The 2019 Microsoft Vulnerabilities Report compiles every Microsoft security bulletin from the past 12 months, analyzes the trends, and includes viewpoints from security experts. We analyze vulnerabilities in:
This annual report finds that of the 189 Critical vulnerabilities reported in 2019, 81% would be mitigated by removing local admin rights from users. That's a compelling case for enforcing least privilege.
So why are so many organizations hesitant to implement a full scale least privilege policy and remove local admin rights from users?
The tension between security and productivity is often the barrier that prevents organizations from removing local admin rights from all users.
To address this challenge, BeyondTrust has developed privilege management solutions can be deployed to dynamically exert granular control over access to applications, tasks, and scripts in a way that makes this balance seamless and the security invisible to the end user.
Elevate access for applications without elevating the user’s actual privileges. This ensures that users are productive and protected.
