WASHINGTON, May 23, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Thycotic, a provider of privileged account management (PAM) solutions for more than 7,500 organizations worldwide, today announced its Privileged Ready Program. This program highlights the breadth of Thycotic’s integration capabilities with a number of leading security vendors around the world.
“Our customers need the ability to manage all users’ access to a variety of systems, applications, and data, but they also need to apply stronger controls to those users that have privileged accounts,” said Joe Gottlieb, senior vice president of corporate development for SailPoint. “By partnering with Thycotic, we’re helping joint customers achieve a single point of governance across routine and privileged access. Thycotic’s Privilege Ready Program will accelerate our collective reach into privileged accounts on all systems and applications.”
Thycotic recognizes that most organizations have existing security solutions in place that need to be protected and integrated with a Privileged Account Management solution for enhanced security and protection capabilities. Every other security tool has administrative credentials embedded in the product that needs to be protected so that these tools cannot be compromised and bypassed by attackers. Additionally, many of these tools, such as Vulnerability Scanners, need access to privileged credentials in order to conduct deeper scans.
With the new Thycotic Privilege Ready Program, organizations can now implement Thycotic’s Secret Server into their ecosystems to add protection across the company with privileged accounts. The program currently highlights integrations with more than 20 distinct vendors and will be fully integrated with more than 50 organizations by the end of the year. Thycotic’s Privilege Ready Program covers different levels of integration from API access, documentation, training and rebranding.
“As organizations look to build out their complete architecture, Thycotic is a trusted PAM solution that they can turn to as it integrates with many of the leading security vendors out there,” said Joseph Carson, Chief Security Scientist at Thycotic. “This vast strategic integration program gives companies the opportunity to understand the importance of protecting their keys to the kingdom while learning how vital a privileged account management solution is to their comprehensive architecture.”
