Lieberman Software's Enterprise Random Password Manager (ERPM) Named a Finalist in 2011 Government Security News Homeland Security Awards
ERPM Secures Privileged Access to Government and Enterprise Organizations' Most Sensitive Data
(LOS ANGELES, CA – October 10, 2011) Lieberman Software Corporation today announced that its flagship privileged identity management solution, Enterprise Random Password Manager™, has been named a finalist for Best Privileged Access Management Solution in the 2011 GSN Homeland Security Awards.
"Privileged identities impact the security of highly sensitive military and federal government data through their control of access to systems and applications," explained Philip Lieberman, president of Lieberman Software. "As situations like the WikiLeaks fiasco showed, a malicious insider is sometimes impossible to identify until it's too late. An organization has to protect itself by ensuring that no one has access to data they don’t need. Federal government agencies in particular need to be aware that former employees familiar with their previous agency’s privileged passwords, as well as current employees and contractors with similar access, can pose a serious risk."
ERPM helps control access to an organization’s most crucial proprietary data by fully auditing administrative access to systems and applications in the IT infrastructure. ERPM provides the accountability of showing precisely who on the IT staff had access to sensitive data, at what time and for what stated purpose. This information can be provided to security auditors to verify compliance with major regulatory mandates such as CAG-8, FISMA, FIPS and others.
National Cybersecurity Awareness
This October is also the eighth annual National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, a campaign sponsored by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and endorsed by Lieberman Software.
"We must be proactive in our shared responsibility to protect the nation's cyber networks and information infrastructure from foreign and even internal criminal attacks that are increasingly capable of disrupting the IT infrastructure that sustains a large segment of our economy. The threat extends beyond individual networked systems, to entire data centers that run critical back-end operations at every major corporation," said Lieberman.
Lieberman Software provides the industry’s most comprehensive line of privileged identity management products and has long helped secure some of the nation’s largest government and military organizations, including the U.S. Army and other branches of the U.S. Department of Defense. The company also holds a U.S. Army Certificate of Networthiness (CoN), a requirement for enterprise software products that operate in the Army Enterprise Infrastructure network.
