As an HR Administrator or Manager, there are many protocols to consider when onboarding, off-boarding, and giving sensitive information to employees. Here, we explore how a privileged access management (PAM) system like Foxpass helps to better keep breaches from previous and current employees from happening.
Human resource teams constantly onboard and off-board new employees. But when employees leave a company, they take with them valuable information like account logins, wifi passwords, and portal/terminal entrances. According to Forbes, improper employee off-boarding can cause big cybersecurity risks such as data loss, compliance violations, breaks in confidentiality, data breach, ruined reputation, and wasted spends.
Our Cloud-Hosted LDAP is an employee directory that helps with onboarding and off-boarding employees by keeping their credentials and access permissions in a centralized location. This helps with keeping an organized account of who does and does not have privileges to prevent a high potential for security breaches.
There is an even higher risk with current employees to third-party cyber criminals who aim to break in through methods like malware. According to Security Intelligence, over 75% of security breach incidents come from insider threats. Teams must also think about managing access to those inside the business.
Cloud-Hosted Radius enables individual users to be assigned permissions. It gives power back to the administrators to give and take away the amount of access an employee may have to an account or device.
Another solution is Single Sign-On (SSO). This allows employees to automatically log in to all accounts through a single login. As an admin, you can also give and take away an employee’s login credentials via SSO after they are done with the account.
Conclusion: PAM as the end-all-be-all solution
PAM makes it easier for HR teams and lessens the worry of potential threats. Foxpass offers Cloud-Hosted LDAP & Radius and SSO, for your business to protect your information from anyone that once had exposure to your information.
