Security executives can measure, monitor, and communicate their information security controls
ClearPoint Metrics and Hitachi ID Systems have formed a partnership to integrate Hitachi’s ID Password Manager with ClearPoint Metrics’s Security Performance Manager.
ClearPoint said that, with its Security Performance Manager, security executives and their teams can measure, monitor, and communicate their information security controls, enabling them to deliver fact-based evidence supporting their strategic governance, compliance, and risk initiatives.
ClearPoint noted that Hitachi ID Password Manager, a component of the Hitachi ID Management Suite, helps in enterprise password management. It reduces the frequency of help desk calls, improves user productivity, and strengthens authentication security.
Hitachi ID Password Manager accomplishes this with password synchronization and simplified administration of other authentication factors, such as hardware tokens and biometrics. Hitachi ID Password Manager includes connectors to manage passwords on over 70 kinds of systems and applications.
Jim Acquaviva, CEO of ClearPoint Metrics, said: We are very pleased to have Hitachi as a strategic partner. By integrating with Hitachi ID Password Manager, we deliver a comprehensive data security metrics offering around Hitachi’s identity management software, allowing organizations to track adoption, password strength, security incidents, and more. We look forward to working with them on many joint customer implementations.
