Viewfinity's Newest Privilege Management Release Dramatically Raises Level of Manageability, Reducing Burden on IT Through Automation

Breakthrough Automation Solves Policy Proliferation, Minimizes the Time and Cost of Managing Privileges, Enables IT to Increase Number of Standard Users Without Disruption (May 14, 2012)

WALTHAM, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/14/12 -- Viewfinity (, the leading provider of privilege management solutions, today announced Viewfinity Privilege Management 4.0, a compelling and major upgrade to the company's flagship product. With this release, enterprises have a new, automated approach previously not available in any solution for managing rights and privileges for standard users on Windows endpoints and servers. Viewfinity's new, intelligent automation identifies commonly needed privileges across the entire user base within an organization and automatically aggregates privilege needs, then creates a single policy to address the common need for a collective group of users. This containment of policy proliferation results in enormous time, cost and management savings. Another major announcement in this release is Viewfinity's Least Privilege Control for Data.

"The one vulnerability we can't easily patch are end-users. The single most important way to improve endpoint security is to run more of your Windows users without administrator rights," said Neil MacDonald, VP & Gartner Fellow. "Removal of administrative rights from end users helps IT security and operations teams to minimize the ability of malicious code to cause damage to Windows system files or sensitive areas of the machine."

"IT professionals agree that removing administrative rights is a smart practice for reducing security risks, and yet they know there has got to be a better way to deal with the productivity disruptions," said Leonid Shtilman, CEO and co-founder of Viewfinity. "Organizations that have removed administrator rights needed an automated method for controlling the number of policies being created so they can reduce policy proliferation and its associated increased workload. We've drastically improved our product to take the burden off IT by automating many of the steps needed to setup policies to manage privileges. These measures enable IT to increase the number of standard users without interrupting productivity."

Viewfinity's 4.0 version represents a breakthrough in the way endpoints are managed with an automated approach to privilege management that reduces the number of policies in an environment by an order of magnitude.

"With our newest software release, there is no reason to grant users administrator rights," said Gil Rapaport, President and co-founder of Viewfinity. "Our innovative version 4.0 solution now provides organizations with the ability to implement fully transparent, automatic privilege management, raising endpoint protection through privilege management to a low maintenance, fundamental and necessary layer of security."

Least Privileges for Data
Viewfinity's privilege control for data provides the much needed ability to implement least privileges at the data level by elevating or reducing privileges/permissions on folders, files and shares. Additionally, features are mapped to support compliance mandates and provides greater compliance reporting through a dedicated reporting section addressing SOX, HIPAA, PCI DSS, FDCC, and other industry compliance requirements. These reports provide for easy access to and the delivery of pertinent information to risk management professionals. Viewfinity's Video Audit feature provides an option to capture a screen recorded video of end-user and privileged user activity based upon a particular application or policy.

Viewfinity Privilege Management 4.0 GA is now available. Viewfinity is the only solution that offers three implementation options: via the company's SaaS/Cloud platform, through on-premise servers as a private Cloud, or within Group Policy.
