Use Case

Here's an example risk compliance rule you can create with BeyondInsight configured with PowerBroker for Windows:

  1. Allow administrator privileges if the system contains any vulnerability that maps to PCI or HIPAA and is less than 30 days old.
  2. Allow standard user privileges and display a warning if the system contains any critical vulnerability less than 90 days old, regardless of regulation.
  3. Deny operations and alert operations and security staff if the system contains any critical vulnerability that is older than 90 days.

In all cases, BeyondInsight would provide real-time alerts of all vulnerabilities.
