Cloakware Announces Availability of Cloakware Server Password Manager 2.0

Enhanced Server Password Automation and Control Strengthens Corporate Security and Compliance

VIENNA, Va., Nov. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Cloakware Inc., the world's leading provider of products and services that protect digital assets such as software, media, passwords and data from piracy and unauthorized access and use, today announced the general availability of Cloakware Server Password Manager (CSPM) Release 2.0. CSPM now offers enterprises the ability to increase the security of their infrastructure and applications with automated password synchronization and retrieval, as well as enhanced administrator control. CSPM Release 2.0 builds on the foundation of the first solution to provide automated process password updates and management.

"Current regulations mandate that companies control access to all of their customer and financial information, but they often overlook server passwords as one of today's leading vulnerabilities," said Sally Hudson, Research Manager, Security Services and Identity and Access Management at IDC. "By making it easier for users to update all of the passwords that reside on a server -- including hard-coded and distributed, 'high-impact' passwords -- Cloakware is closing a gap in its customers' compliance policies."

CSPM enables companies to increase the security of their data center operations and improve the efficiency of managing their servers, while helping to meet the latest regulatory requirements and reducing costs. CSPM Release 2.0 adds features to the core offering to deliver tighter integration with corporate environments, and support strict security practices and controls. These features include:

* Password Synchronization, which automates the process for regularly changing the passwords used within applications and reduces the risk of server outages and the human effort involved with manual password changes. * Administrative Roles, which enable granular control over the permissions granted to system administrators. This allows access to be determined by specific duties or job functions and can protect the system from a malicious administrator or insider threat. * Client and Server Key Management, which automates the process for regularly changing the encryption/decryption keys used to protect the server credentials stored within the system. This dynamic process adds significantly to the security of the environment.

"We have been amazed by the response to our CSPM solution both by prospects and the industry, and we are releasing today's enhancements to address the needs of our growing customer base," said Jeff Waxman, President and CEO of Cloakware. "While the hard-coding of passwords is a simple problem to comprehend, until now it has remained a very difficult problem to solve. Cloakware is currently the only solution provider to deliver to customers an automated means for updating and managing server passwords."

About Cloakware Server Password Manager (CSPM)

With CSPM, companies no longer need to distribute server IDs and passwords to the developers that write the scripts and applications. Rather, developers embed a Cloakware supplied routine, available for Perl, Java, C, C++ and more, into the scripts and applications to securely acquire the required credentials at runtime from a secure and centrally managed credential release server. Server passwords are then able to change as often as required without having to redistribute the passwords or maintain the scripts that use them. By protecting server IDs and passwords from both external and internal threats, the Cloakware Server Password Manager goes far beyond any other solution available today.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
