Live Webinar:

Enhancing Security and Efficiency in Educational IT Environments

Discover how to Master Privileged Access Control with Admin By Request 

Wednesday 20th September 2023 | 2pm


Admin By Request: A simple to deploy, infrastructure free security solution for the control and management of local administrative rights on desktops and servers.

Schools and Higher Education Institutions are target rich environments. Staff and students’ workstations can be easily compromised if a user with Local Admin Rights runs an executable that contains malware. Network security can be compromised by an attacker to steal data, financials and IP if just one compromised user is operating with unrestricted local admin rights.

Our partner, Fasttrack Software, a world leader in Privileged Access Management, provide a solution called Admin By Request that enables staff and students to confidently reduce risk whilst maintaining productivity by enabling rapid provisioning of just in time privilege elevation across your entire environment. The result - Enhanced productivity for all. As all elevations can be fully audited you are able to maintain full compliance with security frameworks such as IS0 27001.

About the Webinar 

In this webinar, we will cover the Admin By Request Privileged Access Management solution and the range of features available which would allow for granular access control across IT systems (Settings and Sub-Settings for user groups), as well as the Pre-Approval and Run as Admin features - both of which negate the need to provide full admin access to users at any point by allowing only approved applications to gain elevated privileges when they're needed. We will also highlight Atlantic Technological University's experience with Admin By Request and the impact the solution had on the overall IT Environment. 

ATU's  journey started with a challenge to reach a zero-trust model with student and staff members. This stemmed from their vast number of users with varying needs. This, combined with security concerns over users having around-the-clock administrative access, led to the search for a solution that would give the organisation visibility, allowing them to gain a better understanding of what programs their users required on their endpoints; and control, providing the tools for users to gain elevated access in a safe and secure manner.

If your IT department is tied up continually with routine tasks such as printer drivers, VPN software and plugin installations then Admin By Request is the solution for you. Join us to learn more about how you can regain control of your local admin account to ensure the safety of your learning environment. If you can't make it, why not try Admin By Requests free 25 user plan available here and the team will be in touch to arrange a personalised demonstration.
