SolarWinds announced that it has launched SolarWinds Passportal suite—a unified set of password management and privileged client knowledge management tools, adding to its IT security product portfolio. This represents another advance in SolarWinds’ mission to provide products that are purposefully designed to make the jobs of technology professionals easier, and in filling a gap in the market not met by enterprise-level security vendors.

The new SolarWinds Passportal product suite will arm IT service providers with the ability to more effectively manage and secure the broad range of IT ecosystems under their purview. While many security vendors take a complex approach to solving IT security management challenges, their focus has always been to make IT—including security—look easy, despite the complexities in the background. This launch will fully supports that mission, and is another step in helping the customers to stay focused on IT management vs. IT problem-solving.

The new suite joins the family through the acquisition of Passportal, a company that delivers MSP-focused password management and privileged client knowledge management tools that integrate easily with a wide range of IT software products.

With a purpose-built open framework, this newest MSP security product easily integrates with the tools the customers that are already using to help them run their environments in the ways they want and need. The ability to quickly add on specialized tools like password management and privileged information management is especially critical for the MSP whose customer, the SMB, has become the new cybercrime target du jour.”

SolarWinds Passportal suite of products provides MSPs with easy-to-use password management and privileged client knowledge management tools in a singular console. Products are delivered both self-serve and via a Password Management as a Service (PMaaS) model, that allows an IT service provider to deliver a rebranded service offering to alleviate the password pains and struggles their clients endure.  Specific capabilities include secure password and documentation management for rapid access to the privileged information needed for effective support, and self-service password reset to deliver a more secure and automated experience. The GDPR-compliant, SOC 2 Type 1 certified products are designed to easily integrate with third-party solutions that MSPs already use.
