Privileged credentials unlock gateways to an organization's most valuable assets--critical devices, IT systems, business applications, and sensitive customer data. According to Forrester Research, privileged credentials are implicated in at least 80% of breaches. Yet, most organizations have incomplete visibility, and even worse control, over the privileged credentials and associated accounts strewn across their increasingly complex enterprise.
Without visibility into privileged accounts, security teams cannot accurately assess risk. Increasingly, cyber insurers are also demanding that organizations have privileged access security controls in place to meet underwriting standards and qualify for coverage.
The first step in mitigating the risks associated with privileged credential use is to gain visibility of the privileged accounts in your network. Where are they? Who is using them? How do you make sure that they do not leave the organization, or get stolen by the bad guys?
A clear view of the extent and status of privileged accounts gives you a better understanding of the problem and helps you plan, budget, and deploy the best solution for your organization.
Uncover privileged accounts, credentials, and remote access tools
Privileged Access Discovery is a standalone, simple-to-use BeyondTrust utility that you can securely leverage to scan networks and systems to uncover privileged accounts, credentials, and remote access tools, as well as misconfigurations (i.e. user accounts with admin credentials, service accounts using user accounts for access, etc.) that can create risk.
Use Privileged Account Discovery to:
- Gain key information on the scope of your privileged accounts, including the number of credentials, password ages, service accounts, and users running with administrative rights
- Discover remote access tools used across your environment
- Generate a summary report that helps illuminate the magnitude of the privileged account security challenge on your network
Most importantly, the report and its data are available only to you. Passwords aren't recorded, and no sensitive data is retained by the utility. Here's an example of a summary report you can generate with the tool.
Privileged Access Discovery is ready to use immediately with unlimited usage - run the discovery tool periodically, or whenever your network changes.
You can reach out to BeyondTrust experts to further understand how to manage the risks identified by the report.
