High-privilege access is one of the most sensitive aspects of IT. Administrative accounts have the ability to make sweeping and fundamental changes to IT systems on which the business may depend. When used in ways not intended, the impact of this capability can cause a wide spectrum of damage, from security threats and compliance violations, to incidents that tarnish the reputation of the business itself.

For these reasons and more, privileged access visibility and control has been recommended -- and often required:

• By a variety of regulatory mandates
• To assure responsible governance
• To improve security

Privilege management delivers these values -- and more. In this report, Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) examines the ways in which privilege visibility and control not only helps organizations achieve these objectives, but also delivers a benefit that many may not realize: improved IT reliability that can help reduce operational costs. The characteristics of an effective solution are examined, along with evidence from EMA research that supports the values of a more consistent approach to operational IT control.
