Summary of Achievements
BalaBit’s Shell Control Box (SCB) 4 F2 is an enterprise-level activity monitoring appliance that controls privileged access to remote IT systems, records activities in searchable, movie-like audit trails, and prevents malicious actions. SCB is completely independent from clients and servers and integrating seamlessly into existing networks.
SCB isolates sensitive systems from unknown intruders or from non-authorised insider users. It monitors all remote accesses to critical IT assets. A strong authentication and access control point in IT environment which fine-tunes existing access policies and reduces user administration costs.
SCB audits who did what in IT systems. Aware of this, employees will do their work with a greater sense of responsibility leading to a reduction in human errors. By having an easily interpreted, tamper-proof record, finger-pointing issues can be eliminated.
SCB makes all user activities traceable by recording them in easily searchable audit trails. The highest quality audit trails ensure that all the necessary information is accessible through ad-hoc analyses or activity reports.
When something wrong happens, analysing thousands of text-based logs can be a nightmare and may require the participation of costly experts. SCB can easily reconstruct the incidents, which shortens investigation time, helps to avoid unexpected costs.
SCB offers granular access management to control who can access what and when on your servers. It records the privileged access into tamper-proof audit trails which can be replayed like a movie to review the events exactly as they occurred. SCB helps to prevent security issues and find not only the root cause of a problem, but also the responsible person. SCB can be integrated with leading Password Management tools and Balabit’s User Behavior Analytics solution, Blindspotter.
SCB helps companies to comply with local laws and international standards
like SOX, PCI-DSS, ISO 27001, EU GDPR that increasingly mandate strict protection of sensitive information.
