Comprehensive Unix & Linux Privilege and Session Management to Protect Your Most Critical Systems

It’s no secret that Unix and Linux systems present high-value targets for external attackers and malicious insiders alike. You can expect to be breached if you share credentials, provide unfettered root access, or let files and sessions go unmonitored. Gaining root or other privileged credentials makes it easy for attackers to fly under the radar and access sensitive systems and data. And the risk only increases as attack surfaces expand, perimeters vanish, attackers get smarter, and compliance pressures mount.

BeyondTrust Privilege Management for Unix & Linux is an enterprise-class, gold-standard privilege management solution that helps security and IT organizations achieve compliance, control privileged access, and prevent and contain breaches that can effect Unix and Linux systems.

With over 30 years of experience in server privilege management, BeyondTrust knows what it takes to protect your critical, tier-1 systems, and help you reduce risk and achieve compliance.

Reducing Insider Risks with BeyondTrust for Unix & Linux Servers

Remove the Need to Login as Root

BeyondTrust for Unix & Linux implements a true least privilege delegation model, allowing users to run any command at a higher privilege level so long as allowed by the centralized policy. Removing the need for users to logon as root allows the root user account to have much tighter security controls or be moved to a password management system such as BeyondTrust Password Safe.

Achieve Compliance for Root

BeyondTrust for Unix & Linux allows standard named user accounts to elevate to a root level with full session logging, providing a centralized indelible audit trail and ultimate accountability for each individual system administrator.

Make up for Sudo's Shortfalls

BeyondTrust for Unix and Linux Sudo Edition provides a way to quickly and simply centralize one or more sudoers files. Connecting hosts can be optionally grouped or run in a hybrid of one to one plus grouped hosts, allowing simple and controlled access to specific sudoers files located on one or more centralized servers based on the requesting hosts group membership.

Seamlessly Integrate with Password Management

BeyondTrust for Unix & Linux integrates seamlessly with BeyondTrust Password Safe. This allows you to control both what users can access and what they can do once they have access.
