Privileged access for vendors requires more than typical PAM

While traditional privileged access management (PAM) solutions provide robust capabilities for securing privileged access and sessions, they revolve around knowing and managing the identity of individual users within your directory service. This works great for managing employees or permanent contractors, but introduces security and efficiency challenges when trying to manage transient and often unknown vendor users who may need to access a privileged application or session to provide routine maintenance or support.
