How Privilege Guard Helps

Reduce Operational Risk

Due to the power that privileged accounts carry, it is necessary to either Eliminate Admin Rights or limit the actions of administrators when they are logged on to servers. Restricting the actions of an administrator not only helps achieve compliance with many regulatory mandates, but it also allows the tracking of any privileged changes to a server. Privilege Guard provides protection from deliberate or unintentional abuse of privileges.

Increased Security

Improve Security

Privilege Guard ensures administrators are only given admin rights over the applications they are responsible for managing. Implementing Least Privilege for system administrators will significantly improve server security, as privileged access is restricted and audited

Tracked Privileged Activity

Achieve Compliance

Meet internal and external compliance initiatives by ensuring all administrators log on with a standard user account. Privileged applications are configured through centrally managed policies and all privileged activity is audited. Privilege Guard’s application forensics provide valuable information if a breach of security is suspected.

Reduced Insider Thret

Reduced Insider Threat

The greater the number of privileged accounts, the greater the likelihood that one of these accounts may be used by a disgruntled employee in a malicious or inappropriate manner. Privilege Guard can eliminate many of these privileged accounts, and with its granular control and auditing, the exposure to this type of threat can be significantly reduced.

Prevent Unauthorized Changes

Reduce Operational Risk

Privilege Guard ensures that the likelihood of unauthorized or unwanted changes to a server are minimized by only giving each administrator privileged access to the applications and tasks required to perform their role. This least privileged approach is just as important on servers, as it is on desktops, and given the critical role of many servers, the benefits can be even greater.
