting this month at security events in New York City, Washington D.C., and Atlanta. Sam Elliott, director of security product management at Bomgar, will lead various sessions featuring steps for securing access for privileged insiders and vendors. Many organizations trying to secure privileged access for employees or vendors focus solely on the privileged credentials or identities, which is only half the battle. Securing the access pathways is just as vital to protecting critical systems and data from cyber threats. Elliott will outline six steps that organizations need to take to secure privileged access, while simultaneously improving business productivity.

“Data breaches as a result of compromised privileged access are widespread,” said Elliott. “It’s all about privilege – hackers need high level access, which they get through targeting privileged users like IT administrators, service desk technicians, and vendors. Once attackers compromise a remote access pathway and privileged credentials, they can move around the network undetected for weeks or months. Our six steps help organizations to quickly mitigate the risks associated with privileged access, while improving productivity for legitimate privileged users.”
Earlier this year, Bomgar released its Secure Access Threat Report, which revealed insider and third-party access to be growing threats for organizations around the world. The survey of more than 600 IT and security professionals explores the visibility, control, and management that IT organizations in the US and Europe have over employees, contractors, and third-party vendors with privileged access to their IT networks.
