Netwrix SbPAM covers new devices

The latest release of SbPAM 3.5 from cybersecurity vendor Netwrix (https://www.netwrix.com) now covers Azure AD, Cisco network devices and web interfaces, and offers enhanced support for Linux, and continues to simplifies how customers secure, control, manage and monitor privilege usage by eliminating standing privileged accounts.

Featuring a range additional features which allow organizations to protect their cloud environments includes a reduce network attack surface with on-demand privileged accounts for Cisco devices to minimize the risk of privilege abuse and enable easier management of privilege; disable remote desktop protocol (RDP) after each admin session to block ransomware and other cyberattacks avoiding unauthorized RDP connections; and the detection of security threats resulting from changes to critical files during privileged sessions to strengthen threat detection and investigation and minimize the chance of business disruptions.

“Compromise or misuse of admin accounts remains one of the top causes of data breaches and business disruptions today.  Organizations, regardless of vertical or size, need to improve privileged access management to minimize these risks – but they are often concerned by the high cost and complexity of deployment,” says Steve Dickson, CEO, Netwrix.  “Netwrix SbPAM solves this dilemma.  It’s simple and efficient design helps organizations dramatically improve security, yet it is easy to implement and offers a remarkably fast time to value.”

“Netwrix SbPAM is so simple to install and get running that we could not have solved our privileged account management problem without it,” adds Craig Larsen, Information Systems Administrator at Eastern Carver County Schools.  “With Netwrix SbPAM we implemented privileged access management for our critical systems in days instead of months and it seamlessly integrated with our current systems and security controls.”
