WASHINGTON, April 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Thycotic, a provider of privileged account management (PAM) solutions for more than 3,500 organizations worldwide, today unveiled Secret Server 9.0, the latest version of the company's flagship solution which enables businesses of all sizes to store, distribute, change and audit passwords in a secure environment. Secret Server 9.0 provides organizations with a fundamental security layer to protect against cyber-attacks that target privileged accounts to get at critical information assets within an organization.
Thycotic's strengthened solution continues to provide protection of privileged accounts while being the fastest to deploy, easiest to use, scalable enterprise-class solution offered at a competitive price. With it, Secret Server 9.0 brings three additional, major features to its customer base.
"Whether an IT manager needs to have multiple sites, meet uptime SLAs, a global IT team that needs guaranteed access, a limit on what vendors can do on UNIX systems, or need to manage sessions for IT admins using Macs, Secret Server 9.0 now provides the capabilities to do all of the above and more," said Ben Yoder, Product Manager at Thycotic.
Major enhancements of Secret Server 9.0 include:
Geo Replicated Databases
Geo Replication leverages Microsoft's SQL Server Replication to let each site have its own database, so even if the primary site goes down or the remote sites don't have external internet access they can still use Secret Server.
UNIX Command Whitelisting - SUPM
With its UNIX Privilege Management product module, Secret Server administrators build a UNIX command whitelist. When a user runs an SSH launcher, they are limited to a subset of commands while operating as root. This works on any device that uses SSH, such as network equipment, UNIX, and Macs.
Mac Session Launcher
With its Mac Session launcher, Secret Server 9.0 Provides a Mac Launcher with the same feature set as Windows Session Launcher, including session recording, proxying, and launching of custom Mac applications.
"These new enhancements allow users to grant access and protection even if the network between sites goes down. They also increase and broaden overall security with specific control management and cross platform support," said Jonathan Cogley, Founder and CTO of Thycotic. "Our customers will continue to see the benefits of Secret Server with our latest updates and will now be able to meet industry standard compliance regulations and policies for Unix SUPM."
