IT professionals depend on server remote access devices
to manage essential datacenter functions from anywhere, without needing to be physically present where your hardware resides. HP ProLiant servers’ Integrated Lights-Out (iLO)
feature allow you to manage, patch and rebuild systems from any location, regardless of whether the computer operating system is functioning.
The HP iLO products make it possible for remote IT staff to:
• Access servers’ local administrative consoles,
• Reboot the server,
• Power on and off hardware,
• View the condition of power supplies, cooling fans, and other critical components,
• Install and update BIOS
Failure to change the default privileged account passwords on their servers’ remote access devices can pose a serious threat. Left unchanged, anyone with access to the management network and knowledge of widely-known default passwords can have anonymous, unaudited access and management control of any server at any time.
Secure HP ProLiant Servers
Lieberman Software’s privileged identity management solutions Enterprise Random Password Manager (ERPM)
and Random Password Manager (RPM)
are the first products to continuously secure all HP iLO devices in your datacenter. This safeguards the privileged login credentials of each device while providing secure access through an audited web portal.
ERPM and RPM discover all of the HP lights-out management cards in the network and then update each password with cryptographically strong, unique credentials. The internal controls and release workflows within the Lieberman Software products provide a “check-out” and “check-in” process that automatically changes the passwords between usages, assuring a time-limited access to these powerful consoles.
Maintaining Regulatory Compliance
Most corporate and government organizations are required to proactively manage privileged account passwords, including those found on server remote access cards. Security compliance standards such as PCI-DSS, HIPAA, FISMA, and Sarbanes-Oxley require that organizations maintain documented controls for the release, use and changing of privileged identities. The lack of automated products to mass-manage and control privileged access to these critical devices lead to negative audit findings, costly fines and damaging data breaches.
With ERPM and RPM you’ll know precisely who had access to each of your privileged accounts, when and for what purpose. These solutions secure not only the privileged logins used to access remote access cards, but also administrative user accounts and the privileged accounts stored by applications and services to access sensitive data on your network.
This solution to manage HP iLO devices is available now to supported customers.
