Amid the fair that is Oracle’s (News - Alert) OpenWorld 2012, enterprise IT management solutions provider ManageEngine has debuted an updated version of its Password Manager Pro to include video recording.
Password Manager Pro stores and manages shared sensitive enterprise information such as passwords, documents and digital identities. It eliminates password fatigue and security lapses by deploying a secure, centralized vault for password storage and access, improves IT productivity by automating frequent password changes required in critical systems, meets security audits and regulatory compliance such as SOX, HIPAA and PCI (News - Alert), and provides preventive and detective security controls through approval workflows and real-time alerts on password access, according to the company.
An upgrade to the preventative and detective security controls functionality is what ManageEngine (News - Alert) is showing at OpenWorld. Privileged sessions launched from the software can now be video recorded and archived, a boon for forensic audits.
“By monitoring all actions performed by privileged accounts during privileged sessions, enterprises can counter threats to information security that arise from outside as well as inside the corporate firewall,” according to the company.
The new recording feature reinforces the software’s existing internal controls and its ability to secure, manage and monitor all actions tied to the lifecycle of privileged passwords, Oracle DB servers included, the company noted. ManageEngine’s Password Manager Pro fully automates these controls.
With increased computing and storage power making recordings a viable option for a range of situations, enterprises are increasingly relying upon call and video recording.
Forensic audits are one reason why call recording is becoming a critical element in the enterprise. Being able to monitor and demonstrate regulatory compliance with call recordings helps with liability claims and audits, easily and quickly moving from speculation to the facts.
Call recording is a valuable tool for corporate training if used properly, too, in that employees and management can review real-world customer and internal behavior against goals. This can help employees unambiguously see where improvements are needed. Examples can also be used as a general training tool for other employees.
Privileged session recording is available immediately in the beta release of Password Manager Pro 6.7, according to the company. There are both free and paid editions, with prices starting at $495 per year.
