Xton Access Manager Product Update 2.3.202107261630
Today we released new update to the Xton Privileged Access Manager software. This update added Oracle SQL Proxy to provide zero-trust native client access to Oracle RDBMS, added Local Group Membership report, and added the option to subscribe to generation of the system reports to a shared folder.
Added Oracle SQL Proxy
Oracle SQL Proxy allows users to use native Oracle clients such as SQLplus, SQL Developer, Dell Toad Oracle, Squirrel, etc. running on their client desktop computers to connect to remote Oracle RDBMS without disclosing scheme credentials. The SQL Proxy provides role-based permissions, allows users to request a workflow to the database, audits the access to the database, records SQL traffic and provides support for notifications about session events.
While other PAM products claim to support secure database connections, they typically involve the use of a jump server which merely limits access to a DB client running on another host. With XTAM’s Oracle SQL Proxy, a user can run their own database client directly from their own workstation while the secure session runs through XTAM where permissions and workflows are enforced and session events are tracked and monitored. Using our SQL proxy, management of the schema credentials remains locked in the XTAM vault and MFA can also be enabled to provide a secondary means of authentication to further secure access to these privileged sessions.
Read help articles using the links below to plan, design, configure, test and implement Oracle SQL Proxy in your network to secure database connections to the sensitive data for developers and database administrators.
Added Local Group Membership Report
The update added Local Group Membership Report that shows local groups and all members of the groups on global and folder levels. The report allows system owners to quickly analyze dynamics of the permission and request approval structure of the privileged access.
The report is available on the Administration / Local Groups page using the button Local Group Membership Report. The report displays all local groups with all members in each group in a single flat view. Report export to CVS and Excel formats allow system administrators to filter and pivot the data in the way required for different presentations.
Added subscription to report generation to shared folder
The update the option to subscribe to generation of the system reports to a shared folder. The option allows external auditors to review system configuration and user activity without the actual access to the system. The option also simplifies aggregation of the privileged activity with other data sources in the network.
To subscribe to the report generation into the shared folder, select Save to Folder option when subscribing to scheduled reports delivery to change the report destination to the shared folder instead of email delivery.
