Boardgent allows you to manage the local passwords for Windows, Mac and Linux, preventing the support area or external users from having unrestricted access to company information, in addition to helping you accelerate your company's computer security projects.
Why is it important?
Local administration users are one of the links in the IT security chain, which is why companies are forced to maintain them, even if they don't have tools to manage them properly. In some cases, they are the only mechanism to support certain technologies such as those that work at the BIOS or processor level, and in others, they are the last measure to access a computer when it loses connectivity with centralized authentication directories. These users reside independently on each machine. For example, the Windows user is on the SAM file on the hard drive, the BIOS on the motherboard, and the Intel vPro on a chip near the processor.
Proper management of local administrator keys prevents side attacks and virus spread.
How do we help you fight this problem?
Periodically and automatically change the local administrator password of the operating system (Windows, Mac and Linux) to prevent a virus from spreading throughout the network in the event that it infects one of the company's computers.
It prevents the support area or external consultants from having unlimited control over the company's information.
