PowerBroker for Windows
PowerBroker for Windows is the fastest, easiest and most cost-effective way to secure Microsoft Windows through the implementation of “least privilege”. Reduce help desk burdens and costs, while increasing the security of your Windows-based assets.
Your Windows Assets Don’t Have to Be an Attacker's
PowerBroker for Windows helps organizations significantly improve their desktop security by making it easy to remove administrator privileges from users without impacting productivity. Removing these privileges drastically reduces the attack surface available to malicious users – both internal and external – and malware.
With its powerful automation engine, PowerBroker for Windows lets organizations easily implement security best practices with no impact on end-user productivity. By selectively elevating privileges for applications, software installs, system tasks, scripts, control panel applets and more – reducing help desk burdens and costs while increasing security.
In addition, with PowerBroker for Windows, you can get complete visibility into user activity with Session Monitoring and total control of user privilege down to the file system level with File Integrity Monitoring. These optional add on modules can provide a complete context aware security profile of user activity on an asset.
“PowerBroker for Windows is the perfect solution for our IT needs. No longer are we required to ‘punch holes’ in our security in order to complete certain tasks.”Ian Short, Applications Infrastructure Manager,
University of Winchester
