Implementing Least Privilege Around the World with PowerBroker for Windows

Posted July 17, 2014    Morey Haber

BeyondTrust recognizes that international, multilingual businesses have unique operating challenges, especially when it comes to implementing enterprise software. PowerBroker for Windows is a least-privilege solution often deployed across thousands of systems spanning multiple geographies and protecting users of diverse backgrounds.

Earlier this year, PowerBroker for Windows introduces new data privacy features for EMEA and APAC, demonstrating our commitment to global customers. This month’s release of PowerBroker for Windows 6.6 builds upon this philosophy and by introducing automated client-side localization of end-user dialogs.

While PowerBroker for Windows is usually transparent to end users, enforcing least privilege and monitoring sessions, localization comes in handy when end-user interaction is required. For instance, when users need to justify requests for elevated application privileges, or when the solution displays one-time passcodes or access denials. In all cases, PowerBroker for Windows can be configured to automatically identify the end user’s language preference and display messages in any language supported by the Windows OS:

By default, the solution includes sample text for six languages and offers two methods for adding messages in other languages:

  1. Administrators can enter text directly into the user interface.
  2. The solution can import a spreadsheet of text, with languages specified in the columns and translations in the rows. This enables bulk import and hosting of languages when direct access to the solution for translation may not be possible.

As a result, end-user messages customized to the user’s language preference and delivered in standard PowerBroker for Windows dialog templates.

BeyondTrust is committed to helping our customers implement least-privilege best practices everywhere they operate, for all employees.
