Manage, Control, and Audit the Use of Shared, Privileged, and Administrative Accounts

  • Do you know how many privileged, shared, or generic identities exist within your IT infrastructure?
  • Do you know who has access to these accounts and what they’re doing during administrative sessions?
  • Are auditors requesting reports on entitlement to and usage of these identities?

The average enterprise includes thousands of privileged identities, accounts, and passwords.  Manually managing and updating these is a time-consuming, costly and repetitive process.  Administrative and application accounts (hard-coded, embedded credentials) can be found in network devices, servers, and software within an organization, including virtual environments, yet access to these accounts is unmonitored.  Sharing of access to these accounts occurs frequently, so the system does not track WHO logged in, merely that a login occurred—a significant audit challenge.

Learn how to mitigate the risk of mismanagement of shared, privileged, and administrative accounts and how to address associated audit and compliance findings.

10:45am-11:30am Session Three

Securing the Virtual World

Virtualization is part of an overall trend within IT to centralize administrative tasks while improving scalability and workloads. Questions have arisen around security within virtualized environments and if they are as safe as physical environments or even perhaps safer. This presentation addresses the challenges that are faced and how to tackle them successfully.

Onboarding Personal Devices to Corporate Networks

Many IT organizations are being asked to allow personal devices onto corporate networks.  Unlike corporate-issued devices that are well-managed and under IT’s control, this new Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) initiative introduces a unique set of security challenges that require a balance of flexibility, visibility, security.

This presentation will explain the concept of a “BYOD Blueprint” and lessons learned from onboarding personal devices to over 800 networks around the world.

Network Security – It’s More than Just Firewalls

Too often, IT teams rely too much on just firewalls for network security – but often overlook many key aspects and are missing the information needed to maximize security across the organization.  How often do your network and audit teams argue of what is required and what is actually happening?

This presentation will highlight key best practices and provide actionable takeaways to help ensure and maintain a secure network infrastructure.  Topics will include:

  • Key DNS and DHCP data for detecting risks faster
  • Automatic end-point detection and IP address management
  • Real-time and trending views for enhanced monitoring
  • Ensuring your network devices maintain network and security practices, and
  • Eliminating repetitive steps and reducing time for proving compliance

Learn from our industry expert how to get ahead of the curve with network security.
