Enforcement of least privilege on endpoints to allow non-administrators to perform certain management tasks |
Elimination of admin rights on user desktops and laptops is a great start to reducing the attack surface of your endpoints. However, this can lead substantial productivity losses and even fail the whole least privilege initiative, because users or helpdesk operators are not able to perform their duties that require certain administrative privileges on endpoints.
Action1 provides a free endpoint least privilege management solution that allows to implement the principle of least privilege and enable separation of duties via desktop management delegation and role-based administration (also known as role-based access control or RBAC).
Action1 allows to grant access to certain users to execute specific tasks, such as the ability to launch predefined applications or scripts, manage users and control some security settings. Such as you can whitelist a number of predetermined PowerShell scripts that require administrative rights to execute, while disallowing execution of all other admin-level scripts. It additionally brings full accountability of all management actions, because Action1 audits execution of all such actions along with the user name and time stamp to help proactively eliminate security threats and ease incident investigations.
