Big Brother May Be Watching Sooner Than You Think

I recently read an article talking about the US Government wanting to start monitoring regional internet traffic on a large scale as a way to predict human behavior. The article goes on to state this, “…could enable the prediction of economic crises, political unrest and revolutions…” Wow! Good luck with that.

The idea though, I thought was great. Use the data you have available to predict the future needs of the people. Well we at BeyondTrust thought this was a great idea years ago. Just take a look at the profiling and monitoring features in the PowerBroker Windows Desktops solution. With it you can see and easily respond to the barriers companies face when moving towards a Best Privilege model.

Robust Auditing and Reporting is an important component in any endeavor. Without it, how could you measure your kids’ performance in school, be on the same page with your boss at work, or even know if your car is due for an oil change? This is the reasoning behind further enhancements to PowerBroker Windows Desktops. If you haven’t checked it out, do yourself a solid and check it.

Keep an eye out for a future post on additional enhancements. Anything that makes people use words like, “Amazing” and “That is Awesome”, is worth a look.

Special thanks to Jason Silva for the find and contribution of this blog today as well.
