[prMac.com] Adelaide, Australia - Lava Software is now shipping PasswordVault v6.1, a simple and practical enterprise-level password manager for Windows, MacOS X and Linux. This new version offers instant search abilities, makes it easy to add new entries by dropping a web address onto a dropbox on the main window, includes easy data backup, single user and multi-user password and web bookmark management and synchronization over LAN and Internet, compatibility to all web browsers on all platforms, automatic backup before manual imports, easy printing of online synchronization information (for setting up online sync on other computers), and various enhancements and optimizations. Desktop and portable USB stick versions are available. It is a free upgrade for all users.
Standard features in PasswordVault include auto-filling of Web forms (two-click logins), very strong 896-bit Blowfish encryption, online synchronization (with an additional layer of 128-bit AES encryption, for a total of 1024-bit encryption strength), a unique Master Password Recovery System (MPRS), random password generator, auto-lock timer with clipboard clear, very powerful import and export functions (for easy backup and transfer), masked passwords, user defined service categories, editable notes, selectable skins, transparent global floating window, detailed reports after portable/desktop sync, and enhanced support for use in large organizations (The University of Illinois purchased site licenses of PasswordVault for their campuses at Urbana-Champaign, Chicago and Springfield in 2004, renewing their license in 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008). The portable version (bundled free with the desktop version) runs directly off USB flash drives and iPods, providing users with secure access to their data when they're on the road, as well as the convenience of auto-synchronization when they return to their desktop computer.
The Professional Edition offers additional features for password management and control within organizations, including secure auto-distribution (via shared network drives on LANs or via Web server URLs), secure multi-user password synchronization, and logging of auto-exports and auto-import service changes. It provides a simple but powerful cross-platform enterprise-level password management solution for companies, schools, universities and other organizations. The auto-distribution system is very flexible. For example, it can ensure a group of normal users always have the latest passwords managed by a privileged user, it can keep passwords in selected categories synchronized between a group of users, or it can synchronize privileged users and propagate changes to normal users.
