Shell Control Box now monitors web based applications

BalaBit IT Security announced a new version of its Shell Control Box (SCB) activity monitoring appliance.

The latest version of SCB makes forensics investigations easier, faster and more cost effective by extending the list of auditable protocols – SSH, RDP, Citrix ICA, VNC, Telnet – with HTTP/HTTPS. HTTP, originally created for content transport, has been becoming increasingly popular as a GUI protocol for various tools such as management network devices, business applications and SaaS/virtual infrastructures.

Complying with data security regulations becomes smoother by extending real-time user activity monitoring to windows environments by controlling the applications that users run. To protect customers’ existing network investments, the new SCB version is able to authenticate and control network operators working with shared accounts in – still widely adopted – legacy network environments.
