Windows Host Access Management With CA Access Control
Microsoft Windows is the most widely adopted server operating system on the market today. Driven by security concerns and regulatory compliance, organizations are under increasing pressure to protect the sensitive data and applications residing on their Windows servers. Using native tools like Active Directory and Group Policies, effectively combining security and IT management within a single framework, presents security concerns regarding separation of duties, as well as manageability and auditing. Additionally, many administrators share accounts, which are not managed by a central policy presenting separation of duties and audit reporting issues. This lack of a central policy also impacts the ability for administrators to manage diverse environments including Windows, LINUX and UNIX servers.
