Delinea, a supplier of privileged access management (PAM) solutions for seamless security, has just released the most recent version of Server Suite, their privilege management product for servers connected to Microsoft Active Directory (AD). Compatibility for more recent versions of popular Linux distributions, Smart Card support for fresh Linux editions, and improved Active Directory integration are just a few of the new features.
In a 2021 survey, Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) found that more than 40 percent of firms reported successful Active Directory attacks during the previous one to two years, with 50 percent of businesses having experienced such attacks. 59 percent of financial services organizations, according to a Varonis study, have more than 500 passwords that never expire, and nearly 40 percent have more than 10,000 phantom users.
When controlling access to a Linux server using Active Directory, conflicts might arise when identities given by AD are inconsistent with already-existing local identities. These conflicts are now resolved by the most recent version of Server Suite. This consistency enhancement can remove obstacles that can stand in the way of privileged Just-in-Time access to vital resources and continued production.
These new capabilities expand on Delinea’s long history as a pioneer in giving *NIX systems least privilege and identity consolidation capabilities.
Support for Linux Distributions
“Our team continues to develop features that increase our customers’ security and meet their requirements to run heterogeneous server environments while using Active Directory as their enterprise directory service,” said Phil Calvin, Chief Product Officer at Delinea. “Whether our customers are leveraging the largest or some of the newest Linux distributions, Server Suite will continue to help them ensure consolidated, consistent authentication and privilege management.”
The latest release of Delinea Server Suite would also include the following novelties:
- By adding support for Ubuntu 22.04, RHEL 8.6 and 9, and other major Linux distributions, users can ensure that the danger of lateral movement is reduced when using least privilege management and Active Directory to consolidate identities.
- Increase customers’ ability to satisfy NIST Authenticator Assurance Level 3 for situations that need some of the highest levels of security by adding support for smart card authentication to Rocky Linux and AlmaLinux, two of the most recent distributions.
