India, Sept. 14, 2023 — ManageEngine, the enterprise IT management division of Zoho Corporation, today announced that it has been named a Challenger in the 2023 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Privileged Access Management (PAM). A Gartner Magic Quadrant is a culmination of research in a specific market, providing consumers with a wide-angle view of the relative positions of the market’s competitors.
ManageEngine, which has been recognized in this Magic Quadrant report for the fourth time in five years, was assessed alongside 10 PAM vendors for its completeness of vision as well as its ability to execute.
“With identities and privileged accounts evolving as the new perimeter and economic headwinds driving efficiency-related security initiatives, IAM leaders need a comprehensive strategy to understand and manage all kinds of privileged access in their organizations while mitigating associated business and operational risks,” said Kumaravel Ramakrishnan, director of marketing at ManageEngine.
“PAM360 fits the philosophy of value-oriented IT management, helping enterprise security teams manage administrative privileges end to end. We believe that this recognition from Gartner is a testament to our continued commitment to building a unified PAM platform that will be a key cog in the IAM strategy of enterprises of any size,“ he added.
Recent product innovations in ManageEngine PAM360 include:
- Trust scores for users and endpoints, which offer real-time risk assessment to identify and preempt anomalous activities.
- Policy-based access controls, enable administrators to predefine a set of access policies and grant conditional access to mission-critical endpoints based on trust scores and other crucial parameters.
- Self-service privilege elevation for Linux environments, which enables administrative users to configure an allow-list of sensitive commands and let users execute those commands with elevated privileges.
