Overview

Top rule

Security Verify Privilege Manager delivers an SaaS deployment option for the capabilities provided by the existing Security Verify Privilege Manager On-Premises offering. With Security Verify Privilege Manager, you can block malware-based attacks with least privilege and application control.

Security Verify Privilege Manager enables you to:

  • Gain visibility into endpoints by discovering all local groups across the network and the applications that require administration rights to execute.
  • Create custom allowed and denied lists of trusted and untrusted applications and create contextual elevation policies.
  • Enforce the principle of least privilege by removing all local administrative credentials at once, including hard-coded and hidden administrators.
  • Deploy agents to all Apple Macintosh and Microsoft™ Windows™ endpoints for control of domain and nondomain managed machines.
  • Reduce the impact on desktop support teams through application control, which can automatically elevate privileges for approved applications, deny those on blacklists, or sandbox unknown applications so they can run without access to critical systems.
  • Achieve audit compliance by creating an audit trail of all application policies, administration credentials, and privilege elevation activities. This can be used to show auditors how the implementation of least privilege prevented malicious applications from running.

Security Verify Privilege DevOps Vault is an SaaS offering that automates secrets management to provide DevOps teams the speed and agility needed to stay productive, without sacrificing security. It addresses all scenarios in which secrets are exchanged between machines, including databases and applications for software and infrastructure deployment, testing, orchestration, configuration, and robotic process automation (RPA).

Security Verify Privilege DevOps Vault is designed to enable you to:

  • Minimize risk by automating secrets management with consistent, centralized, and auditable processes
  • Improve security by protecting secrets applications share as part of DevOps and RPA processes
  • Help customers meet compliance mandates

Security Verify Privilege DevOps Vault can help protect the secrets that DevOps teams and RPA tools need to access applications, services, and IT resources by providing the following capabilities:

  • Advanced automation
  • Infinite scalability
  • High-availability and disaster recovery local caching
  • Cloud authentication
  • OpenID Connect authentication dynamic secrets for infrastructure as a service (IaaS)
  • Certificate issuance
  • Languages and tool support
  • Integration with IBM Security Verify Privilege Vault and security information and event management (SIEM) tools
  • Nonproduction tenant availability

Statement of good security practices

Top rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through intrusion prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered, destroyed, or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a regulatory compliant, comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective.

Important: IBM does not warrant that any systems, products, or services are immune from, or will make your enterprise immune from, the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
