BeyondTrust has released version 6.2 of PowerBroker Password Safe, our solution for automating privileged password and privileged session management. This new release features some exciting enhancements – especially around session management and password management, giving users unmatched levels of security, accountability and control while continuing our commitment to usability and simplicity. Here are some highlights of new features:
Quickly Connect to RDP Sessions with DirectConnect (available January 2017)
Connecting to a webpage to request access to an RDP session is an unnecessary step for administrators that primarily work with desktop connection managers.
PowerBroker Password Safe version 6.2 introduces a new method of connecting to RDP sessions without having to log onto the Password Safe portal. Connection strings may be defined and saved as shortcuts on the desktop, or by using popular desktop connection managers such as Microsoft RDP Manager, or Devolutions Remote Desktop Manager.
Password Safe RDP DirectConnect allows sessions to be easily established via your existing desktop tools without having to initiate via a web interface.
Capture Every Action with RDP Enhanced Session Audit
Oftentimes, an RDP session can consist entirely of clicking on controls, with no keystrokes audited. When recording keystrokes alone, this leads to an audit deficit.
