Central configuration and session analytics for sudo
Sudo is one of the most used command line tools in the Linux / UNIX / macOS world. It gives users the ability to execute commands as another user. Most often it is used to gain root (administrator) privileges. Sudo was created when there were a small number of independent large systems. Some support for multiple hosts, central management and monitoring were later added to it. These tools do their jobs, however large enterprises require ease of use, reporting and monitoring.
In this blog I will introduce two tools by One Identity, which provide you with tools to more easily manage access to sudo centrally and to monitor sudo users more easily. Safeguard for Sudo adds centralized management and logging to sudo. Safeguard for Privileged Sessions lets you monitor sudo sessions.
