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.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
Every organization is facing their own Digital Transformation as they attempt to stay ahead of the competition, or worse, just keep up. Each new opportunity, whether embracing machine learning, IoT, or a cloud migration, seems to bring new development, deployment, and management models. The results are more diverse and federated computing models than any time in our history.
At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throug...
Over the course of two days, in addition to insightful conversations and presentations delving into the industry's current pressing challenges, there was considerable buzz about digital transformation and how it is enabling global enterprises to accelerate business growth. Blockchain has been a term that people hear but don't quite understand. The most common myths about blockchain include the assumption that it is private, or that there is only one blockchain, and the idea that blockchain is...
Where many organizations get into trouble, however, is that they try to have a broad and deep knowledge in each of these areas. This is a huge blow to an organization's productivity. By automating or outsourcing some of these pieces, such as databases, infrastructure, and networks, your team can instead focus on development, testing, and deployment. Further, organizations that focus their attention on these areas can eventually move to a test-driven development structure that condenses several l...
The term "digital transformation" (DX) is being used by everyone for just about any company initiative that involves technology, the web, ecommerce, software, or even customer experience. While the term has certainly turned into a buzzword with a lot of hype, the transition to a more connected, digital world is real and comes with real challenges. In his opening keynote, Four Essentials To Become DX Hero Status Now, Jonathan Hoppe, Co-Founder and CTO of Total Uptime Technologies, shared that ...

Never mind that we might not know what the future holds for cryptocurrencies and how much values will fluctuate or even how the process of mining a coin could cost as much as the value of the coin itself - cryptocurrency mining is a hot industry and shows no signs of slowing down. However, energy consumption to mine cryptocurrency is one of the biggest issues facing this industry. Burning huge amounts of electricity isn't incidental to cryptocurrency, it's basically embedded in the core of "mini...

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
