PLEASANTON, USA: ManageEngine, the real-time IT management company, announced HTML5-powered, first-in-class remote login mechanisms for Password Manager Pro, its privileged password management solution. Now, end users can launch secure, reliable Windows RDP, SSH and Telnet sessions from their browser windows, with a single click. Password Manager Pro now also integrates with the popular file sync service, Dropbox, for automatically syncing password lists to users’ mobile devices for secure, offline access to passwords.
Organizations are deploying privileged password management solutions to mitigate cyber threats and control access to sensitive IT resources. Access requirements themselves, meanwhile, are changing in response to evolving business demands such as partners and contractors who need to access internal resources. In turn, IT is seeking solutions that are secure, easy to use and let end users launch a remote login session with a single click, regardless of the target system type or authentication method and, at times, without disclosing the passwords.
“Despite a strong business case for secure, direct access to remote resources, current solutions in the market require inconvenient and insecure practices like deploying end-point agents, helper programs at user desktops and browser plug-ins to make remote login work,” says Rajesh Ganesan, director of product management at ManageEngine. “Ease of use and security have always been orthogonal goals, nevertheless a constant search by IT admins in a space like remote access. Password Manager Pro helps them realize their goals while evolving to be the best remote access solution for various types of systems.”
