New Features: PowerBroker Password Safe 6.4 McAfee ePO Edition

In December 2017, we announced the version 6.4 release of BeyondTrust PowerBroker Password Safe. We are pleased to announce that version 6.4 now features integration with McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator and more. Below is an update for the release.

Discover and Onboard Assets into BeyondInsight / Password Safe Directly from McAfee ePO

McAfee ePO provides synchronization options to identify whether a system is currently under management by Password Safe, and if desired, an unmanaged system may be onboarded directly from the ePO console.

This integration provides seamless, and secure access for connectivity to systems requiring privileged access. In addition, all activity may be centrally monitored, and recorded for audit compliance and accountability.

Add/Remove Managed Accounts from the ePO console

By selecting any PowerBroker Password Safe managed system, new accounts may be brought under management or existing accounts unmanaged directly via contextual actions.

Launch Secure Sessions Through the ePO Console Using Powerbroker Password Safe

PowerBroker Password Safe offers customers the ability to remotely connect to devices and end points without knowledge of the credentials being used. The policies managed through Password Safe also control which users can utilize this functionality, and to what devices they can connect.

From the McAfee ePO console, the user can select a Password Safe managed system, and then select an action to automatically launch an SSH or RDP session to the asset without displaying the credentials.

Release Privileged Credentials Through the ePO Console

With this feature, the user logged into the ePO console can select a system, and then select a managed credential they are authorized to retrieve the password for.

Manage and Rotate Account Passwords on Selected Devices

From within the McAfee ePO console, a user can select one or more systems, and choose to cycle the passwords for all associated managed accounts.

Pass McAfee ePO Tags as Keyword Attributes in PowerBroker Password Safe

Systems in Password Safe may be tagged with specific keywords from ePO Tags. This allows Smart Rules to dynamically group assets for such actions such as quarantine, or role reassignment.
