Leading IT Managed Services Provider Adds Enterprise Random Password Manager to Cyber Security Product Portfolio

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 8, 2016) - Lieberman Software Corporation today announced its selection by CWPS as the privileged access management platform provider in the company's MSP program. As part of the CWPS cyber security product portfolio, Lieberman Software's Enterprise Random Password Manager™ (ERPM) is now offered as a solution to securely manage access to powerful privileged identities in large enterprise environments.

"We are pleased to welcome CWPS as an Authorized Partner to deliver products and services to both public sector organizations and private sector companies," said Richard A Weeks, Vice President of Channel & Business Development at Lieberman Software. "CWPS has an excellent reputation and is well established and positioned to help us continue expanding into key federal government agencies, which are high value targets of advanced cyber attacks. Together, Lieberman Software and CWPS can provide 'security inside the firewall' when cyber attacks penetrate the network perimeter." 

Securing Privileged Access in Government Organizations
Due to the high volume of sensitive data contained in federal agencies, government enterprises are frequent targets of cyber attack. Criminal hackers and nation-state attackers launch social engineering, spear phishing and similar exploits to defeat conventional perimeter security defenses and penetrate the network. From there they look for privileged credentials, which allow them to move laterally throughout the IT environment and anonymously access valuable data.

ERPM eliminates that lateral motion by time-limiting how long a captured credential can be abused. It automatically discovers privileged accounts throughout the enterprise -- on-premises, in the cloud and in hybrid environments. It brings those accounts under management, and audits access to them. Privileged credentials can be updated as frequently as necessary. So even if an attacker steals a credential, it has a limited lifetime and is not shared among multiple systems. The stolen credential cannot be leveraged to leapfrog between systems.

Following last year's data breach at the US Office of Personnel Management, the White House Chief Information Officer (CIO) launched a "cybersecurity sprint" to protect government systems against evolving threats. The White House Fact Sheet stated that federal agencies must tighten policies and practices for privileged users, which aligns with ERPM's core functionality.

And by providing the accountability of showing who on the IT staff had access to systems with sensitive data, at what time and for what stated purpose, government agencies can better verify their compliance with regulatory mandates such as CAG, FISMA, FIPS and others.

"Privileged credentials are a primary attack surface in many major data breaches," said Jason Waldrop, CEO of CWPS. "These credentials hold the keys to access an organization's most critical enterprise computing and information assets. For that reason we needed to provide an enterprise-level privileged access management solution for both the public sector organizations and the private sector companies in our MSP network. We selected Lieberman Software's Enterprise Random Password Manager for its ability to automatically discover and continuously secure privileged identities at scale, either on-premises or in the cloud."
