Keeper Security hails easier privileged access management for SMBs

Passwords, privileges, secrets and connections aren’t being as well managed as they should be in small to medium-size businesses (SMBs), according to Keeper Security.

Darren Guccione, chief executive and co-founder at Keeper Security, warned that SMB adoption of privileged access management (PAM) software has lagged due to high barriers of entry.

“Due to remote and hybrid working, PAM is becoming increasingly critical. At the same time, the definition of a ‘privileged user’ needs to widen to address a broader range of employees – especially in small businesses, where access rights may be more pervasive,” Guccione explained in a related press release.

However, according to Keeper Security, new solutions are now available that are easier to use for smaller companies with fewer IT resources.

Keeper offers zero-trust cybersecurity offerings for managing privileges, passwords and the like.

Guccione noted that a lack of strong PAM makes companies “low-hanging fruit” for cyberattack.

According to a Keeper report citing data from S&P Global Market Intelligence, the share of SMBs with PAM might be hovering around 43% — suggesting opportunities for channel partners.

Guccione said: “In order to bolster security, organisations should seek flexible, easy to use, cloud-based PAM solutions that are cost-effective and offer a full stack of infrastructure access management capabilities.”

Many breaches involve stolen or compromised credentials used to escalate privileges and move around the network.

The S&P Global Market Intelligence data also found that more than 75% of SMBs in its survey had already deployed other kinds of cybersecurity technologies for networks, email, endpoints or security information event management (SIEM).

Keeper Security cloud-native, zero-trust security software products include Password Manager, Privileges Manager, Secrets Manager and Connection Manager.
