LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 09/16/13 --
Lieberman Software Corporation, a privileged identity management market leader, and Qualys, Inc.
(NASDAQ: QLYS), a pioneer and leading provider of cloud security and compliance solutions, today announced the integration between Enterprise Random Password Manager (ERPM) and the QualysGuard Security and Compliance Suite, providing customers with secure password management for authenticated scanning for IT security and compliance. Lieberman Software will exhibit this functionality at Qualys Security Conference 2013 in Las Vegas this week.
"We're pleased to announce our new partnership with Qualys," said Philip Lieberman, president and CEO for Lieberman Software. "This integration was requested by some of our mutual enterprise customers to help them more efficiently manage expansive IT infrastructures. As large cloud environments and enterprises scale to vast numbers of systems, the need to automate privileged account management is essential to the security of all systems and devices."
More than 6,000 customers use the QualysGuard Cloud Platform and integrated suite of solutions to effectively manage IT security and compliance across their organizations. Authenticated scans require privileged identity information, which can be difficult to manage in a secure way. ERPM, Lieberman Software's flagship privileged identity management product, automatically finds all privileged accounts in the enterprise and continuously tracks, secures and controls access to each account. With the integration of ERPM and QualysGuard, customers can manage privileged credentials in ERPM for authenticated security scans of IT resources, eliminating the need to maintain unsecure duplicate static passwords to initiate QualysGuard scans, and preventing IT administrators from attempting time-intensive manual password management actions.
"Managing passwords across IT environments is a crucial yet challenging and time consuming part of maintaining effective IT security and compliance," said Philippe Courtot, chairman and CEO for Qualys. "We are pleased to offer this integration with Lieberman Software's ERPM so customers can securely manage and protect their passwords as they use QualysGuard to regularly scan for vulnerabilities and meet compliance regulations."
