Privileged User Manager ® (PUM) is the lowest cost commercial solution available for the monitoring and management of privileged accounts such as the 'root' user on UNIX and Linux systems.

PUM is licensed by subscription only. Payment of the annual subscription fee gives you:

  • a non-transferable, non-exclusive license to use the software on a specified system(s),
  • access to the support portal on this website,
  • all upgrades and enhancements,
  • telephone access to help desk,

for a twelve month period. You may pay in advance for as many years as you wish, so locking in today's pricing for future years.

For smaller users, PUM is licensed at a cost of US$365 per year per system. The minimum number of systems that may be licensed initially is three - one Access Server, one Managed Server and one Audit Server (see datasheet for definitions). Additional Managed Servers can be added at any time. (Is the minimum really three?).  You should really license more than one Access Server and more than one Audit Server for purposes of redundancy.

Larger clients may take advantage of our volume and corporate licensing pricing models. At the current time these are set as follows:

Up to 100 systems - US$10,000 per year.

Up to 500 systems - US$25,000 per year.

Unlimited number of systems - US$50,000 per year.
