Los Gatos, CA (PRWEB) July 8, 2010
SplashData, Inc. today announces a completely new version of SplashID Enterprise, offering IT managers powerful controls for the centralized administration of password and security policies on all Windows and Mac desktop computers across multiple departments and employee groups.
SplashID Enterprise is designed to quickly and effectively address the most immediate password management concerns of IT, enabling an organization to use stronger password management practices without compromising security or increasing costs. SplashID safely and securely stores all kinds of personal identification information, including usernames, passwords, credit card numbers, calling card numbers, bank account data, PINs, medical insurance information, and more.
The major features of SplashID Enterprise include:
- Cross-platform Windows and Mac end-user support
- Support of MySQL server on Windows, Mac, or Linux
- Centralized secure database of usernames, passwords, documents, and other records
- Administrative control panel for IT with user management
- Customizable group-level and user-level permissions
- Customizable deployment architecture
- Multi-layer database security
A major and costly threat to passwords stored on company databases is lack of policy compliance by employees. The frustration and inconvenience of remembering multiple passwords can lead employees to compromise prudent standards. SplashID Enterprise was designed to make managing and accessing passwords easier and more convenient, resulting in a higher level of policy compliance by employees. SplashID will decrease forgotten password requests, ridding IT of unnecessary distractions and allowing focus on projects that create real value.
Another advantage to SplashID Enterprise is lower potential costs of security threats. The costs of data breaches are astronomical, potentially costing millions of dollars per incident. By implementing SplashID, any organization can significantly reduce the risk of information stolen via password exposure, including data loss, legal costs, customer loss, and a significant decrease in employee productivity.
SplashID Enterprise can be considered not just as a password administration tool, but as a solution for secure record management and sharing. SplashID contains forms for storing records for web logins, accounts, codes, contacts, and more. New custom forms can be added, making SplashID's capability for record storage unlimited. Also, employees may choose to store personal records in addition to enterprise records in SplashID, and the records are kept separate on the server.
In many cases in an enterprise organization, certain logins or other records need to be shared company-wide, department-wide, or among only a certain group of employees, and SplashID makes this process easy and secure. This record sharing feature of SplashID Enterprise is customizable by not just the central IT administrator but also by individual groups or departments within the enterprise.
The consumer versions of SplashID also secure information on mobile platforms, including iPhone, iPad, Windows Mobile and Android. The next update of SplashID Enterprise will optionally give employees access to records on their smartphones, enabling them to be more productive out of the office as well.
SplashID has already been implemented by many top government agencies, technology companies, investment banks, research labs, and other organizations needing a comprehensive password security solution. Among its existing corporate users are Lawrence Livermore National Labs, NetBank, Getty Foundation, Texas A&M University, Los Alamos National Labs, U.S. National and District court systems, and John Hopkins University.
SplashID Enterprise is available on a per-seat basis for as low as $12 per license.
