Privileged Access Management Architect

The Challenge:

Do you want to play an important role in the world of identity and access management and zero trust? The user is the last frontier for cybersecurity. It’s where the perimeter is drawn, and securing identities is pivotal in the fight against cybercriminals. As a privileged access management (PAM) architect, you’ll have the chance to build your skills and experience to keep hackers from taking data and breaking processes. We’re looking for someone like you to help our clients meet their mission without disruption.

In this role, you’ll support large-scale IAM projects for our clients developing and deploying IAM solutions to ensure information security aligns with organization security requirements and guidelines. You’ll analyze the identity lifecycle, articulating access requirements and defining enterprise identity records. You’ll build your experience with IAM to design, deploy, and support systems that verify appropriate user privileges and manage credentials for accessing our clients’ most valuable assets. From single sign-on to privileged access systems, you’ll implement enterprise-class solutions and help stop adversaries in their tracks. This position is a hybrid role with a combination of working at a Booz Allen office or client site and working remotely.
