But another dominant trend has been the range of sectors that are embracing PAM in large part because of the increasingly vast number of devices they must manage.
"When we're looking at the OT [operational technology] sector, when we're looking at power, water, manufacturing, these are all solutions that we never even thought about before needing this," Burst says. "But with the internet of things coming on, with everything being interconnected, we're seeing more and more wanting the control" that PAM provides.
In a video interview at the recent Infosecurity Europe conference, Burst discusses:
- Key business challenges being faced by his customers;
- Best practices for outsourcing PAM projects;
- The importance of securing critical assets.
Burst is a cybersecurity engineer at Wallix, a European specialist in privileged account governance.
