Password Manager Pro gets SAML 2.0 support
Posted on 24 February 2014.
ManageEngine has added SAML 2.0 support to Password Manager Pro. The move strengthens the user authentication mechanism in Password Manager Pro, enabling integration with federated identity management solutions for single sign-on.

Enterprises ó big and small ó are now adopting federated single sign-on solutions like Okta to offer a seamless authentication experience to users and to derive the benefits, including automated provisioning and de-provisioning of accounts and allowing users to have the convenience of using the same credentials for on-premise and cloud applications. To achieve this, the latest version of Password Manager Pro (build 7002, beta) supports integration with SAML, an XML-based open standard data format for exchanging authentication and authorization data between parties, in particular, between an identity provider and a service provider.

Technically, Password Manager Pro acts as the SAML service provider, and it integrates with SAML identity providers. Out-of-the-box integration is now available with Okta. The integration helps leverage the identity providerís (Okta) authentication to access Password Manager Pro.

Users who have deployed Okta or any other SAML identity provider can automatically log in to the Password Manager Pro application from the respective identity providerís GUI without supplying credentials.

In addition to the support for SAML integration, the latest enhancements to Password Manager Pro include secure, SSH/Telnet access to remote devices in data centers through the provision to configure jump servers and the MSP edition, an industry-first solution developed specifically to address the unique privileged identity management challenges faced by (MSPs).

Password Manager Pro serves as the centralized vault for all enterprise passwords and helps control access to IT resources based on job roles and responsibilities. A secure, reliable and extremely strong authentication mechanism is essential for a product of this kind, which holds highly sensitive corporate data.

Password Manager Pro already supports a variety of on-premise authentication systems, including the option to leverage the authentication mechanism of external identity stores such as Active Directory, LDAP, RADIUS and a good number of second-factor choices.
