CETREL S.A. Replaces SUDO with PowerBroker for Servers

Posted March 24, 2011    Peter McCalister

<![CDATA[

CETREL S.A., an advanced electronic payment company, is headquartered in Masbach, Luxemberg. It’s active in three lines of business: business process outsourcer for cards, acquirer for multi-domestic and international merchants, and provider of share service center solutions for the financial industry. The company is also a member of the SIX group, and is working towards becoming an elite player in the international issuing and acquiring card business.

For the past several years, the CETREL security team had been using sudo to manage their critical Unix/Linux assets. At first, sudo seemed to manage the CETREL IT environment well. After a while, however, productivity was hindered, as reviewing and configuring sudo logs require accessing every server individually. It became increasingly important to find a simpler and more secure method to manage the access and accountability of generic users, in addition to finding a solution to offer direct support for auditing and compliance problems.
