Solution Benefits


Increase Security

Gain Control. Enforce Security. Achieve Compliance.

Having trouble defining, controlling, and monitoring administrative privileges across your IT systems? You’re not alone. Most systems provide unrestricted, untraceable access, making privileged account management very difficult. Core Privileged Access Manager (BoKS) offers centrally controlled privileged account delegation, enforcing which commands can be executed by role. It eliminates privileged password sharing to significantly reduce the risk of insider fraud.

Many organizations are running heterogenous Linux/UNIX server environments with a mix of legacy systems alongside new infrastructure, including on-premises servers, private cloud, and/or public cloud deployments. Managing privileged access and enforcing security policies across a variety of systems is difficult and inefficient without the right tools in place. Core Privileged Access Manager (BoKS) provides complete control over accounts and privileged access, including support for sudo and sudoedit, and automated renewal for node keys, helping ensure the principle of least privilege is applied across your entire environment. Core Privileged Access Manager (BoKS) significantly streamlines administration of user accounts and satisfies auditor requirements with centralized audit reporting.

It is important for organizations to employ synchronized policies across on-premises and cloud environments to effectively strengthen data security, maintain operations, and prepare for regulatory audits. Relying solely on a cloud vendor's default security settings is a mistake. Centrally managing accounts and privileged access across your on-premises and cloud environments with Core Privileged Access Manager (BoKS) enforces consistent security controls and provides seamless management across technology stacks. This gives organizations the ability to unify their security efforts and quickly extend security to the cloud.

Meet compliance regulations such as PCI-DSSHIPAA, and SOX by architecting security into your deployment from the start. Core Privileged Access Manager (BoKS)'s automated credentials management and enforcement approach gets organizations out of the SSH key management business, enabling them to increase the granularity of access enforcement, and easily meet strict compliance regulations. Automated compliance reporting provides auditors with the information they need without interrupting admin staff. Core Privileged Access Manager (BoKS) is used by multi-national enterprises with stringent compliance requirements to both ensure and simplify compliance.


Accelerate Growth

Simplify Administration. Drive Efficiency. Enable Scalability.

Core Privileged Access Manager (BoKS) helps organizations automate IT administration and processes to optimize current staff and reduce the cost of business operations. 

With Core Privileged Access Manager (BoKS), IT staff are able to centralize the administration of users, improve the controls over how users are granted access to system resources, as well as enhance the auditability of Linux and UNIX servers. By eliminating manual processes and inefficiencies, organizations can significantly improve administrator productivity while providing a more secure computing environment.

Here are some reasons Linux/UNIX admins love Core Privileged Access Manager (BoKS):

  • Centrally create, modify, and/or remove users and groups across the server environment within minutes
  • Automates reporting for audit and compliance
  • Deploys rapidly, is reliable, and scales easily with growing enterprise
  • User password and group synchronization are pushed automatically
  • Integration with external Directories - LDAPS/LDAP based
  • Bridging with Microsoft Active Directory - making User and Host Groups visible in AD, reducing operational costs
  • Integration with external Identity/Role and Federation services as sources of identity using Web Services

Without tooling, an administrator can manually manage accounts and access for up to 100 servers or virtual machines. With the help of configuration management software, like Chef, Puppet, or Ansible, that same administrator is able to manage up to 500 servers or virtual machines. With an enterprise privileged access management solution like Core Privileged Access Manager (BoKS), a single administrator is able to manage anywhere from 10 to tens of thousands of servers or virtual machines. In fact, we've got customers efficiently managing more than 80,000 nodes and counting with very small teams.

Industry analysts estimate that Linux/UNIX infrastructures are growing by 100 percent every 12–18 months. Organizations are doubling their footprint rapidly, but administrative headcount remains static. As a result, manual process must transition to the automation of day-to-day tasks to continue to support the business. Core Privileged Access Manager (BoKS) does that by enabling organizations to securely scale hybrid environments 10x faster, with less impact on IT operations processes and applications. With Core Privileged Access Manager (BoKS) centrally managing all aspects of account provisioning, access control and privilege escalation, your current staff will be able to keep pace with today’s ever-expanding server environments.
