Dell One Password Manager automates, controls and secures the entire process of granting administrators the credentials necessary to perform their duties. Dell One Privileged Password Manager is deployed on a secure, hardened appliance.
Password Manager ensures that when administrators require elevated access (typically through shared credentials, such as the Unix root password), that access is granted according to established policy, with appropriate approvals; that all actions are fully audited and tracked; and that the password is changed immediately upon its return. It’s a secure, compliant and efficient solution to the age-old “keys to the kingdom” problem.
One of the most vulnerable – but often overlooked – aspects of IS security is the embedded passwords required for applications to talk to each other or to databases. Privileged Password Manager also replaces hardcoded passwords with programmatic calls that dynamically retrieve the account credential, eliminating this security exposure.
