Privileged user monitoring in Unix

Privileged user monitoring in Unix

Privileged users have the power to make changes to critical system configurations. While these users are responsible for keeping your systems up and running, unchecked or unauthorized configuration changes can create security loopholes in your systems. Privileged users in Unix systems (also called super users or root users) have the permission to make such changes. Sudo commands are commonly used in Unix-based systems to perform administrative actions, making it vital to track when these commands are executed on your systems.

Track root user logons and privileged user activity with EventLog Analyzer

EventLog Analyzer gives you a complete, unified view of privileged user activity on your Linux/Unix systems. With EventLog Analyzer, you can audit the successful and failed super user logons on your Unix systems. If a rogue user tries to guess root credentials, EventLog Analyzer can instantly detect multiple failed logons and help you mitigate those kinds of password attacks.

In addition to tracking logon activity, EventLog Analyzer can help you audit the activity of privileged users in your Linux/Unix systems. If you are concerned about a particular critical Unix server, you can set up an alert profile to generate real-time notifications when any sudo command is executed on that server.

You can view all the sudo commands executed on your Unix systems, track both successful and failed commands, and identify the top executed commands. This will ensure that every executed command is authorized and multiple failed command executions, which could be a potential security threat, are detected in real time.

Track privileged user activities on Unix systems.

  • The best thing, I like about the application, is the well structured GUI and the automated reports. This is a great help for network engineers to monitor all the devices in a single dashboard. The canned reports are a clever piece of work.
