Siber Systems, Inc., a company dedicated to providing world-class computing productivity software for enterprises and individuals, today announced it will exhibit its breakthrough password management solution, RoboForm Enterprise, at RSA Conference USA 2009 in San Francisco, April 20-24. RoboForm Enterprise offers a simplified, client-based strategy for Single Sign-On (SSO) that circumvents many of the problems associated with traditional SSO technologies such as challenging implementation regimens and vulnerabilities to attack at a central password database. It can also fill the gaps of existing SSO solutions which are well-known to be expensive, time-consuming, plagued with complexity, and rarely able to deliver on the promise of reducing logins down to one single password.

RoboForm Enterprise is a full-featured password management solution that provides a secure, easy and cost-effective way to manage employees' numerous passwords. It reduces their myriad logins to one master password, making employees more productive while saving time and IT costs. The application securely stores employee usernames and passwords using powerful AES encryption, and offers multiple advantages over SSO solutions including:

  •     Immediate Results--IT staff can have RoboForm Enterprise up and running in minutes due to its fast, easy installation and out-of-the-box functionality. RoboForm Enterprise requires no time-consuming and expensive integration and customization, and no changes to your application infrastructure are required, thus saving significant development costs. Yet IT personnel still have the flexibility to quickly customize and control password settings as needed.
  •     Increased Employee Productivity and Satisfaction--Employees no longer waste time trying to remember multiple passwords or contacting a help desk to reset forgotten passwords. And, unlike traditional SSO, RoboForm Enterprise supports virtually all business applications, including legacy systems. It automatically and securely "remembers" usernames and passwords for automatic logins, thus eliminating the need to change user profiles or applications.
  •     No Single Point of Attack--Traditional SSO solutions require that passwords be stored in a central database, making the entire enterprise vulnerable to a single point of attack. RoboForm Enterprise's flexible, distributed architecture eliminates this risk while also protecting identities, passwords and corporate data using AES with a user-defined master password as the key.
  •     Clear Cost Savings--RoboForm Enterprise provides an immediate return on investment, thanks to pricing that is a fraction of the cost of traditional SSO. Using the software results in fewer help desk calls for password resets, thereby providing instant IT savings as well as more productive employees.

"RoboForm Enterprise has all the benefits of Single Sign-On without all the negatives," said Bill Carey, Siber Systems VP of Marketing. "Unlike SSO solutions, RoboForm Enterprise is an out-of-the-box product that remembers employee passwords and automatically logs them into applications. It's extremely easy to deploy and customize so you can meet your company's strict password policies. Plus, we offer a free, trial version so IT professionals can test it first. We've eliminated all risk."

White Paper Available
Siber Systems is currently offering an informative white paper titled "Enterprise Password Management, A Best Practices Guide for Solving the Fallout of Password Inflation". In addition to describing the problems posed by excessive passwords in the modern organization, the paper gives IT staffs best practice tips on how they can immediately increase password security, improve employee productivity and decrease IT costs.

"Most companies, when enforcing end-user password policies, struggle to achieve the optimal balance between security and ease-of-use," Carey noted. "The reality is that employees simply can't remember multiple, complex passwords, especially if they have to change them every 30, 60 or 90 days. Instead, they resort to unsecure shortcuts like writing down passwords, storing them in unprotected files and so on. This white paper describes appropriate password standards, explores the potential negative consequences of 'password inflation,' contrasts the various methods of dealing with SSO, and describes a better, alternative approach."
