Privileged accounts exist in virtually all applications, databases, and computer and network appliance operating systems in the enterprise. Due to their elevated permissions to access data, run programs and change configuration settings, misuse of privileged identities is a serious threat to security. Regulatory mandates — such as Sarbanes-Oxley, PCI DSS, and HIPAA — require management oversight of privileged accounts and frequent changes to account credentials to prevent unauthorized personnel from accessing sensitive data.
According to research conducted by Forrester, "The exposure to risk from data breaches is growing with evolving external attacks, a rise in concern over insider threats, and greater data mobility. At the same time, organizations are operating under more stringent mandates to protect this data. Compliance requirements — regulatory, contractual, and market-driven — are fueling greater scrutiny over organizations' safeguards and a call for stronger data security measures."1
ERPM provides these internal safeguards by automatically discovering, strengthening, and granting secure access to all privileged account passwords in the Oracle ecosystem. It provides the option to use Oracle Database 11g Release 2 as the ERPM database and manages all of the privileged accounts within Oracle databases. ERPM also controls and secures the privileged credentials present in Oracle middleware and applications that use services and agents with embedded passwords. Without ERPM, these accounts may remain in an unmanaged state, potentially allowing security breaches and violations of regulatory requirements.
Comprehensive integration between Lieberman Software ERPM and Oracle includes:
"Security-conscious enterprises realize the importance of enacting strict access control measures to protect their sensitive business data," said Philip Lieberman, president of Lieberman Software. "Our corporate and government customers know this and are now securing privileged identities on hundreds of thousands of systems in their networks. With Enterprise Random Password Manager we can help bring these customers into compliance and secure their back-office infrastructures in just a few hours, while using Oracle' Database 11g Release 2 as an account store to deliver classic Oracle speed, scalability, and reliability."
In addition to its Oracle support, ERPM manages all major directories and platforms. It is the only privileged identity management solution that can automatically discover all privileged accounts in the enterprise and propagate password changes everywhere these accounts are used, including services, tasks, and applications.
