For Windows environments, it is critical that organizations can delegate administration and establish granular privileges quickly and efficiently to restrict administrators so they only access the servers and resources required to perform their job and only during the approved times to perform specific tasks. 

This white paper examines the security, compliance and efficiency issues surrounding least privilege management for Windows servers, and explains where native Windows tools fall short. It then describes how Centrify’s DirectAuthorize component for Windows eliminates the problem of too many users having broad and unmanaged administrative powers by delivering secure delegation of privileged access and granularly enforcing who can perform what administrative functions.
