Random Password Manager goes Hyper-V

Responding to the growth of virtualization deployments in the
enterprise and the need for applications that support this
environment, Lieberman Software announced that Random Password
Manager is now certified for Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V.
It is the first privileged-password management solution to achieve
this distinction, according to the company.

By supporting Hyper-V, Random Password Manager can automatically
update every local administrator password on virtual Windows
servers in the enterprise. The product’s entire feature
set—including delegated firewall password recovery workflows,
hardware encryption capability, Federal Information Processing
Standard (FIPS) 140-2 certification, and logging of all password
operations—are now fully functional in virtual

According to Gartner research, shared account password
management tools will be used by more than 50 percent of large
enterprises by year end 2010. This estimate, coupled with the
financial benefits of virtualization technology, demonstrates the
market growth potential for solutions that secure privileged
account passwords in the virtual environment.

Server virtualization technology lowers IT costs and improves
the manageability of the network server environment. It combines
the workloads of multiple servers onto one system, significantly
increasing processing power in the network while reducing the
amount of physical servers that must be maintained. Hyper-V is an
appropriate virtualization option for Windows-centric
infrastructures due to its integration with the x64-bit version of
the Windows Server 2008 operating system. Random Password Manager
is the third Lieberman Software application certified for Hyper-V.
These certifications allow the company to offer a full portfolio of
security management solutions for the Windows server virtualization
