Universal Policy Administrator (UPA) – Keeping Your Security Policies Current

Presented by

Rick Moody, Senior Solutions Architect and Ben Reader, Identity Specialist, CyberRes

About this talk

In the race to the cloud, overlooked or incorrect security and configuration policies have resulted in front-page breaches. It has become obvious that outdated and noncompliant security settings are extremely dangerous. While Active Directory and Group Policy are used in most organizations today, cloud solutions—even Azure—are mostly Linux-based with their own security and configuration structures. To protect your organization and ensure a consistent end-user experience, policies need to be constantly enforced across all locations, devices, endpoints, and clouds regardless of vendor. Join us for an introductory look at NetIQ Universal Policy Administrator (UPA) where we’ll explore how it meets these needs. Specifically, NetIQ UPA: • Automates the enforcement of security rules and configuration settings everywhere from a single pane of glass using a very familiar tool: Microsoft Active Directory. • Performs policy management for devices throughout hybrid enterprise environments, including MacOS, Linux, and non-domain-joined Windows machines. • Leverages NetIQ Change Guardian to notify administrators of attempted violations. • Reverts managed devices to their previous state. • Removes elevated access and enforces least privilege access. • Produces event, conflict analysis, and other reports. If your Quest has left you seeking a replacement for your expensive and legacy Group Policy tool, NetIQ Universal Policy Administrator is the solution for you.
