Privileged Access Workstations (PAWs): How to Prevent Attackers from Sensitive Accounts and Tasks
Privileged Access Workstations (PAWs) provide a dedicated operating system for sensitive tasks that is protected from Internet attacks and threat vectors. Separating these sensitive tasks and accounts from the daily use workstations and devices provides very strong protection from phishing attacks, application and OS vulnerabilities, various impersonation attacks, and credential theft attacks such as keystroke logging, Pass-the-Hash, and Pass-The-Ticket.
Join Lex Thomas and John Rodriguez as they provide a detailed overview as well as deployment scenario considerations you should take with PAWs.
