Lieberman Software Provides Unified Solution To Control Privileged Access In On-Premises, Cloud And Hybrid Environments
Privileged Access Management Platform Adds New Layer of Security Control for Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, IBM SoftLayer, Rackspace Public Cloud and Force.com
LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 24, 2016) - Lieberman Software Corporation today announced significant new cloud security capabilities incorporated in its Privileged Access Management (PAM) product, Enterprise Random Password Manager™ (ERPM). The product now protects critical privileged identities for sensitive IT assets in large cloud environments. ERPM can enumerate and manage cloud platform accounts for Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure Active Directory, IBM SoftLayer, Rackspace Public Cloud and Force.com. It is the first product on the market capable of managing and securing the privileged identities on all of these cloud platforms.
"We're especially excited about the expansion of our cloud support in this release," said Jonathan Sander, Vice President of Product Strategy for Lieberman Software. "Not only can we be in the cloud securing the infrastructure, platforms, and applications there, but now we can discover and secure the accounts and systems that run the underlying cloud platforms themselves. We're securing the cloud inside and out."
ERPM has secured privileged identities in on-premises enterprises for years by automatically discovering, securing and auditing privileged accounts on endpoints throughout the IT infrastructure -- including physical and virtual operating systems, applications, databases, web services, tasks and more. ERPM now extends these same capabilities to the cloud.
By continuously rotating privileged credentials, ERPM blocks intruders who penetrate the network from moving laterally throughout the environment. It does so by time-limiting how long a captured credential can be exploited. Even if an attacker compromises a credential, it cannot be leveraged to leapfrog from system to system, and anonymously steal sensitive data along the way.
Privileged Access Management for the Cloud
Effectively managing privileged credentials is especially crucial in large cloud environments. As dynamic cloud infrastructures grow, so does the presence of privileged identities. These identities must be secured and audited because they hold elevated permission to access data, run programs, and change system configuration settings.
According to Gartner, "It is a security best practice to frequently scan your infrastructure to discover any new accounts introduced with excess privileges. This becomes even more important for dynamic environments that change rapidly, such as those using virtualization on a large scale, or hybrid IT environments that include cloud infrastructure. Organizations should consider using autodiscovery features offered by many PAM tools to enable automated discovery of unmanaged systems and accounts across the range of infrastructure."1
ERPM customers can now connect to their cloud environment and discover the user accounts defined in the cloud account settings. They can then protect those accounts with frequent credential randomization -- just like they do for on-premises systems. By providing a cloud, on-premises and hybrid solution, ERPM allows the flexibility that organizations need to meet their operational and financial needs.
