It’s no revelation that almost every organization today uses some form of remote access for third parties, vendors, and remote workers. The problem with this is that some common modes for extending remote access open your organization up to manifold cybersecurity risks. In fact, if you examine the data, almost every major data breach over the past several years has involved some manner of unauthorized remote access. VPNs present problems for securing remote access. VPNs act as both a front door and backdoor to your critical data and applications. As such, VPNs attract considerable attention from hackers because they can be used to gain unauthorized access to your systems. Replacing VPN access with a PAM solution will enable your organization to configure access granularly instead of an “all or nothing” VPN.
