Removing admin rights and enforcing least privilege are best practices that apply across all IT environments, whether Windows, macOs, Unix, Linux, on-premise, or cloud. In fact, from 2015 to 2020, simply removing administrative privileges could have mitigated 75% of all Critical Microsoft vulnerabilities [Microsoft Vulnerabilities Report 2023].
Endpoint Privilege Management—sometimes referred to as privilege elevation and delegation management (PEDM)—enables users to work productively without admin rights. This security technology combines privilege management and application control in a single agent, making admin rights removal simple and scalable across desktops and servers.
The BeyondTrust Endpoint Privilege Management solution enables organizations to meet least privilege and identity and access security best practices by removing user admin privileges and whitelisting trusted applications. The solution controls users and shadow IT, while preventing unauthorized system and software changes. This means our customers can reduce the attack surface and dismantle threats—without hindering user productivity.
"BeyondTrust Endpoint Privilege Management is a comprehensive tool that is also far better than alternative solutions we assessed in terms of implementation and professional support. Competitor solutions were bulky and had difficult processes to set up and apply. BeyondTrust Endpoint Privilege Management seamlessly integrated with our internal process and created an exceptional outcome. "
