Netwrix SbPAM 3.5 now covers new devices and web interfaces

Steve Dickson of Netwrix

London, UK, 30 November 2021 – Netwrix, a cybersecurity vendor that makes data security easy, announced the release of Netwrix SbPAM 3.5. This solution simplifies how customers secure, control, manage and monitor privilege usage by eliminating standing privileged accounts. The newest version offers support for more platforms as well as a bevy of additional features.

With the key new capabilities in Netwrix SbPAM 3.5, organisations can:

  • Protect their cloud environment by eliminating standing privileged accounts in Azure AD, thereby improving control over admin activity and reducing administrative burden
  • Reduce network attack surface with on-demand privileged accounts for Cisco devices, which minimise the risk of privilege abuse and enable easier management of privilege
  • Secure critical data that resides in AD-integrated web applications and take control of shared access to web resources
  • Minimise security and business risks by removing superusers and instead with providing task-based, temporary privileged access for Linux

Other enhancements enable organisations to:

  • Disable remote desktop protocol (RDP) after each admin session to block ransomware and other cyberattacks and avoid unauthorised RDP connections
  • Detect security threats resulting from changes to critical files during privileged sessions to strengthen threat detection and investigation and minimise the chance of business disruptions 
  • Detect threats, streamline investigations, and prove compliance by sending logs of privileged activity to SIEM solutions

“Netwrix SbPAM is so simple to install and get running that we could not have solved our privileged account management problem without it. 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,” says Craig Larsen, information systems administrator at Eastern Carver County Schools.

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

Netwrix SbPAM enables organisations to minimise their attack surface by eliminating standing privileged accounts. By granting admins just enough privilege to complete a given task and removing that privilege immediately afterwards, organisations can dramatically reduce the risk of data breaches, business disruptions and compliance failures. Plus, easy deployment and implementation means faster time to value than traditional solutions. Customers can even keep using their current tools, such as Remote Desktop Connection Manager or a password vault, but make them more secure by integrating them with Netwrix SbPAM.
