Controlling & Managing Super User Access

This “Primer on Privileged Account Management” was written by Kris Zupan who was one of the founders of eDMZ and is now Chief Architect here at Quest Software.
Effectively managing privileged accounts (sometimes called super user accounts) is becoming more and more critical as security and compliance emerge as the driving force behind most IT initiatives. Unfortunately, native tools and manual practices for privileged account management are proving to be inadequate for today’s complex heterogeneous enterprise.

This white paper explores the risks associated with privileged accounts, and explains how Quest’s solutions mitigate those risks by enabling granular access control and accountability while preserving necessary access and ease of use. This paper is intended for CIOs, IT directors and managers, security and compliance officers and administrators in enterprises of all sizes, especially those who have not established firm control over all of their organization’s privileged user accounts.
