The proliferation of administrator accounts on end-users workstations and laptops or end-user accounts that have administrator rights is a major security risk. These accounts can be used by attackers to breach cyberdefences. Removing these rights is a common goal, but usually means an increased load for the IT Help Desk dealing with requests to install software or make configuration changes.
With Osirium Privileged Endpoint Management (PEM), IT can remove local administrator accounts and rights without increasing requests to the help desk. PEM runs in “learning” mode to identify which applications are run with elevated privileges. IT reviews the list and creates policies for approved applications. Users can continue using their apps as administrators even once enforcement more is enabled without having to contact the IT help desk.
Osirium Privileged Endpoint Management is a part of Osirium Privileged Access Security that also includes Osirium PAM (https://osirium.com/pam) for privileged access management, and Osirium Privileged Process Automation (PPA) (https://osirium.com/ppa) for automating complex IT and business processes securely and with human interaction as needed.
