With Sectona PAM it is easy to access an asset. You can access a target asset using any of the following methods:

Taking session via Sectona Web Console

After you have logged in to Sectona PAM web console with your username and password, you will have to choose the Instance that you wish to access target assets from. For example, an XYZ parent organization may have subsidiaries such as ABC & DEF. You may either belong to XYZ or ABC or DEF or you may be authorized to work on only target assets from either of XYZ, ABC or DEF or all three. The Instance option will help you select and work only on target assets of any particular instance as required. Based on the default configuration as defined by your organization's Sectona PAM administrator, you may be assigned a default instance. However, if you wish to access target assets from another instance, you will have to select the respective instance from the drop-down list.
You will see a list of Assets and the corresponding Accounts. These are the Accounts that you have been granted access to. You may access your target Assets from this list.

  • Assets are target systems such as Windows Server, Unix Server, Databases and Network Devices.

  • Accounts are privileged IDs corresponding to the target assets.

Taking session via Sectona Client

After you have logged in to the Sectona PAM solution through Sectona client with your username and password, you will have to choose the Instance that you wish to access target assets from. For example, an XYZ parent organization may have subsidiaries such as ABC & DEF. You may either belong to XYZ or ABC or DEF or you may be authorized to work on only target assets from either of XYZ, ABC or DEF or all three. The Instance option will help you select and work only on target assets of any particular instance as is required. Based on the default configuration as defined by your organization's Sectona PAM administrator, you may be assigned a default instance. However, if you wish to access target assets from another instance, you will have to select the respective instance from the drop-down list.

In addition, you will be able to view the list of all the assets which you can get access to.

Unlike web console access, there is no account view in the Sectona client. The purpose of the Sectona client is to access target assets directly and enable tabbed browsing.

Over the browser, you will not require a Sectona Client but other types of access will require a Sectona Client application to access Sectona PAM.
