What is Management of Administration Privileges?

To top

Management of Administration Privileges is an ACSC Essential 8 Strategy which gives each user the minimal administrative privileges on their computer. This is to stop hackers from easily gaining overall administration rights to computers and either stealing files or installing malware and ransomware. Management of Administration Privileges is included in cybersecurity packages from GOLD upwards. You can read more about Management of Administration Privileges benefits here.

To manage this function, Jam Cyber utilises an application called PolicyPak. This sits on all users’ computers and enables us to manage overarching administrative requirements, such as those needed for product installation.  PolicyPak is installed as part of the Remote Monitoring & Management (RMM) Platform installation. Please view the RMM Install Guide here: RMM Install Guide
