Get alerted to privileged user rule violations as soon as they happen with instant alerts

Receive alert and notification reports on what actions were taken and in what context

Send privileged users instant warnings when their risky and suspicious activities are detected

Set up a monitoring widget on the dashboard for real-time privileged user monitoring updates active users

Behavioral Anomaly Detection

Define what constitutes dangerous or harmful user behavior within privileged access monitoring then automatically detect it with Teramind anomaly detection

Define baselines then automatically detect when a user, department, or group deviates from their normal parameters

Leverage behavior anomaly detection to get alerts when acceptable risk levels are exceeded

Detect behavior anomalies in apps, emails, network use, file activities or printing

Stop malicious attempts by locking users out or taking remote control of the compromised system after an anomaly alert is received

Remote Desktop Control

Teramind’s remote control feature gives you the ability to remove users, contain activity, and eliminate threats associated with privileged user accounts

Instantly take away a user’s ability to access a desktop with Teramind’s privileged access monitoring

Manually override an account and remove users or disable mouse and keyboard control so no further action can be taken

Authentication and Access Control

Role Based Access Control (RBAC), authentication and segregated privileges prevent unauthorized access or sharing of confidential data

Set up account access for each privileged user that requires authorized clearance and easily track what each user is doing at any given time

Use group profiles to create different access levels based on departments, job function, or source of access (i.e. remoteor third-party)

See what information and system resources each group or department can access

Session Recording and Audit

Teramind visually records every action that a user makes while on a machine, allowing for both live viewing and past recordings. Extensive metadata and fast indexing from privileged user monitoring allow past incidents to be searched and retrieved in seconds.

Investigate user actions, rule violations and other incidents using session recordings

Export logs detailing privileged user sessions as PDF or CSV or import logs into monitoring and analytics systems like LogRhythm

Options to access audio through privileged user monitoring supports audio input/output monitoring

Activate audio support then download and export privileged user monitoring sessions with audio as MP4s

Risk Analysis and Mitigation

Use Teramind’s dedicate Risk Assessment dashboard to conduct organization-wide risk assessments and risk assessments of privileged users

Profile risk by user, team, department or across the entire organization or by content

Derive reports by severity of risks or by how many times security violations occurred

Unique Risk Scores within the privileged user monitoring system help you identify high-risk users or policies

Risk scores can be used to develop plans for treating risks

IAM/PAM/SIEM Integration

Teramind privileged user monitoring allows you to share reports and threat intelligence with your security team or other departments and easily integrate with SIEM and other analytics tools

Integrate Teramind into your project management system or SIEM directly from the dashboard
