Privileged Session Management
Begin to take the doubt out of accountability
Often it is vital to know exactly what has been done to a system from where and by whom. Unusual behaviour or audit purposes are perfect reasons for this. Our PxM Platform’s Privileged Session Management (PSM) enables security managers to record, store and playback any activities that take place across their entire hybrid-cloud infrastructures.
As a result, Privileged Session Management not only ensures full user access accountability but also acts as a unique deterrent against SysAdmin malpractice. In conclusion, this provides irrefutable evidence of their privileged activities.

All SysAdmin sessions taking place upon the PxM Platform can be recorded. A visual capture allows a video playback of each session along with a thumbnail layout to evaluate sessions at a glance. Therefore, we use the native management tool already existing on their workstations so that no browsers plug-ins or tunnelling of protocols need be required to manage devices.
Every SysAdmin session taking place on the PxM Platform can be shadowed in real-time. Consequently ,this allows all admin sessions, including 3rd party service providers to be monitored as they happen.
In addition to recording a video of a session, all keystrokes are also captured. Therefore, a SuperAdmin is enabled to search and identify particular keystrokes during each session.
While a SysAdmin session is being recorded, a red box appears around the session window, which provides a clear indication to the user that they are being either recorded or monitored. Furthermore, this red box feature can be disabled so that the user is unaware of that sessions are being monitored.
Device access reporting can search by a wide range of criteria. Which include date/time, user, device, access level, protocol and even window titles.
Additionally, as an option, all privileged users can be alerted that their admin sessions are being recorded. Typically, this is the most effective means of deterring privileged abuse.
PSM can act as an irrefutable change control record within an IT infrastructure, removing any doubt or ambiguity.
Key insight can be gained from session recordings as to why and when a device misconfiguration takes place. Consequently, this allows for the careful examination of changes and provides a quicker return to a stable and working environment.
