The latest BeyondTrust annual report found that of the 196 Critical vulnerabilities reported in 2020, more than half 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? The tension between security and productivity is often the barrier that prevents the removal of local admin rights from all users.
To address this challenge, BeyondTrust offers industry leading Endpoint Privilege Management solutions that are easily deployed and dynamically exert granular control over access to applications, tasks, and scripts. By elevating access for applications without elevating the user’s actual privileges, the experience is seamless to end users and keeps them productive and protected.
