Improved Security Practices with ConsoleWorks

By Tom Kearns

When it comes to security, ConsoleWorks offers many unique features to ensure robust and consistent security practices across the IT infrastructure.

ConsoleWorks maintains a persistent, secure connection to physical and logical infrastructure to monitor user actions, machine activity and all defined incidents worth knowing about. Various levels of physical and logical security are implemented to provide necessary – and often required – protective measures.

ConsoleWorks also enables strong password implementation, access restrictions by task, by role and by policy, and user authentication internally and externally. The solution offers two communication security options, SSL and SSH, which provide for the exchange of encrypted information between the browser (SSL) or the CLI (SSH) and the ConsoleWorks server, and between the ConsoleWorks server and the managed asset (SSH).

The ConsoleWorks solution supports a robust task-based/role-based privilege model based on user-defined Access Control Rules. These Access Control Rules give administrators more granular and graduated control over what specific users can do inside ConsoleWorks and how they can utilize ConsoleWorks to access and interact with managed assets.
