Balabit’s Privileged Session Management (PSM, formerly known as Shell Control Box) controls privileged access to remote IT systems, records activities in searchable, movie-like audit trails, and prevents malicious actions. PSM 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 Privileged Session Management is now One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Sessions.
With Safeguard for Privileged Sessions, you can control, monitor and record privileged sessions of administrators, remote vendors and other high-risk users. Content of the recorded sessions is indexed to simplify searching for events and reporting so you can more easily meet your auditing and compliance requirements. In addition, Safeguard for Privileged Sessions serves as a proxy, and inspects the protocol traffic on the application level and can reject any traffic violating the protocol – thus making it an effective shield against attacks.
In transparent mode, only minimal network changes are required and users do not have to change their workflow or client applications, which makes implementation a breeze. However, workflow can be configured so you can authenticate users, limit access to specific resources, authorize and view active connections, and receive an alert if connections exceed preset time limits. Safeguard can also monitor sessions in real time and execute various actions: if a risky command or application appears, it can send you an alert or immediately terminate the session.
