WASHINGTON, Oct. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Thycotic, a provider of privileged account management (PAM) solutions for more than 7,500 organizations worldwide, today announced Privilege Manager for Windows, which provides organizations the strongest malware protection by enabling them to run only those applications that are both required and trustworthy, with the lowest possible privilege and access.
According to SANS Institute, 85 percent of reported breaches involve compromised endpoints, with the most common type of data compromised being privileged access credentials. Today, growing organizations must lockdown and secure these vulnerable endpoints, without interrupting the productivity of employees.
Privilege Manager for Windows allows IT admins to implement a wide array of policies and controls that best match their needs, such as Deny-First Whitelisting, Least Privilege Policy, Application Isolation, Endpoint Monitoring and Logging, and Application Self-Elevation. With a simple process of Policy Matching, Contextual Evaluation, and Applying Actions; Privilege Manager for Windows is an extremely flexible, powerful, and easy to use solution for protecting endpoints.
"Typically, attacks will try to compromise an endpoint, such as a user's laptop, in order to gain access to Privileged Accounts - which ultimately can provide a cybercriminal access to the core of a company's network that can have a detrimental effect on the business and its customers," said Ben Yoder, Product Manager at Thycotic. "With Privilege Manager for Windows, we are offering IT Admins the ability to dramatically improve their IT security with the easiest to use and manage software solution available on the market."
Combined with Secret Server v10.0 for Privileged Account Management, which is also being released in conjunction with Thycotic's Privilege Manager for Windows, Thycotic is able to provide comprehensive security, with its highly adoptable, easy to use, and simple to manage Endpoint and Privileged Access Security solution.
In addition to Thycotic's Privilege Manager for Windows, its latest Secret Server v10.0 solution offers significant new capabilities including:
- Extensible Discovery
- Ability for Admins to write SSH and PowerShell scripts to extend how Discovery finds accounts and devices.
- Makes Discovery extremely flexible and customizable
- Distributed Proxy
- Ability to Proxy SSH and RDP connections through the Distributed Engine service, rather than through Secret Server itself
- Engines can be deployed as jumping points into different network segments
- Service providers can deploy engines in customer or isolated networks to proxy
When purchasing Privilege Manager for Windows the installation process will install Secret Server v.10.0 and Privilege Manager together. Customers will also have the option to license and use Privilege Manager by itself.
