Keep an eye on privileged users' activities

An update to ManageEngine's Password Manager Pro delivers session recording facilities to track the use of critical systems.

Password Manager Pro allows users of any HTML5-compatible browser to launch emulated Windows RDP, SSH and Telnet sessions, without requiring additional plug-ins or agent software.

It also provides secure storage for passwords and other sensitive information.

Password Manager Pro 6.7 adds the ability to record, archive and play back the actions taken by privileged users during privileged sessions.

The problem, according to Rajesh Ganesan, director of product management at ManageEngine, is that certain users need very broad access to critical resources to do their jobs.

The unspoken concern is that some of these users may be expert enough to cover their tracks after performing unauthorised operations.

So Password Manager Pro 6.7 stores a visual record of those activities in what the company claims is a "tamper-proof archive" which can then be used for forensic audits.

Prices start at $US495 for two administrators, but the premium edition (from $US1195) is needed if the session recording feature is required. A 30 day trial version is available.
