Privileged User Monitoring

When it comes to protecting a network from insider threats, organizations need the ability to keep a watchful eye on its privileged users. This includes business users with direct access to confidential data systems, as well as administrators with the ability to create and modify permissions, privileges and access to any device.

The challenge is finding a way to keep an eye on all systems within a large, heterogeneous environment and quickly identify improper or malicious behavior when, in most cases, the people responsible for the behavior in question are the ones with access to the log files that record all user activity.

LogRhythm provides unprecedented auditing and insight into privileged user activity, across the enterprise.

Watching Privileged Users

Challenge

“Administrator” privileges usually include the ability to modify or even remove activity log data.

Solution

LogRhythm’s real-time, automated, centralized and secure collection of log data provides independent access to privileged user activity logs without relying on the privileged user for collection.

Benefit

Using the alarming tool, LogRhythm users can set up alerts to send out notifications any time a privileged user account is added or modified, including information about who created the account.
