Privileged Session Management

Balabit’s Privileged Session Management, Shell Control Box (SCB), controls privileged access to remote IT systems, records activities in searchable, movie-like audit trails, and prevents malicious actions. SCB 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.

SCB is a host-independent and turnkey network appliance - its implementation is fast and simple. You can have a fully operational session management solution within a week. As a transparent solution, it requires minimal change to your network. Users do not have to change their client applications or workflow.

Central policy enforcement

The SCB acts as a centralized authentication and access-control point in your IT environment which protects against privileged identity theft and malicious insiders. The granular access management helps you to control who can access what and when on your critical IT assets.

Prevention of malicious activities

SCB monitors privileged user sessions in real-time and detects policy violations as they occur. In case of detecting a suspicious user activity (for example entering a destructive command, such as the "rm"), SCB can send you an alert or immediately terminate the connection.

Greater accountability

SCB audits "who did what", for example on your database or SAP servers. Aware of this, your employees will do their work with a greater sense of responsibility leading to a reduction in human errors. By having an easily interpreted, tamper-proof record, finger-pointing issues can be eliminated.

Faster, cost-effective compliance audits

SCB makes all user activity traceable by recording them in high quality, tamper-proof and easily searchable audit trails. The movie-like audit trails ensure that all the necessary information is accessible for ad-hoc analyses or audit reports.

Lower troubleshooting & forensics costs

When something wrong happens, everybody wants to know the real story. Analyzing thousands of text-based logs can be a nightmare and may require the participation of external experts. The ability to easily reconstruct user sessions allows you to shorten investigation time and avoid unexpected cost.
