Department of Homeland Security Utilizes Appliance for Privileged Identity Management

6 Pages IDC April 20, 2011 SKU: IDC6381736

This IDC Buyer Case Study looks at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and its use of the Xceedium GateKeeper appliance for achieving privileged identity management.

IDC defines PIM as the implementation, restriction, and management of privileged identities. Privileged user accounts are the most powerful accounts defined within critical applications and the servers, operating systems, and databases on which they run. These include, but are not limited to, generic accounts such as Administrator on Wintel platforms, Root on Unix systems, Cisco Enable, DBA passwords, and the hard-coded passwords found in application scripts throughout an enterprise. Privileged identity management encompasses privileged password management technologies, such as reset rules and synchronization, and adds the ability to provide critical levels of auditable granularity in a scalable fashion, especially in large-scale computing environments.
