ManageEngine, the real-time IT management company, today announced key enhancements to Password Manager Pro, the industry-leading enterprise privileged password management solution, at RSA Conference 2013 being held in San Francisco, 25th February- 1st March, 2013. Password Manager Pro’s new iPhone app lets IT security professionals manage privileged passwords while on the go, while integrations with third-party apps streamline password management activities. ManageEngine will demonstrate Password Manager Pro along with the rest of its IT security solutions portfolio in booth 2641 at the event.
The proliferation of IT assets is driving an exponential increase in the number of privileged passwords handled by enterprise IT and network divisions. Datacentres, in particular, present a daunting challenge for IT operations given their complex mix of databases, network devices, applications, and physical and virtual systems. With cyber-crimes looming large, datacentre operations are required to not only be robust and efficient but also highly secure to ensure business continuity and data integrity.
“IT and network administrators who physically move into datacentres require secure access to privileged passwords to log-in to resources,” said Rajesh Ganesan, director of product management at ManageEngine. “The tight access restrictions of the datacentre mean administrators need a secure way to retrieve passwords from mobile devices, at times without internet connectivity. They need a way to review and approve password access requests while on the go. The Password Manager Pro iPhone app meets both challenges head on.”
Mobilising privileged password management
The Password Manager Pro iPhone app literally puts privileged password management in the administrators’ hands — anytime, anywhere. It optimises ease-of-use without compromising data security. The iPhone app is as secure as the Password Manager Pro installation and uses the same AES-256 encryption. Further, the iPhone app is guarded by an additional passphrase entered by the user. Even if the mobile device is stolen, passwords cannot be deciphered in plain text.
The Password Manager Pro iPhone app also works offline, so users can access privileged passwords without an internet connection. To ensure users have the latest data for offline access, the iPhone app has a provision to synchronise passwords whenever the administrators go online.
The mobile app makes use of Password Manager Pro’s REST API that also facilitates integration with any third-party application, helping IT organisations establish a more centralized and integrated privileged password management practice. For example, Password Manager Pro can be integrated with BMC Remedy Service Desk and other help desk and ticketing systems. Similarly, the real-time traps/syslog messages generated by Password Manager Pro can be sent to third-party SIEM tools, so the Password Manager Pro data can be analysed and correlated with other network events to create a more secure infrastructure with an in-depth and holistic view of overall network activity.
Pricing and availability
Password Manager Pro 6.9 (beta) is available immediately. In addition to a fully functional, free 30-day evaluation edition, Password Manager Pro is available as a free edition, standard edition and premium edition. Standard edition prices start at $495 per year for two administrators. Premium edition prices start at $1,195 per year for five administrators. All editions can be downloaded directly from the ManageEngine website at http://www.manageengine.com/products/passwordmanagerpro/download.html.

We heard for many years how developing nations would be able to develop mobile-phone networks quickly, perhaps even leapfrog developed nations, because their lack of traditional, wired networks would not inhibit them from deploying the new technology. Now there is talk of history repeating itself with the Industrial Internet--a key aspect of the emerging Internet of Things. For example, Guo Ping, Deputy Chairman of the Board of Chinese electronics giant Huawei, said in a recent report from the World Economic Forum, "The Industrial Internet will afford emerging markets a unique opportunity ...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
