Here's how to get great security for your team's shared accounts in just 15 minutes
Here's an empty Osirium Profile, ready to take our users and devices.
Here we add the users that would normally share the account. This are the people that currently know the password. Note that at this stage we shouldn't include any third parties. We'll cover third party access in the next 15 minute security fix.
Here we add the device, system or application of the shared account. Note that we can see which account is going to be used. We also need to add the tools that users can use, in this case its just a HTTPS browser, but for a windows system it could be RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol). At the end of this step all the users can now access the device through the shared account. BUT the users still know the password so they could bypass Osirium.
Now we change the password for the shared account. At this stage only you and Osirium know the password. However all the users in the profile can still access the device for normal work but since they don't know the password they cannot pass on the access to any third party. So to complete this stage you could store the new password in a safe. You'll be double pleased to know that Osirium has several breakglass mechanisms, one of which can create a neat PDF ready for physical storage.
You've made it! You're now on the path to Privileged Account Security
