Lieberman Software Provides Privileged Identity Management Solution For Microsoft Office SharePoint Server

Enterprise Random Password Manager integrates with all current and recent versions of SharePoint Server

(LOS ANGELES, CA " December 14, 2009) Lieberman Software today announced integration of its flagship privileged identity management solution, Enterprise Random Password Manager (ERPM), with Microsoft Office SharePoint Server to give enterprises the ability to automatically discover and secure all privileged identities present on SharePoint Server sites.

Privileged identities are accounts that hold elevated permission to access files, install and run programs, and change configuration settings. They exist on most server and desktop operating systems, business applications, databases, Web services and network appliances in an organization. Enterprises that do not maintain frequently-changed, unique passwords for each privileged account face a threat of unauthorized users and malicious programs gaining unrestricted access to resources throughout the network should a single identity be compromised.

SharePoint Server makes extensive use of privileged accounts for its processes, and is an example of an enterprise service that could benefit from Lieberman Software's Enterprise Random Password Manager. The most common management solution for privileged accounts is for IT staff to develop, test, deploy and maintain ad-hoc scripts. While suitable for smaller, more static, IT environments, scripts are not a comprehensive solution in an enterprise. Large, dynamic networks require continuous identification and management of all the privileged identities present in SharePoint Server sites.

"Each SharePoint Server site could have its own set of privileged accounts, and finding and managing these accounts can be difficult," said Chris Stoneff, product manager at Lieberman Software. "Consequently, most organizations' privileged account passwords for enterprise applications and services, such as SharePoint Server, are rarely changed. This can result in failed security audits and potentially costly data breaches. Fortunately, Enterprise Random Password Manager now provides complete management for all SharePoint Server privileged accounts."

SharePoint Integration Comprehensive integration between Lieberman Software ERPM and Microsoft SharePoint Server includes:

Automatic Discovery " ERPM automatically discovers all privileged accounts in SharePoint Server sites. This capability is ideal for large SharePoint Server farms because it allows IT administrators to regularly change these passwords locally in Active Directory and propagate the new password to all SharePoint components with a single mouse click.

Controlled Access " ERPM now has the ability to grant controlled access to SharePoint Server privileged accounts using a web-based firecall system. This provides time-limited access to these accounts, restricted only to authorized staff who document the purpose for each access. It also removes the security threat posed by individuals who hold high-powered credentials indefinitely, without documented need for each access.

Enterprise Random Password Manager integrates with all current and recent versions of SharePoint Server - including SharePoint Server 2007, SharePoint Server 2003, and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server - and is available now.
