System overview

Fudo PAM is a complete solution for managing remote privileged access. Fudo PAM comprises four modules each dedicated to different aspects of remote access management:


PSM module enables facilitating constant monitoring of remote access sessions to IT infrastructure. Fudo PAM acts as a proxy between users and monitored servers and it registers users’ actions, including mouse pointer moves, keystrokes and transferred files.


The PSM module records complete network traffic along with meta data, enabling precise session playback and full-text content search.

Fudo PAM enables viewing current connections and intervening in a monitored session in case the administrator notices a potential misuse of access rights.
