Lieberman Software Corporation, a Platinum Award Winner of last year’s 2016 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program, is continuing to set the pace as the company’s Lieberman RED Suite has been nominated to compete in the 2017 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards.
The Lieberman RED – Rapid Enterprise Defense™ – Intrusion Remediation Suite consists of five cyber security modules that help government IT groups identify and repair weaknesses in security configuration, implement strong privileged identity management, and provide automated remediation when a cyber-attack is detected.
The RED Suite is a complete Proactive Cyber Defense Platform that protects organizations against malicious insiders, advanced persistent threats (APTs) and other sophisticated cyber attacks – on-premises, in the cloud and in hybrid environments.
More than 1,800 organizations worldwide – including a large base of federal customers – deploy the RED Suite.
Protecting Federal Agencies
“Federal government agencies are high value targets of advanced cyber attacks,” explains Philip Lieberman, President and CEO of Lieberman Software.
“Through the CDM Program, the DHS is taking the right steps to protect sensitive government systems.
“The Lieberman RED Suite can provide a critical cyber defense layer against attacks targeting government organizations, while also helping federal agencies with key CDM initiatives.”
“We provide a highly-automated solution that can be quickly deployed to large government environments, so costs to taxpayers for implementation are very low and ongoing costs are almost zero,” Lieberman added.
“And by reducing manual IT tasks – like changing passwords by hand – we help government IT workers focus on more strategic initiatives.”
“This makes everyone happier and contributes to federal employee retention of highly skilled cyber defense staff.”
The Lieberman RED Suite adds a critical cyber defense layer against attacks targeting government organizations by proactively responding to cyber attacks and interactively healing compromised IT environments.
It is also valuable in reducing the costs of IT administration and compliance for federal government agencies.

And by reducing manual IT tasks – like changing passwords by hand – the suite helps government IT workers focus on more strategic initiatives.
The Lieberman RED Suite also helps government agencies better verify their compliance with regulatory mandates such as CAG, FISMA/NIST, FIPS, NERC and others by auditing privileged account activity.
This includes logging privileged access to systems, network devices, databases, cloud platforms and applications – detailing who on the IT staff had access to systems with sensitive data, at what time and for what stated purpose.

It also lets you generate reports covering accounts, groups, event data, installed software and patches, registry values, policies, trusts, and more.
How It Works
The Lieberman RED Suite delivers a continuous cycle of proactive cyber defense in four phases:
- Interactively building maps and reports of systems, identities, permissions, compromises and security configuration
- Closing discovered security gaps by repairing poor security, systems and identity configurations
- Providing secure, controlled access to credentials, delegating escalation and running privileged programs securely
- Automatically discovering and changing credentials at any scale with no human interaction.
- Responding to threats in seconds with automated mitigation triggered by SIEM and/or threat intelligence feeds
The Lieberman RED Suite is built on technology developed by Lieberman Software dating back to 1997.
This technology is deployed to protect more than one billion users per month across government, national defense and commercial sectors.
- Automatically discover privileged accounts in the cross-platform enterprise
- Randomize, store and retrieve privileged account passwords, including firecall account passwords, shared administrator passwords
- Ensure workstations and laptops (Windows, Linux, Unix, etc.) have their local administrator/root account password changed regularly – irrespective of their connectivity to the network
- Provide secure, self-service user password resets and unlocks
- Identify and disable stale user accounts, and produce compliance reports
- Deploy without installing agents or scripts
- Provide secure storage of privileged passwords in a SQL Server database
- Generate real-time reports for system and security settings on managed systems; integrate with your SIEM system
- Identify, analyze and modify all Windows service properties concurrently from one console
- Add, remove and edit scheduled tasks on every Windows system; copy and paste tasks with ease
- Block malicious software and other unauthorized programs from executing with our patented Cratering feature
Lieberman RED – Rapid Enterprise DefenseTM Identity Management was recently recognized as the Overall ID Management Solution of the Year in the 2017 Cybersecurity Breakthrough Awards, which recognizes the top companies, products, innovation and people in the cybersecurity industry.
The Cybersecurity Breakthrough Awards were judged by experienced cybersecurity professionals who have worked within the information security space – including journalists, analysts and technology executives.
“This award is the latest validation of RED Identity Management’s innovative approach to cyber security,” said Lieberman.
“Being awarded the Overall ID Management Solution of the Year is an honor because it recognizes how our privileged identity management solution uniquely automates the process of discovering and changing privileged credentials at any scale, with no human interaction.”

Lieberman RED is also developed solely in the USA – and supported by US-based personnel.

Today’s vulnerability scanning tools are utilized to locate weaknesses in federal government networks that may be exploited by intruders.
However, these tools do not repair the problems that are identified.
The Lieberman RED Suite disrupts intrusions rapidly, immediately and interactively with surgical precision.
It provides tools to handle the consequences of cyber intrusions.
The five modules of the suite limit the lifetime of stolen credentials, eliminate well-known and shared credentials, and kill off unauthorized installed software.
