About Admin By Request

Admin By Request is a cybersecurity solution designed to make comprehensive security simple. Our main goal is to enable enterprises to lock down administrative privileges across all endpoints by revoking local admin rights - while still providing means for end users to gain elevated privileges when they need it. Once local admin rights are removed based on user or group, end users are still able to gain elevated privileges when they need it via the self-service endpoint application. Privileges can be elevated per app (single app elevation), or for a set period of time (session elevation). All elevated activity undertaken by the user while they have elevated privileges is logged in the Admin By Request Auditlog, which can be accessed via a user-friendly online Admin Po...

A tool that improves security and makes life easier!

Easy to buy, easy to use, low pressure sales team. It's amazing to find a tool that does what it's supposed to at a reasonable price!

PROS

Easy to use, easy to setup, so much easier to authorize admin requests than having to remote in and type in credentials.

CONS

The only downside is we didn't implement it years earlier.

Reason for choosing Admin By Request

AdminByRequest was easy to implement on our own, which meant we learned the tool a lot better than when we pay for an implementation team.

Easiest way to achieve zero-trust on your endpoints

Everything from pre-sales to purchasing and support has been a pleasure. We have in a very short time eliminated all local admin accounts on all endpoints (including the previously fixed ones, used by IT-support).

PROS

Easy and fast deployment, great feature set (including mobile apps for admins, break glass accounts, integrated SSO (and MFA), AI approval) its all something we did't have before, and its made our security posture and administration of local admin permissions so much easier. From purchase to fully implemented a total of 2 weeks passed, including testing.

CONS

None i can think of really, it does what it does great.

Reasons for switching to Admin By Request

Features of Admin By Request like support assist, SSO / MFA integration, mobile app and AI approval.
