Delegated Password Retrieval
BeyondTrust Privileged Identity provides a secure, web-based interface that makes it easy for IT staff, Help Desk personnel, and other users to quickly check out the current privileged passwords for the systems/ devices/ applications/ databases they are authorized to manage. Whenever your IT personnel need privileged access for emergency repairs, Privileged Identity grants the credentials immediately, according to predefined roles you have created.
You can configure the web application to allow users to view passwords or simply log them into the target system via RDP/SSH/Telnet without ever displaying the password. Delegated users can also view reports and access interactive dashboards that provide in-depth business intelligence regarding privileged user activity, system status and IT service issues.
Checked out passwords are randomized immediately after use, so no one retains long-term knowledge of password secrets and every request for access is attributed to an individual. Password checkouts also trigger an audit trail showing who used the password, when, and for what purpose. This information can be shared with auditors to verify compliance with security and regulatory compliance mandates.
