Sudo’s “free” open-source access utility can work for managing access to a small number of servers. However, it quickly becomes overwhelming as your business grows and requires more sophisticated fine-grain controls, logging, and compliance-reporting capabilities.

Sudo’s labor-intensive custom configuration and distribution process results in high administrative costs and serious gaps in access control and compliance. Deployment costs in re-deploying sudoers files to each host, virtual machine, or system image becomes prohibitive, even when utilizing configuration management tools. This is because they don’t trap and send updates to offline or backup hosts.

Core Privileged Access Manager (BoKS) solves these issues by centrally controlling privileged account delegation and enforcing which commands can be executed by role as live policy in real time. It eliminates privileged password sharing to significantly reduce the risk of insider fraud, and completely removes the (semi)automatic process of sudoers file distribution. It also files version control on each system.

The solution? Uninstall Sudo and migrate to HelpSystems’ functionally equivalent and centrally managed Core Privileged Access Manager (BoKS).
