Securing intellectual property and keeping plans confidential is crucial to success in the semiconductor industry. Chip design and fabrication companies must protect their own data, adhere to contractual obligations to protect customer and partner data and must comply with legislative requirements regarding corporate governance and privacy protection.

Hitachi ID's customer, a global semiconductor company, needed a more effective way to secure and manage data distributed over thousands of servers.

The customer knew that effective management of local administrator passwords is critical to securing data. This required that local administrator passwords be changed regularly, and that passwords were immediately changed whenever an IT worker with elevated privileges left the company. The existing, manual process to change administrator passwords posed both productivity and risk problems, taking up to three days to respond to staff terminations.

To address these challenges, the company required a reliable, secure, scalable and efficient solution that could:

  • Randomize passwords across thousands of servers on a regular basis.
  • Streamline the process for responding to IT worker departure.
  • Authenticate, authorize and audit access to sensitive passwords.
  • Operate across firewalls, to manage isolated servers.
