AUSTIN, TX, November 25, 2008

ManageEngine, makers of a globally renowned suite of cost effective network, systems and security management software solutions, today announced that ManageEngine Password Manager Pro, the company's Privileged Password Management solution, received a perfect 5 Stars and won the "Recommended" rating following extensive testing by SC Magazine -- the world's longest running monthly publication focusing on information security. The review appears in the magazine’s November, 2008 issue.

In its group test, a competitive, hands-on review of nine competing Password Management solutions, SC Magazine editors awarded top honors to Password Manager Pro. With the coveted "SC Magazine Recommended" rating, Password Manager Pro earned 5 out 5 stars in all test categories — features, performance, ease-of-use, documentation, support and value for the money.

"Ease of deployment, small software footprint and superior pricing make ManageEngine Password Manager Pro our Recommended product," states the review. The Magazine found Password Manager Pro provides excellent value for the money. "ManageEngine Password Manager Pro provides a simple and effective way of managing passwords across the enterprise at a fair cost," adds the review.

Peter Stephenson, Technology Editor, SC Magazine, made particular reference to the software's ease-of-use; ability to remotely change passwords on critical systems on a regular basis; and the intuitiveness of the web-interface all the way from logging onto the system through managing resources.

"This recognition from SC Magazine validates the exceptional value of our password management solution,” said Rajesh Ganesan, Director of Product Management at ManageEngine. “It has put Password Manager Pro among the leaders in the market and has clearly established it as the best choice for companies looking for value for the money, while not compromising on data security and industry standard practices. It is evident from the review that Password Manager Pro offers all enterprise-class password management features truly at a fraction of cost of other solutions in the market.  This review supports our commitment to continually providing value to our customers and we are thrilled to receive a perfect score," he added.
