Privileged accounts wield incredible power and are often sprawled across organizations. Once an attacker gains root, it’s game over. If your team relies on sudo and ad-hoc tools to manage privileges, you’re likely spending a ton of time and energy battling complexity – and with complexity comes risk.
There are easier ways to protect root accounts, enforce least privilege, and ensure compliance. Discover how by reading “Simplifying Unix & Linux Security” today.
