Privileged Identity Management (PIM)

Privileged Identity Management (PIM), or privileged identity management, provides oversight of privileged user activity. This means that it allows you to manage, control and monitor access to your organization’s key resources hosted on the Azure platform, in Azure AD and other Microsoft services (e.g. Microsoft 365, or Intune).

What is privileged identity management?

Sensitive data and the systems that enable the business operations have their own administrators. These are users who have additional rights to this data. The wide range of authority allows them to properly manage the systems in the organization, but at the same time creates the risk of abuse and opens the door to potential leaks.

Controlling privileged accounts that have access to sensitive data, but also to key systems within the organization, is one way to minimize the risk of data loss and breaches. In order for control to be effective, a company should have a defined policy for accessing company data, which will in effect reduce internal risks and abuses arising from the granted privileges.

Privileged Identity Management is a service within Azure Active Directory that should be part of such a policy.

PIM allows you to protect your company’s confidential information or resources by limiting the number of people who have access to it.

Why use Privileged Identity Management?
