BeyondTrust

InfoSec pros have their work cut out for them—with the need to secure an estimated 300 billion passwords by 2020. Privileged password management, in particular, is a pain point for almost every organization. Privileged credentials are often difficult to identify, challenging to tame and properly secure, and if done improperly, can be costly to manage. Without strong privileged password management processes and technology in place, your organization is ripe for all kinds of security breaches. In many industries, lack of the proper protections in place alone puts you at risk from legal and/or regulatory fallout.

Once you do this, your computer and your personal information are vulnerable.
