Privileged Access Workstations

Ensuring privileged administrative environments are protected in elevated threat environments

A common factor for many cyber incidents, has been the compromise of privileged users, such as Systems Administrators, and their devices. Hardly surprising as they represent the keys to the IT kingdom.

Security controls for access to administrative systems should match the elevated threat they face. Privileged Access Workstations (PAWs) should ideally be locked-down to a known-good state, and only be used for administrative purposes, with no access to email, internet or other less-trusted resources.

Using general purpose operating systems as PAWs can be a complex and costly task. Working with UK Government, Becrypt have developed an endpoint platform specifically designed for secure desktop applications, avoiding commodity attacks, and resistant to the elevated threat that government and the critical national infrastructure are subject to.

Paradox is a security-focused operating system, that resists targeted attacks, using cryptographically-based device health measurements to prove devices remain in a known good state. Designed to support Zero Trust Architectures, Paradox allows device identity management to complement user identity management, simplifying the deployment of robust controls for access to administrative systems. Paradox supports cross domain technologies, allowing defense in depth architectures to provide strong isolation of endpoint environments from administrative systems.
