Atlanta, GA – May 22, 2018 – Bomgar, a leader in secure access solutions, today announced the latest release of Bomgar Privileged Identity. The product features enhanced integrations with Bomgar Privileged Access, as well as improved manageability over SSH keys and Linux systems. Bomgar Privileged Identity is a rebranded and updated version of the award-winning RED Identity Management solution from Lieberman Software, which Bomgar acquired earlier this year.
Today’s advanced cyberattacks can bypass conventional perimeter security and covertly infiltrate IT networks, and often exploit unsecured privileged credentials to move anonymously between systems and extract an organization’s sensitive data.
Bomgar Privileged Identity contains cyberattacks that penetrate the network perimeter by securing the privileged credentials needed to gain access to IT assets. It continuously discovers privileged accounts throughout the cross-platform enterprise and automatically randomizes the credentials for each account at substantial speed and scale. Even if a hacker harvests a credential, the threat is contained because the stolen credential is time-limited and cannot be used to further expand the attack in the environment.
“Remote access is one of the most common pathway used during cyberattacks, and nearly every data breach involves stolen privileged credentials,” said Sam Elliott, Sr. Director of Security Product Management at Bomgar. “Bomgar’s Privileged Access Management solutions defeat those threats by allowing IT and security professionals to control access to critical systems while also managing and securing the privileged credentials for those accounts.”
In addition to helping mitigate the damage caused by cyberattacks, Bomgar Privileged Identity increases the productivity of IT staff. It operates automatically on an ongoing basis to eliminate time-consuming manual IT tasks, such as frequently updating privileged credentials in large enterprise environments. According to Gartner, “Although it is theoretically possible to use manual processes to manage privileged accounts, in practice it is too cumbersome to do so, and virtually impossible to enforce such practices without specialized privileged access management tools.”1
