Security – State Government

Mass account disable, State Government:

As a state government made sweeping infrastructure changes, security officials realized that several hundred user accounts needed to be disabled across several thousand stand-alone servers. A manual remediation effort was estimated to take weeks to implement. Andersand rapidly prototyped a cross-platform (Windows, Unix, Linux) solution leveraging IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager which successfully disabled all specified accounts. Within 48 hours of Andersand being engaged on the project, 99% of servers had successfully completed the account disables.
