Control Admin Rights Easily with PowerBroker for Desktops

It has become a legacy from computing days gone by those employees in many organizations and businesses have too much access to critical files and operations on workplace computer stations. As a result of such outmoded platforms like sudo, employees have been granted with administrative privileges on their desktop computers as a way of allowing them to perform their day to day functions as employees. The problem that such a way of working has caused, however, is that these employees now have much more access than they actually need, opening up the business or organization to serious threats to their IT enterprise. Fortunately, there are now solutions to this problem that can be easily and quickly implemented in any organization, allowing for uninterrupted productivity.

PowerBroker for desktops is a state of the art tool that managers in businesses and organizations of all sizes have found that works easily and efficiently to remove unneeded computing access for employees. Each desktop can be configured separately to provide the employee who uses it with exactly the right amount of access that he or she needs to do the job right, without providing more than is needed. The result is a much more secure IT enterprise environment, protecting your computing security on an organization wide basis. What is more, PowerBroker for desktops can be used in any system as it is currently configured, even those systems that are deeply reliant on such outmoded plans as sudo. PowerBroker works with your IT enterprise to find a reliable solution to controlling widespread administrator rights.

The problem began when employees needed to be able to perform simple computing functions such as install updates to software programs, which required administrative access. Rather than require the IT department to handle hundreds or thousands of requests for updating software or handling Active-X commands, these employees were granted access to generalized passwords and log in information that gave them administrative privileges. The result was that employees at every level within the business or organization had access to critical files and processes within the IT enterprise. This exposes a business to threats from malware as well as to data theft, the installation of unauthorized software products, and to the damaging of critical network files.

PowerBroker ends this need to grant every employee with such widespread access, restoring the proper balance of privileges in the workplace. This can be done in a custom manner for each desktop station, resulting in excellent efficiency and usability.
