May 1, 2013 - Calgary, Alberta, Canada - Hitachi ID Systems announced the general availability of the Hitachi ID Identity and Access 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.
