Advanced Discovery using Rules
(Requires Enterprise Plus Edition)
Managing admin credentials in today’s fast paced IT environments is challenging. Automated rules can help an IT team to save time, ensure all accounts are protected as needed, and also eliminate the potential for human error when managing passwords on sensitive accounts.
Secret Server can automatically scan your network for local admin and Active Directory service accounts, and you can set up rules for creating and managing access to these accounts. For example, in a dynamic server environment, where new machines are constantly being added and old machines are being decommissioned – Secret Server can find the new local admin accounts on your network, change the password using a privileged account (applying your organization’s password policy), then add the credentials to the repository so that only the correct administrators have access when needed. If Secret Server finds new services, tasks, or app pools running under a service account, then it can automatically link those dependencies to the appropriate credential in the repository. This level of automation reduces the time spent managing these credentials and improves your organizations security posture.
Rules ensure that your password repository accurately reflects the accounts in use on your network and that your password policies are being consistently enforced.
