    Session Title: Six myths of PAM: busted!

    Session Synopsis:

    Myths. Curious things, aren’t they? Widely held, false beliefs that gain momentum over time can prevent organizations from making the best strategic choices. As a leader in the Privileged Access Management (PAM) market, BeyondTrust has encountered several myths that, like unicorns or the Loch Ness Monster, persist in people’s minds but don’t align with reality.

    In this revealing presentation, you’ll learn:

    • How six widely held beliefs about PAM are in fact wrong
    • What the truth is behind each myth and how to sort fact from fiction
    • Why the typical IT environment is a hacker’s play ground
    • Where the current threat landscape is heading and how to prepare

    We may not be able to direct you to the lost city of Atlantis but join us to learn some truths about bolstering your security strategy and the role of PAM in preventing data breaches.

    We will also share how the BeyondTrust platform enables absolute control over every privilege in your environment to drastically reduce your attack surface and windows of exposure, while boosting business productivity.
