Privilege Manager’s toolset is two-fold. First, Local Security discovers all accounts that exist on endpoints and allows Privilege Manager Administrators to control the exact membership of every local group. This will ensure the correct admin and root accounts are permanently set. Additionally, credentials will be controlled by enforcing password rotation on those accounts.
Second, Application Control allows Privilege Manager administrators to manage application activity on endpoint machines. Applications that require admin rights or root access can be automatically elevated, allowed applications are allow listed, and malicious applications are blocked.
