PAM Market Definition
Privileged Access Management (PAM) is a system that governs and manages privileged accounts and credentials by assigning elevated permission levels to accounts accessing critical resources and admin-level controls. Based on the principle of least privilege, PAM ensures that users, programs, or processes have only the minimum required permissions to perform their tasks while isolating and monitoring user actions. This framework aids businesses in controlling and tracking who is granted what level of administrative access to specific endpoints.
