An extended view of the Privileged Access Management feature in Office 365

Every now and then, there comes a feature that promises to forever change the security landscape of the service. Privileged Access Management, or PAM, is one such feature, designed to allow customers to enforce the principle of Zero Standing Access in Office 365.

The feature is built on the same technology Microsoft has used for year in order to run operations in their datacenters. It combines Just In-Time Access (JIT), Just Enough Administration (JEA), Approval workflow and robust Auditing to enable admins to still perform their tasks, while having zero users with standing access to highly privileged roles overall.

Sounds interesting, right? Go check the full two-part review over at the Practical365 site. Here are the links:
