As the IT infrastructures for today’s large Cloud Service Providers, Managed Service Providers and Internet Service Providers expand beyond hundreds of thousands of systems, the ability to manage and secure these dynamic environments grows increasingly complex. In response to this market development, Lieberman Software Corporation announced a major upgrade to Enterprise Random Password Manager (ERPM), the company’s flagship Privileged Identity Management (PIM) product, designed as the industry’s first Security-as-a-Service PIM platform.
In its new evolution as a service platform, ERPM now provides full automation and programmatic orchestration of privileged credentials, certificates, pin codes, passcodes and other sensitive data generated on a massive scale by large multi-tenant organizations. With ERPM, the discovery, auditing and access control of credentials and certificates in the world’s largest enterprises and service providers can now be managed entirely by machines, rather than through direct human interaction.
“Our philosophy has always been that automation is the only way to take control over the powerful privileged identities widespread throughout modern IT environments,” said Philip Lieberman, President and CEO of Lieberman Software. “Only by deploying automated security solutions can organizations locate and remediate weaknesses faster than nation-state attackers and other criminal hackers can exploit them.
“The challenge is in managing and securing these identities at massive scale. When gas meters, water meters, cable boxes, desktop boxes, cell phones, routers and more are all taken into account, the number of systems that need to be managed can extend into the millions. A truly secure environment requires all identities on all devices to be discovered and managed. To that end, we’ve developed ERPM as a solution that can automatically manage the entire privileged identity and certificate management lifecycle - from the auto-discovery of each privileged account to the propagation of password changes throughout the enterprise - without manual involvement.”
To accomplish this, ERPM’s newest version offers two interfaces – with Windows PowerShell® and SOAP web services – that provide a programmatic option for identity management.
Lieberman Software has been an ISV since 1994 and originally developed the first tools for the privileged identity management market more than 10 years ago. ERPM was the first product capable of automatically locating all of the privileged accounts in large, dispersed enterprises, and then securing and tracking each of these accounts. Today, ERPM helps organizations in all major vertical markets worldwide prevent unauthorized users and malicious programs from gaining unrestricted and anonymous access to systems with highly sensitive data. All of ERPM’s previous capabilities remain in the new version of the product.
Lieberman Software is exhibiting this new ERPM functionality in booth 5 at the Gartner Security and Risk Management Summit in National Harbor, MD this week.
