Privileged Identity Management

Privileged Identity Management is frequently used as an information security and governance tool to help companies in meeting compliance regulations and to prevent internal data breaches through the use of privileged accounts. It is an area of Identity Management that focuses solely on privileged accounts, powerful accounts used by IT administrators, select business users and even some applications. It includes creating a new bastion Active Directory forest.
