There’s a significant difference between endpoint privilege management and endpoint privilege security. And when it comes to defending against today’s endpoint-focused attacks, organizations need the best of both – it should not be an either-or proposition.
To help you identify the controls needed to protect endpoints, this whitepaper explores key differences between endpoint privilege management and endpoint privilege security solutions. For example:
- Endpoint privilege management helps organizations align to a key security concept — no one should work under an administrator account — while not losing too much in the process. Focusing on standard users, it merely helps automate some IT help desk tasks as support tickets flow in from users who’ve lost admin rights.
- Endpoint privilege security is the implementation of a “least privilege” approach taken to extremes – and enforced across the board for standard users, advanced users and administrators alike. And, it is role-specific, meaning instead of having inadequate minimum restrictions, organizations can implement security tailored for each role in a company.
