ConnectWise Access Management: Eliminate Shared Credentials
Implement credential-less administrative login
Implementing a least privilege environment for administrator accounts reduces the likelihood of a data breach and minimizes disruptions. Privileged Windows accounts should only be assigned to specific IT roles within an organization such as an IT administrator. These superusers can access anything on the system, and any malware they encounter can use these permissions to potentially infect or damage any files on the system or network. Best practice is to only grant administrator-level access when necessary, for the shortest time required and not to share account credentials.
Overuse or misuse of privileged accounts poses the potential for abuse and exploitation, thus these assets are a high value target of cyber criminals. Using ConnectWise Access Management, technicians can request a credential-less administrator account to log into servers and other shared machines to eliminate the bad practice of sharing credentials. Administrators can manually approve or deny these requests, or the responses can be automated. Approval grants technicians access to sensitive devices through a secure ephemeral user, eliminating the need to share passwords.
