Intro

BoKS ServerControl

 

BoKS® ServerControl transforms your multi-vendor Linux and UNIX server environment into one centrally managed security domain. It simplifies your organization’s ability to enforce security policies, and control access to critical systems and information. With full control over accounts, access and privilege, IT and security teams can proactively prevent internal and external attacks on critical systems before they start.

Comprehensive Account and Privileged Access Management

Access Control

Secure your systems by managing user privileges and access to sensitive data—without slowing down productivity.

BoKS ServerControl Least Privilege Enforcement

Least Privilege Enforcement

Give users only the access they need and ensure that least privileged access is enforced across your hybrid environment.

BoKS Server Control enabled us to unify our security policies across both internal and cloud infrastructures, which ensures consistency across the enterprise.

Improve Security with Granular Privileged Access Controls

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. BoKS ServerControl 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.

Enforce Security Controls Across Your Multi-Platform Environment

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. BoKS ServerControl provides complete control over accounts and privileged access, making sure that the principle of least privilege is applied across your entire environment. BoKS significantly streamlines administration of user accounts and satisfies auditor requirements with centralized audit reporting.

Extend Security to the Cloud

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 BoKS ServerControl 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.

Ensure Compliance

Meet compliance regulations such as PCI-DSS, HIPAA, and SOX by architecting security into your deployment from the start. BoKS ServerControl'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. BoKS ServerControl is used by multi-national enterprises with stringent compliance requirements to both ensure and simplify compliance.

Drive Efficiency with Simplified Security Administration

BoKS ServerControl helps organizations automate IT administration and processes to optimize current staff and reduce the cost of business operations. 

With 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 BoKS ServerControl:

  • 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

Enable Scalability

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 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. BoKS ServerControl does that by enabling organizations to securely scale hybrid environments 10x faster, with less impact on IT operations processes and applications. With 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.

Key Features

Centralized Administration

Centralized security controls allow for instantaneous provisioning and de-provisioning of users to better secure your environment, increase incident reaction time, and help mitigate risks.

Privileged Access Control

Default to least privilege to close security gaps. Provide the necessary amount of privilege and access for users to do their jobs—without exposing administrator credentials.

SSH Key Management

Centralize SSH key management to gain full control over who, what, when, where, and how a user or machine can access systems, data, and run processes.

Auditing & Reporting

Create turnkey IT security audit and compliance reports for full visibility across your server environment so that you can make quick informed decisions.

Keystroke Logging

Record 100 percent of keystrokes and output to gain full visibility across your entire environment, reduce risk of insider threats, and simplify auditing and compliance.

Microsoft AD Bridging

Control your Linux and UNIX environments inside of AD to quickly and efficiently publish roles for Windows administrators to use during the provisioning process.

Granular Access Control

Implement fine-grain security controls. Define and enforce who is granted elevated privilege, when, from where, and how with BoKS ServerControl.

Centralized SUDO

Centrally control privileged account delegation, enforce which commands can be executed by role in real time, and eliminate the distribution of sudoers' files completely.

Web Services Interface

Extend administrative control to your identity source to allow your existing infrastructure to command and control your environment, and automate the provisioning process.
