Administrative Rights Management - Delinea Privilege Manager

Introduction

Privilege rights management ensures that an individual has only the necessary level of access when needed. A privilege rights solution elevates the system user to administrator in a recognizable and procedural way that allows users to identify, describe, and authorize the event. In addition to identifying malicious activities that are linked to privilege abuse, this solution minimizes the potential for a security breach since applications cannot run as administrator without this process.
