Symark PowerBroker: Root Access Risk Control for the Enterprise
Source: Symark Software
Compliance efforts and security concerns have driven businesses to make substantial investments in threat control. Too often, however, these efforts pay far too little heed to the risks posed by poorly controlled access to administrative privilege in IT, which can have a hugely disproportionate impact on the business. Without putting more effective controls on high-privilege access such as Unix or Linux root account, enterprises not only expose the most business-critical IT assets to the most fundamental level of risk, they also expose trustworthy administrators to the consequences of privilege abuse by others. In this paper, EMA analysts examine Symark PowerBroker, a solution designed to close these gaps for the enterprise with provable control.
