Privileged User Monitoring


The Challenge

Administrator and privileged accounts are usually owned by employees or vendors who need access to the critical components of a system in order to complete their jobs. Since an administrator may have access to sensitive data, it can be incredibly difficult to detect an internal threat before a malicious administrator has already caused damage.

The Solution

Teramind provides a monitoring platform to ensure that an organization's system remains secure under all circumstances. We ensure all screens are visually recorded, individual actions are carefully logged, and alerts are set-up to prevent data breaches. Some examples of alerts include:

  • Creating back-door accounts

  • Attempts to gain additional system privileges

  • Accessing sensitive personal information

  • Attempted edits of configuration files

  • When an abnormality is detected within the system, Teramind sends out an instant alert to security administrators. Once the alert is received, individual users can be pinpointed on a live and visual basis, allowing the system to be locked-down before any incident occurs.

    Teramind gives you the ability to break down accounts by vendor so management can easily track what each vendor is doing at any given time. External vendors are subject to the same level of scrutiny as regular users and DBAs, allowing for automated alerts to be sent based on preset preferences.
