Lieberman Software Extends Privileged Identity Management to Cloud Infrastructure

Lieberman Software Corporation today announced a significant enhancement to Enterprise Random Password Manager™ (ERPM) that provides new levels of visibility and control for cloud service providers and their customers. ERPM now delivers fine-grain management features to protect every asset in the cloud infrastructure – including physical and virtual computers and network appliances, hypervisors, databases, middleware, line-of-business applications, and more. With this version of ERPM, cloud service providers can assure both customers and IT auditors that privileged access to sensitive data is continuously monitored and secured.

“Enterprises are eyeing significant cost savings potential in migrating to the cloud, but are concerned about data privacy and security,” said Philip Lieberman, president of Lieberman Software. “As cloud service providers expand they quickly outgrow ad-hoc processes, such as scripts, to control administrative access to the IT infrastructure. Lieberman Software meets a vital need by ensuring that only authorized individuals can access sensitive data or change configuration settings that could disrupt critical cloud services, while also providing authoritative audit trails.”

As the popularity of cloud services increases, so do concerns for data privacy and security. The on-demand cloud service model can necessitate rapid changes in physical and virtual infrastructure, decentralized data centers, and quickly evolving lines of responsibility and control for IT staff. Ad-hoc processes that rely on manual changes and scripts to secure privileged access can fail to keep up with these rapid changes. And, these manual processes risk service disruptions should they not account for each process interdependency and carefully synchronize every password change.

Securing Cloud Computing Environments

ERPM continuously discovers, secures, and grants fully audited, role-based administrative access to physical and virtual IT assets within the cloud infrastructure. ERPM is the only privileged identity management solution with the essential features needed to secure the largest and most decentralized IT enterprises in all vertical markets. Key differentiators include:

  • Continuous auto-discovery and propagation of privileged credentials as new physical and virtual systems are brought online;
  • Direct authentication with all leading directory services to instantly maintain correct levels of access as personnel roles change;
  • Zone Processing for reliable discovery and enforcement over high-latency WAN links and inside network DMZs; and
  • Deployment on the service provider’s choice of SQL Server or Oracle 11g databases for unmatched transparency and reliability.

The new version of ERPM adds the capability for cloud service providers to delegate different levels of privileged access, audit and compliance reporting to end-customers. With this feature, service providers can offer customers the option to grant or revoke access to sensitive systems on a time-limited and audited basis, and to see comprehensive operational reports or time-based analysis of administrative access by user, system and account. With its new dual-control multiple tenancy, ERPM secures all cloud stacks at both the physical layer (privileged system access) and the application layer. New features for this release were developed in partnership with large-scale cloud service providers, whose demands for real-time discovery and fine-grained access control are among the most stringent in the industry.

“The core of ERPM is its transparent, scalable architecture,” said Lieberman. “We understand that cloud service providers have complex and dynamic environments, so we offer sophisticated discovery and correlation technology that takes the management burden away from already overworked IT staff. We also help these customers advance to a state of continuous auditing and reporting when it comes to their privileged identities.”

Lieberman Software will be exhibiting the new version of ERPM in booth 1033 at RSA Conference 2010 in San Francisco, CA this week.

When Enterprises started adopting Hadoop-based Big Data environments over the last ten years, they were mainly on-premise deployments. Organizations would spin up and manage large Hadoop clusters, where they would funnel exabytes or petabytes of unstructured data.However, over the last few years the economics of maintaining this enormous infrastructure compared with the elastic scalability of viable cloud options has changed this equation. The growth of cloud storage, cloud-managed big data e...
