TWS/IWS - develop integration with CyberArk to provide better security and password management.
As the need for tigher security increases, we are facing a need to better manage the passwords associated with IWS on Windows agents. We need to be able to change the streamlogon user (and the "TWS user") passwords more often, use a more challenging password scheme and in general limit people's knowledge of the password by putting it into a vault where it can be checked out as needed (logged). To that end, we are looking to integrate IWS with CyberArk. We need HCL to develop an integration between IWS and CyberArk to get the streamlogon's user password (also the TWS user password) at launch time for jobs as well as any other time it might be needed from the vault (CyberArk). It also needs to support the windows services required to support an IWS agent on Windows. We are looking for a partnership between HCL and CyberArk to produce the integration developed with an SDK from CyberArk.
