We have all seen the news. Least privilege attacks on the NSA and companies like Target have lead to elevated privileges on sensitive systems and access to confidential data. Securing administrative privileges on desktops and servers is beginning to take center stage for many organizations since low level entry points are now being used to access systems that are typically segmented. Securing administrative access on servers verses desktops, while conceptually the same, requires different philosophies in order to be successful.
