Remove the risk

Insider threats are a real threat in organizations where users have too much access to systems or data. Arguably the best known case of malicious insider attack is the NSA data breach, when contractor Edward Snowden obtained logins for a number of NSA employees in his role as systems administrator, and then leaked the agency secrets.

Removing admin rights is often cited as the single biggest improvement you can make in improving security, but balancing user freedom is a challenge that many businesses struggle to get right.

Defendpoint stops the attack

Defendpoint combines privilege management and application control technology to protect you from accidental or malicious insider threats. It allows you to follow industry best practices recommended by experts such as Gartner, Center for Internet Security and more by protecting the operating system and removing admin rights.

Privileges are assigned directly to applications, tasks and scripts and never to users. Contextual messages replace standard User Account Control prompts to improve communication. And you're protected even in the data center with Defendpoint for Servers, with even Sysadmins running as standard users.
