Manual Password Management Processes like maintaining privileged passwords on paper in a safe proved highly inefficient and drove users to create individual password management solutions at Wageningen UR.
While ensuring uninterrupted access to courses, systems and research database across the globe for researchers, Wageningen UR’s IT department had to keep in mind the potential security threats to intellectual property and other sensitive data. With security incidents looming large, effectively tracking and controlling privileged access to the IT assets became imperative.
Sensing the potential security threats associated with the practice of individual users creating their own means of storing passwords due to restricted accessibility of paper-based store in the vault, Wagenigen UR’s IT team decided to replace the traditional, hardcopy password management practices using ManageEngine Password Manager Pro.
profiled by Password Manager Pro, Remon Klein Tank, Security Architect – IT infrastructure at Wageningen UR tells how Password Manager Pro has helped them in achieving their IT security objectives.
“Password Manager Pro automatically randomizes and synchronizes passwords of remote IT resources at periodic intervals. We now have a perfectly policy-driven password management approach in place. We are very pleased to have Password Manager Pro. Our interactions with the technical support have been very effective. Password Manager Pro not only satisfies all our requirements, but has also resulted in improved operational efficiency and internal controls. Password Manager Pro has turned out to be the winning choice for us and we would recommend it to any IT department,” declares Remon.
