Cyber-Ark Software Password Vault
Cyber-Ark has enhanced its Enterprise Password Vault for securing, sharing and managing admin passwords. Password Vault now provides a mechanism whereby all privileged users' passwords can be securely archived, transferred, shared and managed by authorized users. It creates a centralized credential management infrastructure to secure administrative and service account passwords. The Central Password Manager module lets organizations change passwords automatically on remote machines and store the new passwords in the Vault. The added capability to manage service accounts lets the software remove hard-coded passwords from all scripts and code, encrypt stored passwords and control access to credentials by application or support staff. Starts at $20,000. Cyber-Ark Software, (781) 251-0670.
