A number of methods are employed to ensure the integrity and secure access of audit log's, session recording and data deemed to be critical or sensitive e.g. via encryption and limiting access and visibility of data such as session recordings to within PrivX only.

What are the best practices for publishing PrivX to users over Internet?
Best practices or rules are similar to those that apply to any externally facing web application holding/providing access to critical or sensitive data:

Deploy PrivX behind a Web Application Firewall (WAF) or a similar layer 7 defence mechanism which can monitor and limit traffic to mitigate the risk of DOS/DDOS attacks. PrivX has built-in functionality to throttle login attempts however a WAF is recommended to ensure such attacks are detected/packets dropped before they can reach the application.

In addition deploy PrivX behind a load balancer which terminates TLS for end users.

For native clients & bastioned access it is recommended to limit the access based on source IP/network segments.

Enable Multi Factor Authentication (MFA) for all users or at a minimum those who login into PrivX from remote locations/over the internet.
