How Managing Privileged Access Reduces the Risk of a Data Breach
By Derek Brink
Aberdeen Group

"When it comes to reducing the window of vulnerability for data breaches, Aberdeen Group’s analysis of current enterprise practices in managing privileged access shows that they are virtually always too little, too late.

SWOT Assessment: Lieberman Software Enterprise Random Password Manager
By Andrew Kellett

"ERPM provides PIM technology, but steers clear of the vault-based password management controls that most PIM vendors offer. Vault-based protection did not stop many of the recently reported, high-profile data breaches that have affected all sectors of industry. Lieberman has chosen an automated discovery and remediation approach that limits cyber-attack opportunities."

"ERPM is highly scalable through its multitier architecture, which can use zone processors to change passwords on a massively parallel fashion. It is also one of few vendors that supports concurrent (not just ad hoc) discovery of privileged accounts and systems, including from hypervisors. This makes the solution particularly attractive to very large organizations."

By Lori Robinson

"Privileged accounts enjoy elevated or unrestricted access to highly sensitive or critical business systems, applications and services; yet these accounts are often mismanaged and unmonitored. IT organizations are under increased business and regulatory pressure to control access to these accounts. Privileged account management (PAM) technologies help organizations control access to privileged accounts through policy-based access controls, password management, command filtering, audit and monitoring capabilities."

Advisory Note: Privilege Management
By Martin Kuppinger
Kuppinger Cole

"Data theft on a large scale is most likely caused by users with elevated rights, typically administrative users. Thus it comes as no surprise that PxM is not only a topic which CIOs and CISOs have to look at but which auditors and regulators also have on their agenda. Compared with other types of IT technologies, the risk mitigation impacts of PxM as well as the audit relevance are exceptionally high..."


Lieberman reaches downmarket, looks to facelift for enterprise customers
By Steve Coplan
451 Group

Lieberman Software is close to releasing a product it is calling Password Spreadsheet Manager, which allows enterprises that currently manually manage privileged accounts and identities in the form of shared spreadsheets to automate and secure the management of credentials and passwords. The release is not a move to shift focus from the high end of the market. In fact, Lieberman is at work on reinforcing its strengths in auto-discovery, scalability and correlation, and has a facelift planned for its administrative console and dashboards.
