M-Tech Releases Credential Security Solution

ID-Archive 4.2.5 was released after an extensive beta program, and includes significant security, scalability and usability enhancements.
ebizQ received the following:
A core component of the M-Tech Identity Management Suite, ID-Archive is
security software designed to secure local administrator passwords on
thousands of servers and workstations. It addresses the problem of
static, widely shared administrator credentials, which is especially
risky when IT staff leave an organization.
ID-Archive works by randomizing administrator passwords regularly
(typically every day). Since passwords are unique to each device and
constantly changing, IT staff are forced to sign into ID-Archive to
access current credentials before working on an IT asset. This creates
an opportunity for authentication of the IT worker, authorization of
access to the device in question and audit of all administrative logins.
ID-Archive ships with connectors for over 70 types of directories,
servers and applications. It is also able to manage passwords across
thousands of workstations, even when they have dynamic addresses, local
firewalls and are frequently powered down or disconnected.
ID-Archive is designed for high availability, with built-in support for
data replication across servers situated in different data centers. This
makes it immune to minor outages such as hard disk crashes as well as
major outages such as data center fires and floods.
