Shell Control Box is a user monitoring appliance that controls privileged access to remote IT systems, records activities in searchable, movie-like audit trails, and prevents malicious actions. SCB is a quickly deployable enterprise device, completely independent from clients and servers – integrating seamlessly into existing networks. SCB is a core component of the Contextual Security Intelligence Suite. It captures the activity data necessary for user profiling and enables full user session drill down for forensic investigation in CSI.User.
Central policy enforcement
SCB acts as a centralized authentication and access-control point in your IT environment which improves security and reduces user administration costs. The granular access management helps you to control who can access what and when on your servers.
Advanced protection of sensitive data
SCB perfectly isolates your sensitive systems from unknown intruders or from non-authorized users. In addition, it tracks all authorized access to sensitive data and provides with actionable information in the case of human errors or unusual behavior.
Prevention of malicious activities
SCB monitors privileged user sessions in real-time and detects anomalies as they occur. In case of detecting a suspicious user activity (for example entering a destuctive command, such as the “delete”), SCB can send you an alert or immediately terminate the connection.
Tighter employee & partner control
SCB audits “who did what”, for example on your database or SAP servers. Aware of this, your employees will do their work with a greater sense of responsibility leading to a reduction in human errors. By having an easily interpreted, tamper-proof record, finger-pointing issues can be eliminated.
Faster, cost-effective supervisory audits
SCB makes all user activity traceable by recording them in high quality, tamper-proof and easily searchable audit trails. The movie-like audit trails ensure that all the necessary information is accessible for ad-hoc analyses or custom activity reports.
Lower troubleshooting & forensics costs
When something wrong happens, everybody wants to know the real story. Analyzing thousands of text-based logs can be a nightmare and may require the participation of external experts. The ability to easily reconstruct user sessions allows you to shorten investigation time and avoid unexpected cost.
