Microsoft privileged access management (PAM) is a security system that helps organizations control access to sensitive data and systems. PAM provides a way to give privileged users (such as administrators) the access they need while preventing other users from gaining access to those same resources.
PAM can be used to control access to on-premises data and systems, as well as cloud resources. In on-premises environments, PAM can help organizations control access to systems and data stored in Active Directory. In cloud environments, PAM can be used to control access to Azure resources.
PAM is an important part of an organization's overall security strategy. By ensuring that only authorized users have access to sensitive data and systems, PAM can help reduce the risk of data breaches and other security incidents.
