Privileged User Security

Do you have control over every user?

Every organization has standard user accounts and privileged user accounts; the latter are administrative, service, or application accounts. These ‘privileged’ accounts are authorized and therefore trusted by the organization to perform certain security-relevant functions.

They have access to a wide array of sensitive information and valuable assets across multiple departments, which makes them the ideal target for cyberattacks. In fact, over 50% of data breaches are caused by the misuse of privileged accounts (BeyondTrust, 2019).

Your benefits and how we can help you out

  • A hardened environment that protects against internal and external threats: limiting privileges means access can be managed better
  • Reduced malware infection and propagation: removing excessive privileges can prevent malware from installing or executing
  • Enhanced operational performance
  • Easier to achieve and prove compliance
  • Credentials are secure and controlled
  • Separation of responsibilities
  • Behavioral monitoring
  • Good balance between ease of use and security
How we help

Our Privileged User Security is a method to help secure, control, and monitor privileged access to critical assets.

It creates a highly secured and tightly controlled environment to store privileged credentials, so every user that accesses sensitive information will be controlled, monitored, and, if needed, isolated.

This way, the risk of those credentials being stolen will be reduced and any suspicious activity can be discovered and mitigated.

What kind of Managed Security Services do we offer for Privileged User Security?

We use the risk data to define your business’ IT security needs. Although every company is different, many organizations face similar business risks. Our standard services help eliminate up to 80% of your risks.

  • If you want to eliminate even more risks, we provide you with our expertise to design ‘scenario-based use cases’ to reduce every information security risk to an acceptable level. Based on your needs, risks, and the current landscape we can provide you with the desired managed SOC services. However, this is not a one-way street; these services require dedication and motivation from both ends.
  • Every service comes with a core team of experts consisting of service delivery, security experts, security analysts, and others, supported by Kahuna management to maintain high-quality service as long as your MSSP contract is with us.
  • The end result is a service that’s tailored to your business with reporting that meets the needs of whoever receives it – whether strategic, tactical, or operational. Our SOC service is flexible and scalable every month, meaning you only pay for what you use.
