Least Privilege on Windows Desktops and Servers

Posted February 13, 2014    Morey Haber

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. BeyondTrust has prepared a white paper that describes this process and a short video to highlight how these can be implemented within your organization. Please click here to download the white paper and watch the video below. I look forward to hearing about your experiences managing Windows desktops and servers with least privilege.
