Many organizations manage user passwords but now struggle to control and
manage administrator access to privileged passwords and to eliminate passwords
hard-coded into applications. Privileged and hard-coded passwords are commonly
known as "shared" or "service account" passwords. If left unmanaged, they pose
a significant security and compliance risk. By partnering with Cloakware to
offer customers CSPM, STI solves the shared account password management (SAPM)
problem with an enterprise-class solution.
"Our customers count on us to identify emerging security threats,
research the best technologies for addressing critical issues and deliver
solutions in a manner that fits within their business model," said Joe Oster,
president of STI. "Cloakware and its CSPM product support STI in further

CSPM is the first commercial off-the-shelf product to allow IT managers
to centrally and securely change all types of shared account passwords. All
passwords are changed from one interface automatically, eliminating the risk
of distributing passwords and maintaining scripts manually. CSPM helps
organizations meet the most demanding regulatory compliance requirements of
Sarbanes-Oxley, Gramm-Leach-Bliley, Payment Card Industry, Federal Information
Security Management Act, and other legislation.
"Part of what makes STI so successful is its ability to maintain a
laser-like focus on customer needs," said David Canellos, Cloakware executive
vice president, worldwide sales. "Because of this, STI is recognized as an
award-winning, industry leader in finding targeted solutions to meet emerging
security demands from municipalities, financial institutions and corporations.
By adding CSPM to its portfolio, as well as investing in the training to offer
accompanying support services, STI continues to prove its true commitment to
providing customers with the full benefits of inherent software security and
automated password management."
