"Blessed are those who have privileges", Alice muttered while raising several tickets and request for change (RFC). She and her team consisting of 10 members had just started working on a new project and wanted to install several software, configure them, make some changes in registry, set environment variables etc. This meant a mammoth task of taking several approvals & maybe follow ups with her company's already overburdened IT support team.
To maintain security and comply with regulatory and compliance requirements her company followed the principle of least privilege (POLP) and provided a locked down environment to its employees.
Alice knew she could save time and effort if her team could just get administrative privilege. She raised a request to get the same.
