ManageEngine Launches Privileged Password Management Software for Managed Service Providers
April 2013 by Emmanuelle Lamandé
ManageEngine announced the immediate Beta availability of MSP Edition of its Privileged Password Management Software Password Manager Pro.
Password Manager Pro MSP Edition allows MSPs to centrally manage the privileged passwords of their clients through a fully automated and policy-driven approach.
The new edition enables MSPs to manage the passwords of each of their clients separately from a single management console. Passwords can be securely shared between MSP administrators and their respective customers, making sure that users only get access to the passwords they own or are shared with. The solution offers the flexibility to entrust the control of the password vault to the MSP administrator, the end user or both as desired. The IT policy of the respective organisation can be enforced through automated password resets.
In addition, users requiring access to passwords can be enforced to go through password request-release workflow resulting in tighter access controls. All activities with respect to password access are audited and reports can be generated on ‘who’ accessed ‘what’ passwords ‘when’. When a technician at the MSP-end leaves the organisation, all passwords accessed by the technician can be automatically changed on remote resources, easily eliminating the chances of potential misuse in future.
The MSP edition also features all the security measures of the existing ManageEngine Password Manager Pro Premium Edition.
Mobile Access - Secure retrieval of privileged passwords and approval of access requests on the go from mobile phones
AD/LDAP Integration - Users or user groups can be imported from Windows Active Directory or LDAP from the customer network and the authentication mechanism leveraged
