PLEASANTON, Calif. - November 30, 2017 - ManageEngine, the real-time IT management company, today announced the launch of a comprehensive privileged identity management (PIM) suite to help enterprises reinforce their security defenses against the fast-growing threat of identity theft. By tightly integrating its SSH key and SSL certificate management software, Key Manager Plus, with its privileged account management software, Password Manager Pro, ManageEngine has created a PIM suite that empowers IT admins to centrally manage privileged passwords, SSH keys and SSL certificates from a single user interface.

IT teams commonly deploy both password-based and key-based authentication methods to validate privileged actions such as remote administrative access and sensitive data transfer. As a result, most IT environments are brimming with innumerable privileged accounts, digital keys, and certificates. These privileged identities form a security perimeter around mission-critical data servers and other IT assets. With the threat of identity theft looming large, safeguarding privileged identities, as well as controlling and auditing their usage, has gained paramount importance. Organizations are usually forced to employ multiple tools to manage different types of identities, but a comprehensive approach to privileged identity management could make this task less daunting.

"Leaving the door open for attackers is what enterprises are doing when they fail to enforce a strict process for using shared privileged accounts that rely on both password and key-based authentication," said Rajesh Ganesan, director of product management at ManageEngine. "Our ManageEngine integrated suite speeds the timely deployment of a privileged access management solution to protect sensitive, privileged information."

A Unified PIM to Close Critical Blind Spots in Privileged Access

With Password Manager Pro, ManageEngine has focused, until now, on providing enterprises with an in-depth solution to control, manage, monitor and audit the entire life cycle of privileged accounts and their access. By integrating with Key Manager Plus, Password Manager Pro now stands equipped to allow IT teams to tighten their control over the usage and management of digital keys and certificates. This helps enterprises to easily employ security best practices for all privileged identities from just one user interface. Additionally, the suite provides a consolidated audit trail that - when integrated into SIEM and threat analysis frameworks - can close critical blind spots related to privileged access in an enterprise.

The integration delivers dedicated provisions within Password Manager Pro's user interface for SSH key and SSL certificate management, including:

  • Automatic SSH and SSL discovery: Discover SSH keys and SSL certificates deployed in the network. Consolidate all discovered entities and store them in Password Manager Pro's secure repository.
  • Keys dashboard: Utilize a new dashboard that displays reports and graphs to provide a holistic view of SSH keys and SSL certificate usage, upcoming certificate expiration and more.
  • Centralized key creation: Create new public and private key pairs and associate private keys with their users. Rotate key pairs regularly. Get a holistic view of key-to-user relationships across the organization.
  • Certificate signing request (CSR) creation: Centrally control CSR processes. Get ready-to-use CSR data files to be sent to the certificate authority for getting new certificates. Receive alerts when certificates are about to expire.
  • Let's Encrypt integration: Enable end users to acquire, deploy, renew and revoke SSL certificates for public domains through an integration with Let's Encrypt, the renowned open certificate authority.
  • SSL vulnerability scanning: Scan all SSL certificates in the repository as well as endpoint servers to identify OCSP revoked certificates and SSL configurations prone to vulnerabilities.
  • Flag SHA-1 certificates: Flag certificates that use the insecure SHA-1 hashing function, and prompt administrators to revoke those certificates and create new ones.
