MANCHESTER, United Kingdom & BOSTON--(Avecto, the leader in Windows privilege management, today announced that it will present at RSA 2013, February 27th, 2013 in San Francisco. During the theatre presentation, Brian Hanrahan, Avecto Senior Systems Consultant, will explain how least privilege management empowers users with the privileges they need to perform their roles, without compromising the security of the corporate network.)--
As organizations complete their Windows 7 migration or prepare to migrate to Windows 8, IT is tasked with minimizing network security vulnerabilities, while still ensuring employees stay productive throughout the process. Leveraging recent customer wins to support his demonstration, Hanrahan will explain the importance of controlling who has access to running or downloading specific applications on the network and how it enhances security and compliance across Windows desktops and servers.
“Granting employees full control of their corporate desktop can result in serious compatibility issues and detrimental security breaches – both of which cost time and money. Yet, removing admin rights completely often restricts employees from efficiently carrying out their day-to-day tasks. Enterprises are finding that by leveraging targeted privilege elevation and granting users standard accounts rather than administrator ones, least privilege management strikes the elusive balance between security and productivity.” – Brian Hanrahan, Senior Systems Consultant, Avecto
