Privilege Manager for Windows

Key Benefits

Reduce your attack surface

Maintain a strong defensive posture

Control desktop admin access

Maximize user productivity


Flexible deployment

Your IT team has a bevy of installation options from which to choose, including our client-deployment wizard, a client Windows installer file (.msi) and Microsoft’s GPMC.

Client control

With the Client Data Collection Settings Wizard, you can collect client data for reporting, support discovery and leverage launch-on-demand features, as well as to enhance your endpoint privilege management capabilities.

Elevation on-demand

Take advantage of myriad options for end-user admin access to optimize productivity and security. Options types include: Instant Elevation, Self-service Elevation, Requested Elevation, Temporary Session Elevation and No Elevation.


Ensure that end users and admins are always on the same page for approval processes with email notifications.

Privileged application discovery

Collect information about the privileged applications used over your network during a specified time. With this critical knowledge, you can create a rule to allow a user without elevated privileges to launch the app they need – or choose to mark it as processed so that it will not display in the applications list for that user (unless the filter is specifically set to display it).


Stay apprised of what’s happening on your Windows desktops. You can get quick and simple status reporting of Elevation Activity, Blacklist Activity, Rules Deployment, Instant Elevation, Temporary-Session Elevation Requests and Rule Details reports.
