Privilege vs Productivity: How to Elevate Local Admin Rights Securely

Presented by

Jeremy Moskowitz (CTO and Founder of PolicyPak, now part of Netwrix)

About this talk

Business and technical end-users often require local admin rights to perform tasks or access applications. Adding standard users to the local administrator group may provide workers the permissions they need but creates significant security risk and may violate regulatory compliance. Microsoft’s Local Administrator Password Solution (LAPS) also creates risk, as bad actors can easily exploit temporary privileged access. Without the right balance of privilege and productivity, organizations are forced to sacrifice security for operational efficiency. Fortunately, advanced endpoint privilege management technology provides organizations with the tools they need to securely elevate local admin rights on an as-needed basis. With advanced endpoint privilege management, domain administrators can elevate local admin rights for only the applications and processes end-users need. By elevating admin rights for specific applications and tasks, organizations can sustain organizational productivity without the risk of over-privileged users. Join Jeremy Moskowitz, 17X Microsoft MVP, for a demonstration of how this technology works and can be used to address common endpoint security and productivity challenges. During this webinar you will learn how advanced endpoint privilege management technologies: - Elevate admin rights for specific applications and processes across domain-joined, non-domain joined, MDM enrolled, and virtual environments - Overcome the security risks associated with LAPS and local administrator groups - Enable end-users to request elevated permissions on an as-needed basis - Manage read, write and execute permissions for USB sticks and external storage drives.
