We Released a New Version
As many of you probably know, we released
version 4.83.7 of Enterprise/Random
Password Manager (E/RPM) on October 4, 2013. Looking at the
calendar, we are maintaining a cadence of about 6 to 7 months between
This release marks a significant accomplishment by our
development/testing teams and the results are here in its revision
history and new documentation.
If you are on an active maintenance plan you can download and upgrade
to this new version immediately at no additional cost. Most upgrades
can be done in less than an hour and can be done by clients. Contact
for free assistance with the upgrade.
Much of this latest release focuses on addressing feedback we received
on the previous release (4.83.6) that added important new capabilities
to the product. With significant new capabilities we often receive a
great deal of customer feedback about additional, supporting features
that are desired as the new capabilities are put into service. This
latest version addresses a large percentage of those requests.
One of the most gratifying experiences for the development team was to
see the rapid adoption of our new orchestration interfaces via
PowerShell and web services in 4.83.6. We received a lot of feedback
and suggestions on the programmatic interfaces and incorporated these
recommendations into the current release.
I want to sincerely thank all of the customers who provided feedback on
the previous release as well as their patience waiting for their
features and improvements to appear in a public release. We did weekly
beta versions in the run up to the release that helped us iron out some
wrinkles. Thank You!
Next Version Beta Program…
We have already started to work on the next release of E/RPM and this

will also be announcing additional technical integration partners based
on customer demand.
If you would like to participate in our beta program for the next
version of E/RPM and have the time to provide feedback, please send me

To share our passion for security and make it easier for you to get up
to speed (and become officially certified on the E/RPM platform, we
have decided to make instructor
led training classes free for existing clients (subject to change).
We run instructor led hands-on classes every month in Los Angeles, CA
in a fully equipped classroom.
If you are considering our products, and would like to take the class
to get more familiar before your potential purchase, contact your
Lieberman Software sales representative or your integration partner and
they can arrange for a fee waiver.
We just ask that you register and pay for your own T&E (hotel and
transportation not included in this free offer).
For those facing a cold winter, the opportunity for a little nice
weather and sunshine in Los Angeles, as well as excellent training and
certification for free is a pretty good proposition.
