Privileged Access Management
Server Privilege Management for Windows, Unix & Linux
Control administrator / root, reduce risk, and achieve compliance on Windows, Unix and Linux servers.
An Integrated Approach to Server Privilege Management for Windows, Unix and Linux
Lack of control over root or admin passwords, super-user status, or elevated privileges could lead to a damaging breach or audit violation. Although least-privilege enforcement on tier-1 Windows, Unix and Linux servers is critical, IT leaders are usually unable to control what users can do after authenticating into a server. Traditional solutions are not integrated, requiring a password storage tool to manage access and a separate sudo or least-privilege delegation tool for policy enforcement. This approach is inefficient, complex and expensive – plus it lacks behavioral analysis to identify security anomalies. Only BeyondTrust delivers a truly integrated approach to server privilege management.
PowerBroker Server Privilege Management enables IT organizations to define who can access Unix, Linux and Windows servers – and what they can do with that access – via fine-grained policy control. Delivered as an integrated solution, PowerBroker enables organizations to improve server security while simplifying privileged access management deployments and reducing costs.
Control and Audit User Activity
Reduce attack surfaces by combining privileged user auditing with onboard password storage and management. When a user checks out a password to invoke a command, fine-grained policy controls limit the security exposure.
Bridge Unix & Linux to Active Directory
Manage heterogeneous server environments by bridging Unix and Linux systems into Active Directory for simplified authentication and greater visibility over user activity.
Reveal Privileged Application and Asset Security
Leverage vulnerability data from Retina and other solutions for a complete picture of privileged application and asset security. No assets are left unprotected, and privilege decisions are made with asset security in mind.
Understand Password, User and Account Behavior
Analyze privileged password, user and account behavior – and assign event Threat Levels based on the user, asset, and application launched. This makes it easier to uncover emerging risks, pinpoint and report on at-risk systems, and take action to proactively eliminate the threat.
Simplify Deployments with a Single Platform
Centrally control server privilege access management policies and deployment, and report to multiple stakeholders. PowerBroker simplifies deployments, helps to control costs, and provides a foundation to reduce the evolving risks of privileged access.
Integrated Platform Capabilities
Reducing Insider Risks with PowerBroker Server Privilege Management
1 Limit Functional Accounts
Any user account, even one with extremely limited rights on the target system, can be granted the privileges via a simple policy. This reduces the attack surface of a server, increasing security and tightening compliance.
2 Fine-Grained Control Over Stored Credentials
Agents enforce centralized policy, increasing control while enabling auditing of all privileged account activity. The credential with the least amount of rights possible can be stored by default, while one-off, custom, and edge-case commands can be run at any privilege level.
3 Simplify Directory Management
Included Active Directory bridging capabilities enable Unix, Linux and Mac hosts to join Active Directory. That, plus the solution’s onboard password management capabilities, enables administrators to simplify directory management by focusing on a single account for each user.
