The R&D division of a US-based virtualization platform provider, global leader in virtualization and cloud infrastructure solutions serving over 300,000 customers experienced proliferation of complex, hard-to remember administrative passwords. The division's IT environment is vast and includes hundreds of physical devices, virtual machines virtualized applications, and mobility-enabled virtual workloads that traverse the network from one physical server to another. The manual approach to storing, accessing and managing these administrative passwords was cumbersome, time consuming, labor intensive and also highly insecure.
Determined to be proactive in ensuring security at all levels, the organization clearly needed an automated password management solution to consolidate and secure the privileged passwords in a centralized vault and establish access controls.
After researching various tools, they chose ManageEngine Password Manager Pro. Today, apart from proving highly effective in securing the in-house privileged identities in day-to-day operations, Password Manager Pro has been playing a significant access control role at the broadly attended and highly visible global conference organized by the virtualization platform provider.
