Within a few years, Edward Snowden rocked the world by disclosing information he had gathered using his NSA administrative privileges. JitJea stands for "Just In Time, Just Enough Admin." It is a Windows PowerShell toolkit that you can use to “man up and defend yourselves” by allowing admins to perform functions without giving them admin privileges.

    Great Job Jeffrey! To me this is the most important technology MS is working on for ITPros. I know everyone is on the DSC Band Wagon which is good. However DSC doesn't cost you millions in the blink of an eye. Security Breaches can!

    This is just what is needed, kudos Jeff, I hope Microsoft reconsider further developments by adding more feature to WS2016 DSC Pull server as is in Azure Automation DSC Pull server, xJea and on prem DSC Pull server with the likes of Azure Automation DSC features will enhance value of Windows Server and  facilitate adoption of xJea
