Key security initiatives
Gati-KWE implemented a combination of Privilege Access Management (PAM) and Database Access Management (DAM) tools. The combination gave them complete solution to address business and security concerns. Password management of critical applications, database and servers became easy. Controlled and role-based restriction on command execution at server and database level was implemented. Sensitive command execution were monitored with auto alerts through email and SMS, and recording of commands. Copying sensitive data from server and database is controlled, and OTP-based dual authentication ensures critical servers are accessed by authorised users only. The solution facilitated complete audit trail logs to meet audit and compliance requirement, centralised repository of database inventory across enterprise, virtual critical patching without any downtime, and easy monitoring and reporting of deviations to the policies and access control.
