REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Nov. 30, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Delinea,
a leading provider of Privileged Access Management (PAM) solutions for
seamless security, today announced the latest release of Cloud Suite,
its solution that controls privileged access and authorization for
on-premises and cloud servers. A new granular privilege elevation
workflow allows users to request elevated privileges to execute specific
commands or command sets that require full administrator rights. New
functionality also enables administrators to assign privileged roles on
Linux servers with more detailed control, helping to ensure that
productivity does not compromise security.
According to the 2022 VMWare Global Incident Response Threat Report,
lateral movements are detected in 25% of all attacks, with
cybercriminals abusing tools such as host scripts, file storage, and
synchronization. Cloud Suite empowers customers with robust capabilities
that help contain the impact of a potential breach and greatly reduce
the likelihood of lateral movements. For example, IT teams can
consolidate identities across enterprise directories and cloud providers
including Active Directory, Azure AD, AWS, and Google Cloud, simplify
authentication, and apply granular authorization controls to implement
least privilege best practices, enhancing security postures.
More granular privilege elevation automation
Available now in public preview, privilege elevation workflows give
users a way to request access to commands that require elevated
privileges when they don’t have that access, and they are enabled for
one, multiple, or all commands on the system. The new workflow allows
users to request elevated privileges only for specific commands or
command sets without having to request administrator access to all
commands every time. This functionality supports the principle of
just-in-time and just-enough access at a more granular level.
Finer controls on Linux servers
The Cloud Suite update also includes profile mapping for Unix roles
that ensures privileged access controls can be managed as sets of
enrolled Linux servers rather than globally, for a more targeted
privilege authorization. This feature helps minimize the risk of
over-privileged roles and promotes least privilege best practices.
“With this release of Cloud Suite, we are making it easier for our
customers to apply finer, more granular controls for privileged access
to their on-premise and public cloud servers which house their critical
data,” said Phil Calvin, Chief Product Officer at Delinea.
Additional updates in this release include added group privileges on
Windows servers and support for the latest distributions of AlmaLinux
and Rocky Linux.
