ManageEngine announced enhancements to Password Manager Pro, which offers protection to data centres by helping establish access controls to IT infrastructure, and seamlessly record and monitor all user actions during privileged sessions, providing complete visibility on privileged access.
“Modern day data centres present a unique challenge for IT operations” said Rajesh Ganesan, director of product management at ManageEngine. “With cyber-crime looming large, data centre operations are required to not only be robust and efficient, but also highly secure from both the external and internal threats they face.”
“Consolidating, securing, controlling, managing and monitoring privileged accounts and access have become integral aspects of Data Centre Infrastructure Management (DCIM). Keeping an eye on the actions carried out by users during privileged sessions on critical IT resources is absolutely essential, both as protective and detective security controls against cyber-attacks,” he added.
In a single, unified solution, Password Manager Pro delivers both privileged identity management and session management. It helps enterprises consolidate all the privileged accounts and centrally control them in fully automated fashion, putting an end to the convoluted manual password management practices.
Password Manager Pro helps establish access controls across data centres taking care of the access management requirements of DCIM.
Privileged sessions launched from Password Manager Pro can be completely video recorded, archived and played back to support forensic audits. By monitoring all actions performed by privileged accounts during privileged sessions, enterprises can gain complete visibility and counter threats to information security that arise from outside as well as inside the corporate firewall.
In addition, compliance regulations such as PCI-DSS, SOX, HIPAA and others mandate proper internal controls to be in place and privileged sessions be fully monitored with a view to protect sesitive data from internal abuse.
With selective sharing, role-based access controls, approval workflows, policy enforcing mechanism, real-time alerts, audit trails and first-in-class remote login and session recording capabilities, Password Manager Pro helps enterprises answer the ‘who’, ‘what’ and ‘when’ of privileged access.
