Irdeto's Cloakware Password Authority Sets Decisive Security Industry Standards

Top global brands choose Irdeto's CPA to safeguard their business against insider attacks

VIENNA, Va., March 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Irdeto, the leading expert in content and business model protection solutions and services, today announced enhancements to its Cloakware Password Authority (CPA) offering. The privileged password management solution now provides customers with improved usability, greater job scheduling flexibility, easier tracking of password access and change activity, "click to connect" to target systems, and expanded application client coverage.

Increases in existing capacity utilization continue to fuel industry trends toward virtualization of the datacenter and use of cloud based computing platforms. These changes pose new challenges for CISOs who must ensure regulatory compliance and protection of critical digital assets. To meet these new challenges and maintain effective and efficient privileged password management for both human and programmatic access to critical data and systems, Irdeto continues to enhance its Cloakware Password Authority offering to satisfy the requirements of its leading customers such as Research in Motion (RIM), Scotiabank and State Street Bank.

"Privileged access management represents one of the most pressing challenges facing companies today," noted Said Rahmani Khezri, senior vice president of the Cloakware product group at Irdeto. "Some of the most recognized brands in the world have taken the appropriate measures necessary to secure their data to avoid small mistakes that can result in big losses. These companies have chosen Irdeto's highest-level security solution - Cloakware Password Authority - to protect their privileged information and most critical data."

As internal data breaches and worker dissatisfaction continue to make front-page headlines, privileged access management is becoming a higher priority for enterprises and small- to medium-sized businesses alike. Companies have now seen firsthand the significant consequences that may result from not implementing these types of solutions. On January 8, 2010, Heartland Payment Systems agreed to a settlement of $60 million payable to Visa for credit and debit cardholder losses resulting from a data breach in 2008. Additionally, the Ponemon Institute's annual study reported that the average total cost of a data breach topped $200 per customer record in 2009 and overall organization cost per incident climbed to $6.75 million.
