No one is safe out on the virtual streets of cyber world, and security breaches surface quite frequently to remind us of the same. Lately, the U.S. federal agencies are the favorite hot spots for hackers. Two weeks ago, the high-tech system of Internal Revenue Service (IRS) was hacked and the personal data of over 100,000 U.S. taxpayers was stolen while the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) suffered what appears to be one of the largest U.S. Government data theft. Cyber criminals broke into the OPM database and accessed the identity information of at least 4 million federal workers. Such attacks expose the sophisticated methods that cyber criminals use and the vulnerability of even the largest of enterprises.
Often, identity thefts are at the root of modern cyber crimes. Hackers are increasingly targeting login credentials of employees and privileged accounts. These are indeed the ‘Keys to the Kingdom’ with unlimited access to IT assets and the need to secure them is becoming crucial with each data breach. Moreover, the number and mix of privileged accounts in enterprises are growing constantly. So, IT teams are also faced with the challenge of incorporating a reliable and a scalable solution that can automate the entire life cycle of privileged access management with a policy-driven approach. Throw in the need to monitor traffic and comply with several federal IT regulations, today’s enterprises are in a complicated security fix.
Moreover, growth and diversification make it necessary for enterprises to acquire a full-featured solution that integrates seamlessly with their IT infrastructure. The Enterprise Edition of ManageEngine’s Password Manager Pro with its improved accuracy and efficiency of privileged access management, will meet all enterprise requirements to the tee.
