Cloakware launches enterprise-grade password management solution

Cloakware, a provider of software for securing business applications and digital assets, has launched version 4.0 of Cloakware Password Authority, an enterprise-grade solution to automate the lifecycle management of privileged passwords in the datacenter.

By CBR Staff Writer

According to the company, Cloakware Password Authority 4.0 enables business and government IT operations to meet strict governance, risk management and compliance requirements by enforcing policies and regulations on who and what can access sensitive data and IT infrastructure, eliminating the often overlooked risks of unmanaged hard-coded system administrator (Administrator) and application-to-application (A2A) passwords and increasing operational continuity.

The company claims that Password Authority is a password management solution architected from the ground up to meet the demanding requirements of large global IT operations. Providing customers with the choice of operating system platforms, including HP-UX 11, Solaris, Windows and Linux for the management server and a choice of secure repository, including Oracle, DB2, Sybase, Microsoft SQl Server and MySQL, Cloakware offers the flexibility for conforming to the standards already adopted by customers.

Cloakware has said that Password Authority scales to manage millions of A2A and Administrator passwords across multi-site, heterogeneous IT environments. It supports high-availability techniques such as load balancing, clustering, failover/failback, data replication and verification, multi-site deployment, multi-homed access and secure local-caching to ensure that credentials are available when they are needed.

In addition to offering increased scalability and performance for the largest IT operations, Cloakware Password Authority 4.0 enhances usability and workflow with a new browser interface that enables even novice and occasional users to manage passwords efficiently and confidently, said Cloakware.
