Iraje PAM Alerts manual version 8

Introduction

Iraje PAM provides Alerts which helps notifying the Super and Group admins and highlighting the users trying to do a specific activity on the devices or accessing the server outside PAM.

The functionality provides transparency to the super admins on identifying unauthorized access by users ensuring secure, authorized and controlled access to target systems. The solution minimizes the risk surface by providing deepest levels of granular control over data controllers and data processors.

Purpose

The purpose of Alert is to have preventive measures in PAM and to identify the cause for the incident. Admin Options are the most critical settings for Iraje PAM. Every feature in Iraje PAM Solution is enabled or disabled from here.
