VistaPrint Uses PowerBroker Desktops to Improve Security

Posted March 18, 2011    Peter McCalister

VistaPrint is an online supplier of high-quality graphic design services and customized print products. They have over seven million customers and operate 17 localized websites in over 120 countries. The company is known for their standardized design and printing process, as well as the significantly reduced costs for their customers. VistaPrint has Windows Active Directory installed, operates a customer service center, and 400 end-users running Windows XP.

Because of the number of key applications the company uses, a solution was required to elevate administrator privileges while keep the enterprise secure. That solution also needed to mitigate the effects of viruses and malware, as the online nature of the company makes the desktops running administrator rights vulnerable to attacks. BeyondTrust’s PowerBroker for Windows Desktops offers the right solution to correct these concerns and make the enterprise more secure.

PowerBroker for Windows Desktops allows VistaPrint to elevate privileges based on each individual employee’s job requirements. End-users don’t have to call the help desk to access local admin privileges for their computers or know administrative passwords. It also neutralizes malware and viruses, as only approved applications are authorized to be downloaded. By locking down the environment and tightening security while still providing end-users with the access needed to do their jobs, BeyondTrust PowerBroker for Desktops increases productivity.
