Delinea Introduces Privilege Control For Servers

Delinea has announced the introduction of Privilege Control for Servers on the Delinea Platform, enforcing least privilege principles on critical systems consistently across identities to combat stolen credentials and restrict lateral movement. Delinea is changing how organisations enforce privilege as the new perimeter of security to reduce risk, more easily meet compliance, and improve productivity on a single unified cloud-native platform.

Prevent lateral movement to contain cyber incidents

As part of the Delinea Platform, which provides seamless and easy-to-deploy PAM, Privilege Control for Servers centrally elevates privileges on Active Directory identities as needed to limit standing privileges, enforcing least privilege best practices. Customers can limit shared credential sprawl & manage privileged access to Windows, Linux, and Unix servers in hybrid cloud environments, which are enforced on the machine, limiting lateral movement. Customers can enforce Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) at vault log-in, credential access, server log-in, and privilege elevation using MFA at depth, providing identity assurance to mitigate the risk of compromised credentials or identities and meet increasing regulatory and cyber insurance requirements.

For remote workers and vendors, VPN-less and agentless privileged remote access provides a secure means of accessing critical resources and data, whether using a vaulted credential or an Active Directory identity, without ever seeing or entering a credential. Privileged activities are consistently authorised based on policies, and remote sessions are recorded and audited.

In Privilege Control for Servers, session recording and auditing occur on the host, so data cannot be altered. As a shared capability, session, and audit data is unified and saved in the Delinea Platform, simplifying storage and access while taking advantage of Delinea’s innovative AI-driven auditing (now in public preview) to dramatically reduce the time to identify potentially dangerous activities without manually reviewing hours of session recordings.

“Threats like ransomware continue to evolve, and organisations need to reduce the risk of stolen credentials and lateral movement drastically. As identities and environments become more complex, privilege is the new perimeter of security,” said Phil Calvin, Chief Product Officer at Delinea. “The introduction of Privilege Control for Servers adds even more robust authorisation to the Delinea Platform, the first cloud-native unified PAM platform that is more secure, resilient, and scalable than other solutions.”

Enforcing privilege as the new perimeter with the first unified cloud-native PAM platform 

Privilege is the new perimeter of security for modern enterprises. Privilege Control for Servers provides deeper and more robust privilege protection as part of the Delinea Platform. Customers can layer security defences on privileged activities with Secret Server for shared credentials, privileged remote access, and privilege controls to more effectively prevent credential theft and the ability to access critical data and infrastructure.

Privilege Control for Servers sets the direction for enforcing just-in-time and just enough privileges through the Delinea Platform. As solutions are added to the platform, they will adopt this naming convention (Privilege Control for [Use Case]) to help customers easily identify the solutions required to meet their unique Privileged Access Management and identity security requirements.
