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.

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.
