ManageEngine Fortifies Password Manager Pro with Identity Federation
SAN FRANCISCO & PLEASANTON, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
the real-time IT management company, today announced that it has added
SAML 2.0 support to Password
Manager Pro, the industry-leading enterprise privileged password
management solution. The move strengthens the user authentication
mechanism in Password Manager Pro, enabling integration with federated
identity management solutions for single sign-on.
ManageEngine (News - Alert) is demonstrating the new Password Manager Pro functionality
via out-of-the-box integration with cloud identity and access management
(IAM) provider Okta
Conference 2014, being held February 24-28, 2014, in San Francisco.
ManageEngine is in booth 2039.
"Password Manager Pro protects passwords of shared accounts and ties
them to individual user accounts for accountability," said Rajesh
Ganesan, director of product management at ManageEngine. "So it's
critical that we integrate with the enterprise's primary identity store.
With SAML support and out-of-the-box Okta integration, Password Manager
Pro now gives enterprises a standards-based, secure and convenient
solution for providing user access and tracking accountability. We will
soon offer integration with other SAML identity providers, too."
Fortifying Password Manager Pro
Enterprises - big and small - are now adopting federated single sign-on
solutions like Okta to offer a seamless authentication experience to
users and to derive the benefits, including automated provisioning and
de-provisioning of accounts and allowing users to have the convenience
of using the same credentials for on-premise and cloud applications. To
achieve this, the latest version of Password Manager Pro (build 7002,
beta) supports integration with SAML, an XML-based open standard data
format for exchanging authentication and authorization data between
parties, in particular, between an identity provider and a service
Technically, Password Manager Pro acts as the SAML service provider, and
it integrates with SAML identity providers. Out-of-the-box integration
is now available with Okta. The integration helps leverage the identity
provider's (Okta) authentication to access Password Manager Pro. Users
who have deployed Okta or any other SAML identity provider can
automatically log in to the Password Manager Pro application from the
respective identity provider's GUI without supplying credentials.
In addition to the support for SAML integration, the latest enhancements
to Password Manager Pro include secure, SSH/Telnet access to remote
devices in data centers through the provision to configure jump servers
and the managed service provider (MSP) edition, an industry-first
solution developed specifcally to address the unique privileged
identity management challenges faced by MSPs.
Password Manager Pro serves as the centralized vault for all enterprise
passwords and helps control access to IT resources based on job roles
and responsibilities. A secure, reliable and extremely strong
authentication mechanism is essential for a product of this kind, which
holds highly sensitive corporate data. Password Manager Pro already
supports a variety of on-premise authentication systems, including the
option to leverage the authentication mechanism of external identity
stores such as Active Directory, LDAP, RADIUS and a good number of
