ATLANTA, GA – July 19, 2016 – Bomgar, a leader in secure access solutions, today released the latest software version of its Privileged Access solution. Bomgar Privileged Access enables security professionals to control, monitor, and manage access to critical systems by privileged users and third-party vendors. Bomgar’s unique, VPN-free approach allows companies to quickly gain control of privileged access to both traditional and web-based systems to protect against cyberattacks and meet compliance requirements.
Bomgar Privileged Access 16.1 offers more deployment options and allows security organizations to extend access controls across their hybrid environments. The new capabilities further fortify security along with enhancing performance, streamlining access for privileged users, and improving user administration:
“Misuse of privileged accounts has been a factor in the majority of cyber breaches in the past few years,” said Sam Elliott, director of security product management, Bomgar. “Cyber criminals are persistently looking for footholds into company or government networks that are both public, like those hosted by providers like Amazon, as well as private, like their internal data centers. These bad actors regularly target unsecured access pathways because they know they will have a strong chance to find and leverage privileged accounts for malicious purposes. Often these pathways can be compromised without the attacker having any privileged credentials, allowing them to go unnoticed within the network for weeks or months. Bomgar allows security organizations to secure access to its most critical systems, while making access easier for privileged system administrators.”
Bomgar Privileged Access works seamlessly with Bomgar Vault, an intuitive credential safe that allows security professionals to authorize access without exposing credentials to privileged accounts. Bomgar Vault stores and rotates credentials, and allows users or elevate privileges with credential or SSH key injection directly from Privileged Access. Organizations can also require multifactor authentication to Privileged Access with Bomgar Verify, an easy-to-use, tokenless two factor authentication solution that lets users choose and manage their own devices for a second factor of authentication.
