Solutions Spotlight Session: How to Secure Service Desk Credentials
Presenter: Bryan Hood, Manager of Solutions Engineering
When: Wednesday, April 11, 2018, 2:00 2:20 pm. PT
Description: Service desk accounts provide access to critical systems throughout an organization’s infrastructure, and continue to be prime targets for cyber criminals. While these accounts are necessary for the service desk to do their job, IT security professionals struggle to secure them, leaving organizations vulnerable to attacks.
To defend against today’s cyber threats, security professionals need to evaluate how they’re protecting the privileged identities and credentials for their critical systems. Come see how Bomgar’s secure access and identity management solutions enable organizations to protect privileged credentials used by administrators and service desks to reduce the risk of cyberattacks without impacting productivity.
“To support users, help desk staff have access to powerful privileged accounts,” said Donald Hasson, director of ITSM product management. “If their credentials are stolen during a cyberattack, they can be used to move laterally across the network as the attackers look for systems with valuable data. These credentials must be protected without impeding the productivity of the help desk. During our solution’s spotlight session, we’ll provide tips and best practices about how organizations can balance productivity and security to keep operations running smoothly.”
