Hitachi ID’s Privileged Access Manager (PAM) is positioned as delivering temporary elevation of privileges. This means that it does not perform the kind of create, update, and delete (CrUD) functions of a typical identity and access management platform.


  • A commercial advantage is that Hitachi ID authored its own activity monitoring component and includes it in the base product. This compares favorably with competitors that OEM third-party technology for this feature and charge extra for it, and whose customers may be concerned about support, especially if the third-party provider is acquired.
