In 3 bullets, summarize why this product or service is different from the competition and deserves recognition:

- Improves Security with Granular Privileged Access Controls: Most systems provide unrestricted, untraceable access, making privileged account management very difficult. Powertech Identity & Access Manager (BoKS) offers centrally controlled privileged account delegation, enforcing which commands can be executed by role and eliminates privileged password sharing to significantly reduce the risk of insider fraud.

- Enforces Security Controls Across the Multi-Platform Environment: Many organizations run heterogenous Linux/UNIX server environments with a mix of legacy systems alongside new infrastructure, including on-premises servers, private cloud, and/or public cloud deployments. Powertech Identity & Access Manager provides complete control over accounts and privileged access, making sure that the principle of least privilege is applied across the entire environment.

- Ensures Regulatory Compliance: Powertech Identity & Access Manager enables companies to meet compliance regulations, such as PCI-DSS, HIPAA, and SOX by architecting security into deployment from the start. With automated credentials management and an enforcement approach, organizations get out of SSH key management, enabling them to increase the granularity of access enforcement, and easily meet strict compliance regulations. Powertech Identity & Access Manager is used by multi-national enterprises with stringent compliance requirements to both ensure and simplify compliance.
