WALLIX Bastion

WALLIX Bastion is a PAM solution that offers the fundamentals of session management, password management and access management as well as more advanced features such as PEDM and privileged management for machines and applications. The product also provides detailed session recording, auditing and monitoring capabilities for common deployment models. In line with more recent demands for more secure remote working, the complimentary module WALLIX BestSafe has extended support for secure access for those not working in a conventional office environment.
