Careful control of administrator rights in the very foundation of IT Security. Allowing admin rights exposes a dangerous security risk, creating an easy entry point for advanced persistent threats, zero-day attacks and sophisticated malware. By removing admin rights and managing privilege needs automatically, organizations can close this fundamental and overly exploited security loophole. Jason Forgione, Viewfinity Security Engineer, will outline a step-by-step phased approach to removing admin rights and managing privilege elevation needs automatically.
Best practices for making this transition as smooth as possible including identifying who, when, and where, admin rights are being utilized within the environment, the automatic detection of applications requiring elevated privileges, automatically creating aggregated policies to handle the majority of needs, and handling future needs/exceptions, as well as management & compliance reporting. Following the presentation Jason will answer audience questions related to these transitions and best practices.
