Privileged Sessions Can Be Video Recorded, Archived, Played Back for Forensic Audits
PLEASANTON, Calif. - October 11, 2012 - ManageEngine, the real-time IT management company, today announced the immediate availability of session recording capabilities in its privileged password management software, Password Manager Pro. Now, privileged sessions launched from Password Manager Pro can be video recorded, archived and played back to support forensic audits and let enterprises monitor all actions performed by privileged accounts during privileged sessions.
Threats to information security arise from outside as well as inside the corporate firewall, presenting IT administrators with the formidable task of managing an enormous number of accounts and sessions. Session recording capabilities in password management software provide flexibility, visibility and control to administrators by capturing entire privileged sessions of sensitive resources on video. The recordings are then stored in a tamper-proof archive and can be retrieved anytime for forensic audits.
"The business needs of enterprises are in a constant state of flux," said Rajesh Ganesan, director of product management at ManageEngine. "For a variety of reasons, employees, technicians, partners, contractors and other users require secure access to critical IT resources. But privileged accounts offer virtually unlimited access privileges, and with cyber-threats looming large, it is absolutely essential to track what users are doing with their privileged access."
Session recording caters to the audit and compliance requirements of organizations that mandate proactive monitoring of activities. Administrators can readily answer questions regarding the 'who,' 'what' and 'when' of privileged access. In addition, session recording makes Password Manager Pro a complete solution for the entire lifecycle of privileged password management. It helps organizations secure, control, manage, monitor, audit and review privileged access to diverse IT resources, including servers, databases, network devices and applications - all from a single, centralized web interface.
Password Manager Pro employs first-in-class, remote login mechanisms to deliver on both ease of use and security. From any HTML5-compatible browser, users can launch highly secure, reliable and completely emulated Windows RDP, SSH and Telnet sessions with a single click, without the need for additional plug-in or agent software. The new session recording capability is an extension of the robust remote login mechanism in which the remote connections are tunneled through the Password Manager Pro server, requiring no direct connectivity between the user device and remote host.
Password Manager Pro (6.7) is available immediately. In addition to a fully functional, free 30-day evaluation edition, Password Manager Pro is available as a Free Edition, Standard Edition and Premium Edition. Standard Edition prices start at $495 per year for two administrators. Premium Edition prices start at $1,195 per year for five administrators. All editions can be downloaded directly from the ManageEngine website at http://www.manageengine.com/products/passwordmanagerpro/download.html.
