Download "Sudo or Sudoesn't"
When it was first conceived in 1980, the idea of the “super-user do”, (or sudo) command for Unix environments made a great deal of sense. As a tool, it provided organizations a method to get specific types of jobs done. In the 30 years since, aggressive security, compliance and audit requirements have driven the need for more robust and manageable solutions with which to deliver proper access to enterprise systems. We’ve exceeded the capability of the tool, in enterprise settings.
This white paper will highlight certain situations where sudo has its place in IT. It will also show where it sudoesn’t. In this white paper you will also learn:
- Why strict security and compliance requirements aren’t the only reason organizations are looking to enterprise-friendly sudo alternatives.
- About how today’s IT infrastructure has become a dynamic fabric, where change and flexibility is an absolute requirement.
- How moving to an enterprise-ready sudo alternative provides a highly valued productivity enhancement that can be used to quickly corral the sprawl created by new technology adoption, such as virtualization and cloud computing.
