LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - May 13, 2014) - Lieberman Software Corporation is introducing new privileged user management (PUM) capabilities in Enterprise Random Password Manager™ (ERPM) at Microsoft TechEd 2014 in Houston, TX this week. The new PUM capabilities allow users to launch cross-platform applications in a secure environment, where elevated operations are automatically authorized, recorded and audited. ERPM now offers connectors for a broad array of cloud provider portals, SAAS vendors and social media platforms.
"With this ERPM upgrade, users who need secure and audited privileged access -- whether in the cloud, locally, or on the web -- can now have it," said Philip Lieberman, President and CEO of Lieberman Software. "While other PUM products use proprietary standards, our new offering provides an open integration platform where customers can add systems and applications of their choice -- often in less than an hour."
"ERPM is also easy to scale to large enterprise environments," Lieberman continued. "This can be accomplished by simply adding Microsoft Server 2012 Terminal Services licenses and Windows machines as needed, or through the recently announced Microsoft Azure RemoteApp."
With ERPM's new application launcher, users can access remote applications and web sites through a secure local server. Access is granted using passwords provided by ERPM's encrypted credentials vault, and activities are documented through built-in session recording systems.
About ERPM and Privilege Management
ERPM is an established enterprise-level privileged identity management solution that automatically discovers, secures and audits privileged accounts, both on-premises and in the cloud. With its new privileged user management capabilities, ERPM now also allows users to securely perform tasks that require elevated permissions, with fine-grained control and auditing.
With ERPM, an organization's powerful privileged accounts are only available to delegated users on a temporary, "need-to-know" basis -- preventing unauthorized, anonymous access to critical systems.
According to the 2014 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report, privilege abuse is today's top insider threat. This threat emanates from trusted users abusing their own privileges, as well as hacking techniques that allow unauthorized users to gain elevated privileges and bypass security controls.
ERPM Availability and Roadmap
The new version of ERPM supports integrated use of SSH keys for authentication, discovery and propagation of privileged identities, including support for SSH tunnels.
Other new ERPM features include:
- Integrations with JIRA and OTRS service management systems, to verify trouble tickets and privileged access requirements in real-time.
- A revised console that provides granular access delegation duties based on specific user roles and responsibilities.
- A broader range of RDP experiences, allowing users to take advantage of full remote desktop connection and Network Level Authentication support.
Management of VMware accounts will be added in a minor update in the coming weeks. The company upgrades ERPM with new functionality approximately twice per year.
The new ERPM version has been running in customer beta sites since 2013, and is being publicly demonstrated for the first time in booth 1209 at Microsoft TechEd this week.
