Privileged User Manager consists of a Framework Manager, where you manage and configure the system, and an agent, which is installed on each machine where you want to monitor and control superuser access.
Figure 1-1 Framework Manager
From the Home page, you have access to six administrative consoles:
Compliance Auditor: Proactive auditing tool that pulls events from the event logs for analysis, according to predefined rules. It pulls filtered audit events at hourly, daily, weekly or monthly intervals. This enables auditors to view prefiltered security transactions, play back recordings of user activity, and record notes for compliance purposes. In an era of increasing regulatory compliance requirements, the ability to supply demonstrable audit compliance at any time provides a more secure system and reduces audit risk.
Framework User Manager: Manages users who log in to the Framework Manager through role-based grouping.
Hosts: Centrally manages Privileged User Manager installation and updates, load-balancing, redundancy of resources, and host alerts.
Reporting: Provides easy access and search capability for event logs and allows you review and color-code user keystroke activity through the Command Risk Analysis Engine.
Command Control: Uses an intuitive graphical interface to manage security policies for privilege management.
Package Manager: Lets you easily update any Privileged User Manager application.
