Topic: Why Most PAM Implementations Fail

Topic Summary: 
PAM projects are often called the hardest projects in identity and access management (IAM) to rollout successfully.  Jason Gale, Solutions Architect at Remediant, will discuss common mistakes companies make, examine why most PAM implementations fail, discuss protecting passwords versus access, and examine issues with Active Directory complexity and scalability.  As the pioneers of JITA, we will explore why today’s threat landscape requires a new and different approach to PAM solutions, and the importance of Just-in-Time Administration and continuous monitoring/enforcement when it comes to finding and regulating administrator rights and access.

Presenter: Jason Gale

A passionate professional that loves to solve customer problems with durable technologies and creative thought.  Jason has a passion for graph databases, functional UI’s and hard to answer questions.
