Single Connect offers advanced cyber security services to companies and institutions in the field of Privileged Access Management. Single Connect is comprised of six modules that allow you to complete different tasks. Let's review the aforementioned modules and their features to examine Single Connect from A to Z.

Privileged Session Manager

This dynamic, expandable and highly integrated module ensures both the reconfiguration of the workflows in the network with the help of script clusters, and monitoring by conducting the required authorizations. The PSM is a central solution and prevents possible mix-ups in terms of access management and security. Therefore, all sessions in your IT infrastructure become manageable. Thanks to these features, the Privileged Session Manager module was also mentioned as "the best in its class" in Gartner's "Critical Capabilities" report.

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)

Thanks to the MFA feature, which allows you to request simultaneous time and location verification, all users requesting privileged access to your IT infrastructure are verified both in terms of time and place, and this request is forwarded for admin approval, thus strengthening the layer of access control.

Database Access Manager and Dynamic Data Masking

Being comprised of two components, this module allows the 24/7 monitoring of all admin operations, records every operation, and masks data. In turn, you have peace of mind regarding how your IT infrastructure operates.

Privileged Task Automation (PTA)

Eliminating service downtimes and increasing efficiency to the next level, PTA allows you to automate the routine tasks in your business model and mitigate human errors.
