With the business world getting its share of the digital transformation, the sensitivity of public institutions, international companies and SMEs to provide access security has also increased. For these organizations, building a seamless IT infrastructure system in terms of data security is the key to maintaining business continuity. The way to create an IT network with a strong data and access security is through the correct protection of corporate data stacks.
At this point, the protection of privileged account passwords comes to the fore. All passwords of users in your IT infrastructure need to be unique and complex. Because only in this way, it becomes possible to securely store and protect the passwords of privileged accounts. In addition, while trying to attain data security in their IT networks, organizations should prevent users from using the same password in more than one place and use a management system that will allow them to remember and document all passwords.
You need to take advantage of an advanced cybersecurity solution to protect your organization from cyber attacks via emails or ransomware attacks that bring your system to a standstill with the hijacking of privileged account passwords.
Password security of privileged accounts is one of the first steps for organizations to protect their IT infrastructure against different cybersecurity threats. Unprotected and easy passwords can easily be intercepted by a cyber attacker to create data leakage. As a matter of fact, one of the latest studies shows the commonness and simplicity of easy passwords. According to the research, the password "123456", which can be captured in less than a second, is used by 103,170,552 users worldwide. Again, the password “123456789” is decrypted in less than a second and 46,027,530 people use this password.
One of the main ways to prevent data breaches is for organizations to protect the privileged account credentials and passwords they have in their IT infrastructures. Hackers can use various methods to get hold of critical data stacks belonging to your organization. Not having a cybersecurity policy to deal with these methods may expose you to the following risks:
By learning how to properly protect the passwords of privileged accounts, you can significantly reduce the risks above and preserve the confidentiality of your corporate presence in the digital world.
To ensure corporate level password security, you first need to review the wrong cybersecurity approaches that cause you to encounter data breaches. Reviewing these approaches will make it easier for you to successfully establish password security. Then, you can create a password management strategy that includes the following items and take a strong step towards ensuring your organization's password security.
Password management, which is a part of the Privileged Access Management process, is very important to ensure end-to-end data and access security. Our Privileged Access Management (PAM) suite is at your service in protecting the passwords of Single Connect privileged accounts.
Single Connect, with its Dynamic Password Controller (DPC) solution, protects the passwords of privileged accounts in your organization's IT infrastructure and prevents password sharing that may cause breaches.
Single Connect's DPC solution stores all passwords in fully encrypted forms in a secure and central safe called a password vault. Dynamic Password Controller, which creates unique passwords for your target servers and users with privileged access, also automates the randomization of passwords.
The way the Dynamic Password Controller works can be explained as follows:
Dynamic Password Controller, which allows you to create strong passwords, keeps these passwords in secure safes isolated from the system. DPC, which can also activate one or two administrator approval systems for encrypted exit processes, allows you to reserve a password for future use with its password reservation feature. Dynamic Password Controller, which changes the password after each use, also has the split password feature. Thanks to this feature, the passwords of critical systems are divided into parts and connection authorization is given with the participation of all users.
