You are probably reading this because you know you have a problem. Either your company allows users to maintain local administrator rights
or you have to do countless remote installs. We can solve this for you with little effort and, at the same time, free up your IT resources.
We have customers with tens of thousands of users, who have tried to implement whitelisting solutions, but failed
and came to us, because this way you can only see the world in retrospect. Your users will hate you for blocking their workday.
Even with unlimited resources, no one can predict what your users need today. Instead of speculating on this by creating
whitelists ahead of time, Admin By Request works proactively the other way around. If your users start to install software,
the Admin By Request client intercepts this and installs the software with a full audit trail - without the users being
administrators. It's like the self-checkout at the supermarket.
It is also safer than traditional whitelisting solutions - just because an administrator whitelists a file doesn't mean it is safe.
We real-time scan files with more than 35 anti-virus engines before allowing those files to run with administrative privileges.
Nothing needs to be installed or changed on-premise. Users do not need to be re-educated and no one in IT needs to spend endless
hours on whitelists or remote installs. All you have to do is to deploy the Admin By Request client software.
This ease of use is why we are the fastest growing PAM solution in the world.

In this blog, PowerON CTO Steve Beaumont weighs up the options available when it comes to managing local admin rights: the pros and cons of manually addressing the issue internally vs. implementing a Privileged Access Management (PAM) solution to do it for you.
The disrupted past few years have made it very difficult to plan ahead. But valuable lessons learnt throughout 2020 and 2021 can be applied to help us plan for 2022 – not least, lessons on cybersecurity.
In 2021 it took organizations an average of 212 days to discover a data breach - that’s a long time compared to the 24-48 hours it takes a hacker to compromise domain admin once they’ve gained initial access to your system. Here’s how to disrupt the attack timeline so they can’t escalate up the ranks of privilege undetected.
