Xton Access Manager Product Update 2.3.201909292215
Today we released new update to the Xton Privileged Access Manager software. This update adds the option to approve or reject access requests by replying to approval notification email and command line interface commands to request connect or unlock access or to check request status.
Added the option to approve or reject access requests by replying to approval notification email
The update adds the option for access request approvers to reply to the approve request notification email to approve or reject access requests as an alternative of using the application WEB GUI. The option simplifies request approval and makes them quicker to perform thus facilitating adoption of just in time access control.
Approvers can reply Yes, Ok, Approve or Approved to the notification email to approve the request. Any other comment in the reply will trigger the access rejection with the comment written in the email reply.
To enable this option system owners need to specify IMAP port and optionally IMAP folder to monitor for replies in the mail server configuration (Administration / Settings / Mail Server) and to enable the feature using Administration / Settings / Parameters / Approve by Email global parameter.

Added Command Line Interface commands to request connect or unlock access or to check request status
The update brings SSH Proxy Shell CLI commands to request unlock or connect access as well as to display access request status as an alternative to using WEB GUI. This option allows system users to receive just in time access to the sensitive information using command line interface without using the application WEB Portal. Command line mode of operation will simplify routine activities of DevOps teams, Application Access Privileged Management (AAPM) operations, network administrators and IoT device management groups.
The update also extends SSH Proxy Shell Command Line Interface to include non-Unix records thus allowing system users to communicate with the system using command line accessing all different kinds of computers and devices under management.
