Hitachi ID Systems Releases Management Suite Version 8.2

May 1, 2013

Groundbreaking release introduces major new features and raises the bar
on scalability and usability

CALGARY, May 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Hitachi ID Systems announced the general availability of the Hitachi ID Management Suite, Version 8.2.  The new version updates the Privileged Access Manager (HiPAM), Identity Manager HiIM and Password Manager (HiPM) products with major improvements to scalability, high
availability, usability and many other important new features. New
capabilities include graphical dashboards, a new mechanism for
temporary assignment of membership in privileged security groups,
integrated privileged access policy assignment for both fixed assets
such as servers and mobile assets such as laptops, integration with
social platforms such as Facebook or Google and CAPTCHA support in the
login process. “We have been working on 8.2 for some time and it
reflects extensive customer feedback,” said Idan Shoham, Hitachi ID’s
CTO.  “Our main focus in this release was on supporting large scale
HiPAM deployments. Our customers need to be able to add new servers
quickly, for example after disasters such as Hurricane Sandy.  They
also want to support temporary privilege escalation as an alternative
to password display or password injection.” “We have also expanded
support for business-to-consumer (B2C) deployments in this release,
hence the social platform integrations and performance improvements. 
The 8.2 release can sustain onboarding two users per second in
multi-million-user installations,” added Mr. Shoham.
