Overview:

IT organizations often provide multiple server administrators — and sometimes users — with root passwords, super-user status, or other elevated privileges so that they can be productive and do their jobs. Unfortunately, this practice presents significant security risks stemming from intentional, accidental or indirect misuse of those privileges. Traditional solutions to this problem are either inefficient and incomplete (e.g., native OS options) or not secure enough (e.g., sudo).

Recent data breaches exploiting privileged credentials, as well as continued auditing requirements, necessitate privilege reduction whenever possible. So how do IT organizations limit root account access, ensure accountability, and reduce risk without hindering productivity?

Control and Audit Unix & Linux User Activity

PowerBroker for Unix & Linux allows system administrators to delegate Unix and Linux privileges and authorization without disclosing passwords for root or other accounts. The solution can also record all privileged sessions for audits, including keystroke information. Use PowerBroker to meet the privileged access control requirements of government and industry mandates including SOX, HIPAA, PCI DSS, GLBA, PCI, FDCC and FISMA.

  • Enable users to perform specified administrative tasks without requiring root privileges
  • Integrate all policies, roles and log data via a web-based console
  • Automate workflows for policies and audit-ready logging
  • Broker permissions transparently, ensuring user productivity and compliance
  • Record and index all sessions for quick discovery during audits
  • Leverage across more than 100 flavors of Unix and Linux

Need help easing the pain of managing sudo? Check out PowerBroker for Sudo, which provides centralized policy, logging and version control with change management for multiple sudoers files.

The BeyondInsight Platform for Unified Asset and User Risk Intelligence

PowerBroker for Unix & Linux is part of the BeyondInsight IT Risk Management Platform, which unifies PowerBroker privileged account management solutions with Retina CS Enterprise Vulnerability Management. Capabilities include:

  • Centralized solution management and control via common dashboards
  • Asset discovery, profiling and grouping
  • Reporting and analytics
  • Workflow and ticketing
  • y Data sharing between Retina and PowerBroker solutions

The result is a fusion of user and asset intelligence that allows IT and security teams to collectively reduce risk across complex environments.

Flexible Deployment Options

BeyondTrust solutions can be deployed on premise via software or hardware appliance, or hosted in the cloud through services including Amazon Web Services and others.

Features and Benefits:

Compliant

  • System-level control and audit: Provides control over applications down to the system level, regardless of how the application is initiated.
  • Segregation of duties: Centralized control allows for true separation of duties, limiting users, administrators and auditors access to only the data relevant to them.
  • Flexible authentication and authorization: Pluggable Authentication Module (PAM) support enables PowerBroker for Unix & Linux to utilize industry-standard authentication systems.
  • Track and record activity: Time-stamped logs for every administrative, user-level, and application activity ensures that no suspicious activity goes unnoticed. DVR-style recording and indexing ensures all activity is available for quick discovery and playback.

Efficient

  • Granular delegation of privileged accounts: Partitions privileged accounts such as root, granting users and admins access to only the specific entitlements required to perform a given task, achieving a least-privilege model.
  • Centralized administration and auditing: Greatly reduces the administration and overhead normally associated with policies and audit tasks.
  • Flexible policy language: Determines who can do what, where, when, and why providing granular options to the administrator.
  • Extensive platform support: Supports more than 100 flavors of Unix and Linux.
  • User management: Granularly controls user access to programs, files, and directories as well as brokering system tasks, without sudo.

Secure

  • Secure logging: Centralized log data facilitates controlled access to session activity information.
  • Encrypted: Supports 30 encryption methods for policies, logs, and network traffic, assuring compatibility within virtually any IT infrastructure. Ensures all user and admin activity are encrypted to selectable, industry-standard algorithms and stored in a secure, centralized location.

Use Cases:

Reducing Insider Risks with PowerBroker for Unix & Linux Servers

  1. Remove the need to login as root
    PowerBroker for Unix & Linux implements a true least privilege delegation model, allowing users to run any command at a higher privilege level so long as allowed by the centralized policy. Removing the need for users to logon as root allows the root user account to have much tighter security controls or be moved to a password management system such as PowerBroker Password Safe.

  2. Achieve compliance for root
    PowerBroker for Unix & Linux allows standard named user accounts to elevate to a root level with full session logging, providing a centralized indelible audit trail and ultimate accountability for each individual system administrator.

  3. Make up for Sudo's shortfalls
    PowerBroker for Sudo provides a way to quickly and simply centralize one or more sudoers files. Connecting hosts can be optionally grouped or run in a hybrid of one to one plus grouped hosts, allowing simple and controlled access to specific sudoers files located on one or more centralized servers based on the requesting hosts group membership.

  4. Seamlessly integrate with password management
    PowerBroker for Unix & Linux integrates seamlessly with PowerBroker Password Safe. This allows you to control both what users can access and what they can do once they have access.
