Restorepoint announces Universal Console, Simplify and Control Privileged User Access
Restorepoint, the market leader in network infrastructure automation, announced today at the Check Point Experience, the launch of Universal Console, a unique solution that enables businesses to regain control over infrastructure access, improve security, and automate repetitive tasks.
Universal Console (UC) acts a single access gateway, to network devices and servers, simplifying management and eliminating two of the most common security risks today: privileged user access and lack of unified audit controls. UC can be deployed quickly as a dedicated appliance or virtual appliance running on VMware, providing administrators access to devices using just a web browser and without requiring any network changes.
"Organisations find it harder than they should to control access to their network devices or servers” says Michael Bell, Director at Restorepoint. “Networks are never made up of single vendor solutions with a single management solution, which means that providing or removing access to systems for privileged users or contractors is time consuming. Often device or server user accounts are shared amongst administrators for simplicity, but this means that organisations carry higher security risks than perhaps policies might dictate, and there is no audit trail of user activities.”
“Using UC, you can provide or remove access to a device or server in seconds, recording all sessions, without making changes to the target devices, or the need for desktop software. UC essentially acts as a web based portal, that proxies administrators connections to devices, or remote control sessions of servers, using just a web browser. Organisations we’ve spoken to really value the simplicity of access, the way in which they can automate changes, and the fact we’re able to it record everything means they can go beyond what appears in a log file and actually see who did what and when”
