Auditing privileged user activity
Privileged users accounts have unrestricted access to all the critical servers, applications, and databases in enterprises, including permissions for creating or removing user profiles and managing user privileges. This poses a significant security challenge for an organization, because when privilege user accounts are compromised, it can cause irreparable damage to the organization.
Privileged users accounts are enticing targets for hackers. When hackers seize these accounts, they can be used to access all business-critical applications and sensitive proprietary data. Insider attacks occur when negligent or malicious privileged users violate compliance regulations. To prevent such incidents, privileged user accounts should be closely audited to obtain a 360 degree view of their activities.
Privileged user auditing reports
EventLog Analyzer offers privileged user auditing reports which help in identifying user behavior that may indicate privilege abuse. These reports are very useful for forensic investigations because they help trace back attacks to the security system loopholes that allowed them in. In short, privileged user auditing reports can provide robust privileged user monitoring and auditing capabilities without affecting business productivity.
Insightful and user-friendly reports
Privileged usera uditing reports provide a bird's eye view of all user activities and are presented in user-friendly styles so as to highlight behaviors that deviate from normal access patterns. These reports are categorized in two ways:
- User activity overview: Graphically displays the user activity events for devices. If needed, the results can be filtered by device.
- User-based reports: Represents user activity events for a specific user or group of users. Filter results by device, if needed.
Each of these reports are graphically represented to aid in auditing user activities. They can also be exported in multiple formats, as needed. EventLog Analyzer is also provisioned to display the raw logs of the filtered events for performing audit trail analyses.
