System overview

Wheel Fudo PAM is a complete solution for managing remote privileged access. It comprises four modules:

  • PSM (Privileged Sessions Management)
  • Secret Manager
  • AAPM (Application to Application Password Manager)
  • Efficiency Analyzer


PSM module enables facilitating constant monitoring of remote access sessions to IT infrastructure. Wheel 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.

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