Selecting a Password Management Product
As described in this document, a password management system is conceptually simple, but can be difﬁcult
to deploy and to manage.
A careful examination of products and their vendors is essential to achieving:
• Rapid deployment.
• Reliable and scalable operation.
• Good user adoption.
• Long term support.
Without meeting these objectives, a password management system will not achieve reduced cost, improved
user service or enhanced security.
The issues raised here are difﬁcult to validate on paper. Hitachi ID encourages prospective customers to
use the points raised in this document to construct rigorous laboratory testing conditions and to evaluate
prospective products empirically, with vendor assistance.
