PowerBroker for Networks

Network Device Security & Privilege Management

Control what commands users can run, record sessions and provide a complete audit trail of user activity on network devices.

Protect Your Most Critical Network Devices with Comprehensive Privilege and Session Management

Devices like routers and switches are critical to the security of every network. But when left unprotected, they are also an open invitation for external attackers to walk right into your organization or for malicious insiders to gain unwanted access. To prevent costly cyber attacks, every device on your network has to be controlled at a granular level, and monitored with detailed audits. However, traditional agent-based tools can’t be installed on all of their devices, leaving many of them open to compromise or attack. And while managing a password is a great first step, there is no way to manage the privileges of accounts whose passwords are under control. Even with a password management solution, when an account is checked out the user gets all the privileges that come with it.

PowerBroker for Networks is a privilege management solution that secures and monitors activity on network devices, enabling organizations of all sizes to reduce cybersecurity risks and achieve privilege management at scale.

Reduce Security Risks to Network Devices

Flexible policy language: Highly granular policy language ensures superior control over all commands entered, as opposed to what simple blacklisting offers.

Data-driven policy: Make decisions to accept/reject/alter commands based on external data sources, such as databases or LDAP query.

Command alteration: Manipulate all, or part, of a command that gets sent to the target device.

Whitelist/blacklist capability: Default behavior of accepting commands or rejecting commands allows PowerBroker to run in either a blacklist or whitelist mode.

Customize end user messaging: Prompt users, detect logins, offer a message of the day, or send warnings or one-time messages to users based on commands.

Reduce Complexity

Drive automation at scale: PowerBroker automates repetitive tasks across one or hundreds of thousands of devices, including actions at logon.

Identity-aware automation intelligence: PowerBroker’ context-aware policy leverages identity and device profiles to enable users to type a single command to execute any number of other commands, improving efficiency.

Privilege policy linking and version control: PowerBroker policies can be linked and coordinated via version control, enabling simplified organization and management for even the largest deployments.

REST Interface: PowerBroker offers a HTTP-based API to administer policies via web services, making PowerBroker the right choice for on-premise and cloud-based deployments.

Intelligent session automation: PowerBroker automatically completes commands and entire lines, driving efficiency into once manual and error prone processes.

Reducing Risks with PowerBroker for Networks

1 Provide Complete Privilege Control and Auditing Over All Endpoints

PowerBroker for Networks is the first solution to offer granular command control and audit over privileged user activity on network devices, adding this capability to the PowerBroker PAM platform and providing coverage over all endpoints.

2 Control What Privileged Users Can Access and What They Can Do Once Logged on to a Device

By integrated with leading privileged password management solutions such as PowerBroker Password Safe, organizations can control the credentials that access a network device, and what commands can be run when a session is initiated. This provides complete control and audit of both commands and sessions.

3 Provide Platform-Agnostic Network Security and Auditing to Clients

For MSP partners that are responsible for the management and compliance of their customers’ network devices (i.e. Cisco, Palo Alto, etc.), PowerBroker for Networks provides a platform-agnostic way to improve network devices security and auditing.
