If you’re looking for an on-premise web-based solution for SMB’s that needs enterprise-level password management without the enterprise price tag, where teams of people can access and share sensitive password resources. Look no further.

 We can help with role-based administration and end-to-end event auditing, provide a secure platform for password storage and collaboration. All within a 256bit AES data encryption, code obfuscation and enterprise scalability makes it the Enterprise Password Manager of choice.

 

Auditing & Compliance Reporting

Over 100 different events within Password Vault are audited, with each of them being reportable by different roles within Password Vault. This level of auditing facilitates compliance to various regulatory acts such as Sox & PCI DDS.

 

Remote Sessions to Hosts

Launch remote sessions without needing to type in login credentials - RDP, SSH, Telnet and VNC session. Flexible credentials management, with all remote sessions being audited.

 

Discover Accounts and Resources

Integrate the Password Vault API into your own applications, eliminating hard-coded passwords. Write your own scripts or code to retrieve, update and add passwords to the system, maintaining standard auditing & real-time notifications throughout the process. API Documentation.

 

Active Directory Integration

Import users & security groups from Windows Active Directory, authenticate and apply permissions using these credentials, and keep account status and security group memberships synchronised.

During a disaster, the last thing you need is to be searching for your passwords to recover systems. Without our High Availability module, you can guarantee you can always access Password Vault when needed.

 

Secure Code & Data

To protect the privacy of sensitive data, all passwords are stored within the database using 256 Bit AES Encryption, and sensitive code is protected by the use of precompiled ASP.NET pages and obfuscated.NET Assemblies.
