Posted February 3, 2014    Sarah Lieber

When it comes to privileged account management the list of things an administrator can do to protect their environment is seemingly never ending. Last week we hosted a webinar with Oracle Linux and presented a list of 5 things every Linux administrator should, and should not, do when managing privileged accounts. Given the current security landscape and the threats we’ve discovered from breach reports, we see the management of privileged accounts as a critical business function of security. In the video below we cover the few tips in hopes to give you the best security return-on-investment for each dollar and hour you spend on implementation.

Led by Avi Miller, Product Manager, at Oracle and Paul Harper, Product Manager, at BeyondTrust, the webinar below covers the 5 Do’s and 5 Don’ts when it comes to privileged account management. Avi and Paul also covered specifically how you can protect privileged accounts within the Oracle Linux environment with BeyondTrust’s PowerBroker for Linux solution. Watch the webinar below. Enjoy!
