Secure Agent Management with Intigua

Server tool agents pose a massive, and often overlooked, security vulnerability.
The Intigua Agent Manager mitigates these risks.

Access to
Servers is too
promiscuous or restrictive

Security Risk

Maintenance of server management tools relies heavily on privileged server access: dozens of tools have separate teams responsible for each tool’s lifecycle. Over time, companies grant hundreds of people privileged access to servers. Each server represents an entry point to the network, creating a security breach. Every additional person with access raises the risk of human error and data theft.

To maintain security, tool owners either use expensive solutions (such as privileged access management or VDI) to limit access or are not given direct access to their tools, which causes them to be out-of-date and misconfigured.

Solution with Intigua Agent Manager

Intigua’s Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) can limit specific users to specific servers and specific tools. It gives full visibility, control, and troubleshooting of all servers and tools from a central portal. IT teams can view, diagnose and fix any tool via Intigua, rather than accessing individual servers directly. Intigua provides fine-grained role definitions so you can map different levels of server access, information visibility, and activity permissions as needed.

Server Tool
Agents
are Out-of-Date

Security Risk

Server tool agents, such as those for monitoring, backup and APM, are not running the latest version, don’t have all security patches installed, are not properly running or are misconfigured.

Solution with Intigua Agent Manager

Intigua allows you to set policies that define which version and patches you want deployed on all servers. Intigua will automatically update and upgrade all servers, or will notify of servers that are not updated.
You can install a new version/patch on hundreds of servers with one click

Patch
Management
Tools
are Out-of-Date

Security Risk

You rely on patch management software to apply security updates to the OS and other vulnerable components. But these security updates are only applied to machines that have the patch management system up and running -- and in a healthy state, which often it is not. For example, Microsoft’s internal patch management program revealed agent health to be one of the underlying causes of patch compliance running at 60% with variability of 20% to 40%.

Solution with Intigua Agent Manager

Intigua constantly monitors the health of patch management agents on all machines and can automatically remediate, update or upgrade all patch management agents.

Tool Agents
are Out-of-Date

Security Risk

No matter how sophisticated your security tools are, they always rely on agents. Security tool owners often don’t have direct access to these and rely on other teams for that, which creates long delays inproperly configuring them and updating them to protect against new vulnerabilities.

Solution with Intigua Agent Manager

 Intigua allows security experts to directly control security tools through its role-based access control (RBAC) capabilities, providing security teams with full visibility, control, and troubleshooting of all servers and security-related tools from a central portal. Security professionals can view, diagnose and fix any security tool via Intigua, rather than accessing individual servers directly. Intigua provides fine-grained role definitions so you can map different levels of server access, information visibility, and activity permissions as needed.
