Random Password Manager: Capabilities

Random Password Manager (RPM) automatically strengthens, monitors and stores the privileged account passwords in your cross-platform network.

It helps you achieve regulatory compliance with your security and operational auditor's privileged identity management and shared account password management requirements.

Here’s how RPM can help secure your IT infrastructure:

Reduce Risks from Hackers and Malware

Organizations that deploy RPM are better protected against unauthorized personnel and malicious programs attempting to access their sensitive data. That’s because intruders are confronted with RPM’s unique, cryptographically complex privileged account passwords on computers, network appliances, and applications, and can’t easily spread their attacks to other systems.

RPM helps you mitigate the risk from intruders and malware by:

  • Replacing your static privileged passwords with complex, frequently changed, unique passwords to reduce the threat of one compromised password exposing numerous systems to attack.
  • Enforcing policies that prevent reuse of privileged passwords, changing them immediately after each use.
  • Auditing and reporting requests for privileged access.


Protect Your Network after Datacenter Changes

Whenever your organization deploys new hardware or software you could become more vulnerable to a security breach. That’s because new and changed systems and applications introduce common and shared privileged passwords present in:

  • Physical and virtual machines running almost every operating system including Windows, Linux, UNIX, OS/390, AS/400, IOS and others.
  • Out-of-band management devices, hypervisors, middleware, databases and directory services.
  • Line-of-business applications, packaged and custom software, and others.

Adding or changing devices and applications in your datacenter can leave you vulnerable to attacks that exploit shared and common privileged passwords. Should a single privileged account password become known to a network intruder, unauthorized insider, or malicious software program the breach can quickly spread to other machines that share common credentials.

Fortunately RPM helps you safeguard your network by:

  • Continuously strengthening new and existing privileged account passwords.
  •  Auditing and reporting requests for privileged access.

Stay Secure After IT Personnel Turnover

When IT personnel change jobs they take with them password secrets that grant access to sensitive data, permission to execute programs, and the ability to change configuration settings on most hardware or software.

Failure to safeguard privileged access during times of IT staff turnover can result in the loss of sensitive data and failures of business-critical services.

RPM helps you regain control by:

  • Changing these credentials frequently enough to prevent a data breach.
  • Segregating existing privileged passwords to mitigate the threat of one compromised password exposing numerous systems to attack.
  • Creating a process to prevent reuse of privileged passwords, changing them immediately after each use.
  • Auditing and reporting requests for privileged access.


Lower the Cost and Uncertainty of Regulatory Audits

Organizations that face regulatory compliance audits for standards such as PCI DSS, HIPAA, NERC, FISMA and others need to prove that they’ve secured their privileged identities.

RPM lowers the cost and uncertainty of IT audits by:

  • Maintaining minimum complexity and change frequency standards for privileged account passwords.
