SHARED ACCOUNT PASSWORD MANAGEMENT
Control Shared Access to Privileged Accounts
Give your authorized internal users, outsourced IT and third party vendors secure, always-on access to critical shared account passwords, while maintaining control over who has access, which account passwords they have access to and how those passwords are managed.
Secure Checkout of Account Passwords
Authorized IT, whether internal or outsourced, and third party vendors can check out passwords for accounts for a limited duration. Privilege Service provides the option to take passwords under its full control, where it automatically changes the password after the checkout expires or simply store the password for future access without changing it.
Session Establishment Without Disclosing Passwords
Authorized users can access resources using shared accounts without knowing the passwords and Privilege Service will not expose the passwords. IT admins can use shared accounts without risk of password sharing or unauthorized access.
Streamlined, High Performing and Secure Privileged Access from Local Systems
Users who need streamlined privileged access to resources can initiate RDP and SSH sessions directly from their local Windows systems, while maintaining the same level of security they typical experience through the cloud for monitoring, session termination and multi-factor authentication.
Automatically Discover Systems and Service Accounts
Windows, Linux and UNIX systems and their associated service accounts are automatically discovered in Active Directory to be taken under management. Domain accounts used to launch Windows services and scheduled tasks on servers and workstations are also discovered, along with the computers on which they are found.
Risk-based Policies for Checkouts and Privileged Sessions
Identify anomalous behavior while it is happening, by enforcing risk-aware policies for users who are initiating a privileged session or checking out a password. Combining risk-level with role-based access controls, user context and multi-factor authentication (MFA) enables intelligent, automated, real-time decisions on whether to grant privileged access. These dynamically enforced access policies grant the user access, prompt for a second factor of authentication, or block access completely.
Manage Database Account Passwords
Increase security by having users checkout passwords held internally by Microsoft SQL and Oracle databases, with automatic password rotation after the checkout period expires (or the password is checked in).
“Break-glass” Access to Passwords From a Mobile Device
Get controlled, emergency access to privileged account passwords from your mobile device enrolled in the Centrify Identity Platform. Secured password checkout requires a PIN or fingerprint validation. Checkout automatically times out based on per-resource policy.
Secure and Manage Application Passwords
Prevent cyberattacks that target privileged account credentials and streamline operations by eliminating hard-coded, plain text account passwords from scripts and applications. Applications and scripts authenticate and retrieve passwords securely without human intervention, enabling organizations to meet compliance and security policies.
Secure and Encrypted Storage of Your Data
Your data is securely stored using the Centrify Identity Platform for all user, resource, account, and password information. Privilege Service also supports SafeNet KeySecure key management appliances from Gemalto as an alternative for encrypted storage of account passwords.
Best Practices for Privileged Identity Management in the Modern Enterprise
This paper explores the trends impacting data security for today’s modern enterprise — a hybrid organization with infrastructure on premises and in the cloud, and best practices on how to manage and govern privileged user access to mitigate risk.
