Total number of reviews on IT Central Station
Number of followers on IT Central Station
The total ranking of a product, represented by the bar length, is based on a weighted aggregate score. The score is calculated as follows: The product with the highest count in each area gets the highest available score. (20 points for Reviews; 16 points for Views, Comparisons, and Followers.) Every other product gets assigned points based on its total in proportion to the #1 product in that area. For example, if a product has 80% of the number of reviews compared to the product with the most reviews then the product's score for reviews would be 20% (weighting factor) * 80% = 16. For Average Rating, the maximum score is 32 points awarded linearly based on our rating scale of 1-10. If a product has fewer than ten reviews, the point contribution for Average Rating is reduced (one-third reduction in points for products with 5-9 reviews; two-thirds reduction for products with fewer than five reviews). Reviews that are more than 24 months old, as well as those written by resellers, are completely excluded from the ranking algorithm.

What is Privileged Identity Management?

Privileged Identity Management (PIM) oversees requirements of critical, private accounts living in an enterprise’s IT infrastructure. It is alternatively called Privileged Access Management, Privileged Account Management or Privileged Session Management – collectively known as PxM. A privileged user is a person who can access the administrative backend of a critical system, delete data or change settings. PIM is essential to strong security.

The Privileged Identity Management process is normally used as a tool for information security, and IT Central Station users look for richness in the functionality provided for oversight. Enterprises must prevent unauthorized backend system access while always adhering to compliance. Privileged Identity Management safeguards aggressive data breaches and is intended to protect confidential data from the efforts of bad actors. PIM is constantly being updated to protect the security of the enterprise IT Central Station users are responsible for controlling shared frameworks and monitor authorized user access along with interim levels of permissions for privileged access within an enterprise.

IT and DevOps teams look for a number of categories necessary for Privileged Identity Management, sometimes referred to as a “PIM Solution.” Requirements include life cycle and provisioning management, authorization, authentication, password management, access controls and auditing. Operating system components such as routers, switches, and firewalls all come into question with Privileged Identity Management.

Functionality must meet risk management and compliance parameters. The goal is to protect, control and monitor operating systems, applications and the database. This can be achieved in part through session recording and session isolation to prevent unauthorized access, always a concern whether IT is talking about on-premises or cloud solution.

IT professionals are looking for easy to use GUI, availability of OOTB integration functionalities with other systems and availability of OOTB connectors to manage password and sessions of devices. High availability / failover to DR environment with no data loss should be provided and scalable components are key. Time is always a factor, so having the agility and ability to establish and manage simultaneous operating sessions to target devices is ideal. Ultimately, speed, coverage and security are the best ways to keep out the bad guys.
