Lieberman Software Updates ERPM as Security-as-a-Service Platform

By Kasey Schefflin-Emrich

Identity and security management provider Lieberman Software has revealed that it has made a major upgrade to its Privileged Identity Management product, Enterprise Random Password Manager, in an attempt to make it easier to manage and secure the IT infrastructures of cloud, managed and Internet service providers.

The ERPM product has transformed into the industry's first Security-as-a-Service PIM platform, offering full automation and programmatic orchestration of sensitive data generated on a massive scale such as privileged credentials, certificates, pin codes and pass codes. This will help organizations prevent unauthorized users and malicious programs from accessing their systems, and thus all of its highly sensitive data.

The upgrade has eliminated the need for direct human interaction in discovering, auditing and accessing control of credentials and certificates among large enterprises and service providers, as those things can now be managed by machines.

"Our philosophy has always been that automation is the only way to take control over the powerful privileged identities widespread throughout modern IT environments," said Philip Lieberman, president and CEO of Lieberman Software. "Only by deploying automated security solutions can organizations locate and remediate weaknesses faster than nation-state attackers and other criminal hackers can exploit them."

Lieberman said the challenge was in developing a solution that would fit a massive scale, especially when taking into consideration things that are comprised on numerous systems such as gas and water meters, cable boxes, routers and cell phones. He explained that in order to have "a truly secure environment," all identities on all devices need to be discovered and managed --which is exactly what ERPM does. The product, as said by Lieberman, "can automatically manage the entire privileged identity and certificate management lifecycle -- from the auto-discovery of each privileged account to the propagation of password changes throughout the enterprise -- without manual involvement."

While the updated ERPM includes all of its previous capabilities, the new version now features two interfaces, Windows PowerShell and SOAP Web services, both which offer a programmatic option for identity management.
