Version 6.0 of the PxM Platform made exciting additions to our Privileged Access Management and Privileged Task Management functionality. In particular, we introduced Session Termination, Improved AD Integration and the Mac OSX Client. Read on for more information on the improvements we made.
As the PxM Platform is proxy based, it sits in the connection chain from the users’ workstation to the device being managed. Unlike password vaults, it is always in control of the connection. The PxM Platform can record everything, as well as provide session shadowing, giving a real-time view of what is happening.
In release 6.0, we extended this user interface with the introduction of a session termination button. The session termination button provides an immediate termination of the connections between the PxM Client, PxM Platform and device/system/application. It also provides a one-click option to disable the user account, providing termination and lockout in just two clicks.
Improved AD Integration
Release 6.0 also updated the way in which the PxM Platform interacts with Active Directory. We know from customer visits that Active Directory implementations can get big and complex. To avoid over-complication, release 6.0 introduced a new method for Active Directory Group synchronisation.
The new functionality reads the user membership of defined groups and automatically enrolls these users into the PxM Platform. The synchronised groups can be used in Profiles which will automatically grant the appropriate role and task access.
Mac OSX Client
Though some of our customers have been using the native MacOSX PxM Client for some time, in release 6.0 it is now included in all kits.
As always, version 6.0 made various usability and performance updates. GDPR denotes that it helps not to hold data longer than necessary, so we’ve also exposed the file retention policy in the system configuration user interface.
We’re certainly enjoying the PxM Platform Version 6.0 on our production system.
