Closing the Gaps in Root Access Control
The root account used to administer Unix and Linux systems presents one of the highest-impact opportunities for exploit, fraud or information theft. Rarely has there been a more significant need for the control of root-level privilege than in the current economic climate, with business consolidation and substantial personnel changes sweeping through virtually every industry. Without enterprise-class solutions, businesses may not only risk the loss of visibility essential to protecting trustworthy professionals as well as the business, they may also quite literally lose control of business-critical IT resources at their most fundamental level.
Join Scott Crawford from EMA in this webcast as he details trends showing how more finely grained Unix and Linux access control can help your enterprise. Scott will be joined by Symark CEO John Mutch who will discuss a solution that offers a more comprehensive scope of provable control, simultaneously helping the business to assure security as well as compliance priorities, and delivering verifiable protection against one of the highest-impact risks in the enterprise.
