You are not alone in your worry about the growing challenges of protecting the sensitive data and applications residing on your servers. The increasing value of data, progressively more stringent regulations, and the number of privileged users that need access to critical servers, devices, and applications all make it more difficult to protect sensitive information and intellectual property. The challenge of managing privileged users includes managing secure access to critical data and passwords associated with each privileged user.
CA Privileged Identity Manager operates at the system level to enable efficient and consistent enforcement across systems—including Windows, UNIX, Linux and virtualized environments. By distributing server security policies to endpoint devices, servers, and applications via an advanced policy management capability, you can control privileged users. Moreover, you can securely support auditing of each policy change and enforcement action in order to comply with global regulations. CA Privileged Identity Manager provides a holistic approach to access management as it includes key capabilities to protect and lock down critical data and applications, manage privileged identities, centralize UNIX authentication with Microsoft® Active Directory (AD) and provide a secure auditing and reporting infrastructure.
