Balabit’s Privileged Access Management solution protects organizations from threats posed by the misuse of high risk privileged accounts.
Balabit’s Privileged Session Management and Privileged Account Analytics help organizations prevent, detect, and respond to cyber attacks involving privileged accounts, including both insider threats and external attacks using hi-jacked credentials.
Balabit enables a flexible approach to improving security without adding additional constraints to working practices.
Balabit’s Privileged Session Management, Shell Control Box (SCB), controls privileged access to remote IT systems, records activities in searchable, movie-like audit trails, and prevents malicious actions. SCB is a quickly deployable enterprise device, completely independent from clients and servers – integrating seamlessly into existing networks. It captures the activity data necessary for user profiling and enables full user session drill down for forensic investigations.
Balabit’s Privileged Account Analytics, Blindspotter, integrates detailed data from Balabit’s Privileged Session Management solution, Shell Control Box, as well as a variety of contextual data and processes them using unique sets of algorithms, generating behavior profiles that are continually adjusted using machine learning. It detects suspicious activity by identifying unusual and risky deviations to baseline activity, offering a wide range of outputs from risk-based alerts to automated session termination.
Many large organizations have invested in privileged password management tools as a first line of privileged account defense. These tools are important for compliance and baseline security, but have a common limitation: once a privileged user has gained legitimate access – using credentials delivered by the password manager itself – they are free to do what they want. Consequently, there’s no way of preventing insider abuse or identity theft-based attacks. So organizations need to complement their password management investment by adding an in-depth security layer which monitors the activity of privileged account users.
When hackers and attackers gain access through privileged access accounts.
When internal risk, human error or shared passwords leave open the door for rogue admins.
When you need to discover what has happened in your network and who or what is at fault.
When your systems need to be in accordance with the latest regulations, wherever you do business.

The Data Protection Regulation requires the restriction of access to personal data. Consequently, controllers and processors have to take technical measures to control access to sensitive data, which should also include some level of user authorization process. Companies will need to protect data in the same way that they protect critical infrastructure assets, requiring users with access to personal data to be monitored.
Balabit’s Privileged Session Management (PSM) can be a good fit to meet these requirements. The extreme level of data security, together with the granular access rights management, makes PSM compliant with the most rigorous laws and national security certifications:
PSM records all sessions into searchable audit trails, making it easy to find relevant information and replay recorded sessions in forensics or troubleshooting situations.
PSM records all authorized access to sensitive data and provides actionable information in the case of human error or unusual behaviour, helping to create a data breach report within 72 hours.
PSM requires an authorizer to grant administrators access to the server, with the option to monitor them in real-time.
PSM monitors privileged activity in real-time and detects behaviour anomalies as they occur, alerting you immediately.
