Lieberman Software Corporation announced a new partnership with Viewfinity, a provider of privileged management and application controls. The alliance integrates Lieberman Software’s Enterprise Random Password ManagerT (ERPM) with Viewfinity’s Privilege Management to control and audit privileged account and privileged user access to systems, applications and devices throughout the IT infrastructure.
ERPM from Lieberman Software automatically locates every privileged account in the enterprise, frequently changes each account’s password to a unique and complex value, and deploys the password changes wherever they are used in the data center. The solution provides new accountability by showing precisely who on the IT staff had access to sensitive data, at what time and for what stated purpose.
Viewfinity’s Privilege Management allows IT administrators to create a "Least Privilege" environment, removing wide-scale administrative rights and enforcing policies to grant elevated permissions on a flexible, granular basis. As a result, Viewfinity enhances corporate security and productivity by allowing users to perform all of their required duties with the least privilege necessary.
Together, these products ensure that powerful privileged account passwords are not disclosed to end-users and are granted only to authorised IT staff for a limited time. Least privilege compliance is enforced by managing permissions for privileged accounts through the elevation of privileges for applications or by reducing permissions for privileged users. A full audit trail of user and administrative access and activity is logged and can be provided to auditors to verify compliance with major regulatory mandates such as PCI-DSS, HIPAA, CAG-8, FISMA and others.
