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.
