Scorpion Software presents the only password management tools that are fully integrated with Kaseya®. Through a single pane of glass within the Kaseya Management Console, Scorpion Software enables fully integrated password management, two-factor authentication, and single sign-on capabilities.
“Kaseya is designed with security in mind, but every system is only as strong as its password management,” says Scorpion Software CEO Dana Epp. “Our partnership with Kaseya allows users to strengthen their security by keeping a close eye on employees and consultants that know critical passwords, and what they’re doing with them.”
All it would take is one tech with bad habits to give up a password, and suddenly an adversary could have access to all the customer systems being managed via Kaseya that a company may be responsible for. Data, records, credit card information, and more could be exposed, costing money, trust, and time to fix it – perhaps even a court case.
“IT professionals are responsible for their clients’ system security,” said Jeff Keyes, senior product marketing manager, Kaseya. “They owe it to themselves and their customers to use the strongest possible security on their management system. Using two-factor authentication and enforcing password management are the best ways to truly give customers peace of mind about security.”
AuthAnvil Password Solutions acts as a gatekeeper, ensuring that only the right people can access company information both on premise and in the cloud. Access points are barred from villains in three ways.
Firstly, with AuthAnvil Two-Factor Auth, users logon to Kaseya in a new way that goes beyond username and password. A third field, called a passcode, traces who they really are with a code nearly impossible to duplicate or forge. Users enter their own four-digit PIN, plus a one time, dynamically-generated password from an AuthAnvil token. It’s like having a bank card – there’s something users own (a SoftToken or HardToken) and something they know (their PIN). It’s a one-two punch that ensures the right person is accessing information.
Secondly, AuthAnvil Password Server provides security as a comprehensive password management system. Staff can generate extremely complex passwords that are nearly impossible to guess, securely store passwords so they don’t have to remember them, automate synchronization and password updates, and choose who has access to which passwords.
Best of all, it’s easy to create audit reports in the password server – authorized users can report on who has access to which passwords, and when they were accessed. To revoke access, it’s as simple as a click of a button. This capability is crucial when a staff member leaves, or when a breach of security is suspected. Basically, it allows companies to discover culprits quickly and irrefutably, and prevent problems from happening in the first place.
“One of the key benefits of integrated password management and access control,” says Epp, “is identity assurance. Now every Kaseya user is traceable and authenticated; you have confidence that they are who they say they are, and they can only access what you let them see.”
Thirdly, AuthAnvil Single Sign On is now transparently integrated into Kaseya. When users logon to Kaseya with their passcode, there’s no need to logon to the AuthAnvil Password Server separately. It now appears as an integrated tab in the Kaseya Management Console.
This is the only software of its kind that fully integrates directly into the Kaseya Management Console. With AuthAnvil Password Solutions, Kaseya users can get the highest possible security features, preventing outsiders and even insiders from wreaking havoc with sensitive company information.
