Successful technology audit of privileged access management

E-DMZ Security : 02 December, 2009  (New Product)
Ovum Butler Group acknowledges e-DMZ's TPAM suite through successful audit of security system for the management of privileged account access
e-DMZ Security, experts in privileged user and privileged access management, have announced the successful technology audit of its Total Privileged Access Management (TPAM) Suite by the Ovum Butler Group, the IT End User division of Datamonitor Plc and a leading provider of Information Technology research, analysis, and advice. The recently enhanced TPAM Suite allows users to remotely manage complete user privilege/access with the ability to record sessions and control, limit and delegate privileged user access down to specific commands across both Unix/Linux and Windows server environments.

"The Privileged Account Management solutions market place is developing fast, fuelled by organizations' continuing need to fully address compliance and security challenges," said Ovum Senior Analyst Alan Rodger. "With the TPAM Suite, e-DMZ Security meets these needs admirably, and offers an in-depth, highly value-adding range of functionality. The company has already acquired an impressive installed base, and we evaluated this solution as being among the leading products in this emerging market area."

The technology audit included the analysis of TPAM's four solution modules:

* Privileged Password Management - supports password release to authorized users and the changing of passwords based on rules. It can enforce releases of passwords on request, allowing one password release at a time to access a particular resource and to a single requestor. This establishes a non-refutable audit trail linking a single individual to definite knowledge of the privileged password during a particular time period.

* Application Password Management - enables applications (rather than users) to access privileged credentials and undertake application-to-application and application-to-system authentication. A Command Line Interface (CLI) and Application Programming Interface (API) are available for application integration, enabling TPAM capabilities to replace the extremely insecure and inflexible practice of using hard-coded passwords to authenticate applications to each other and between applications to systems.

* Privileged Session Management - acts as a session gateway or a proxy between the requestor and the target system, recording all the actions undertaken with TPAM by users and managers, and facilitating video-like playback of actions for audit purposes.

* Privileged Command Management - augments the functionality of Privileged Session Management by restricting the commands that can be executed on the target system.

"With our experience in providing leading edge privilege access control solutions, we are pleased to be acknowledged by Ovum Butler Group for our innovation," said Kris Zupan, CEO for e-DMZ Security. "This recognition coupled with our 75 percent growth validates e-DMZ Security as a standard bearer in the market, and positions us for continued success as we head into 2010."

Built off of the eGuardPost and PAR appliances, the TPAM Suite provides organizations the flexibility to solve the critical issues associated with compliant privileged control in a modular fashion from privileged password management and application password management to privileged session management and privileged command management. By allowing enterprises to add modules and capabilities as they grow, they are able to deploy security solutions that fall within their budgetary constraints while maintaining their compliance with SOX, PCI, HIPAA, GLBA, Basel II and other regulations.
