DEFINITION

Administrative Account

An administrative account is a user account with elevated privileges and permissions within a system or network. These accounts typically have access to sensitive resources, configurations, and administrative functions necessary for managing the system or network infrastructure. Due to their elevated privileges, administrative accounts are prime targets for attackers, and thus, they require strong security measures such as multi-factor authentication, regular auditing, and strict access controls to prevent unauthorised access and mitigate potential security risks.
