Privileged Access Management Partnership

CyberArk Software : 10 June, 2010  (Company News)
Avecto and Cyber-Ark enter partnership offering privileged and administrative access and activity management throughout the enterprise on Microsoft Windows computers
Cyber-Ark Software has announced a strategic partnership with Avecto. By enhancing Cyber-Ark's Privileged Identity Management (PIM) Suite with Avecto's advanced Privilege Guard solution, joint customers benefit from the industry's only complete solution for securing, managing and tracking all privileged and administrative activities across an organization's entire infrastructure, from Windows desktops and laptops, to servers, databases, hypervisors, network devices and any other system within the organization.

This partnership further extends Cyber-Ark's impact within and across the enterprise by allowing the resale of Avecto's Privilege Guard products to new PIM Suite customers as well as Cyber-Ark's more than 650 current worldwide customers. Organizations can now choose a single vendor to deliver best-in-class solutions for all their critical productivity, security, audit and management requirements related to privileged users and accounts.

"Enhancing Cyber-Ark's award-winning PIM Suite with the Avecto Privilege Guard creates instant value for new and existing customers, providing the industry's first single vendor solution that solves both their privileged account and privileged user management challenges," said Udi Mokady, CEO of Cyber-Ark Software. "This agreement will strengthen the overall security posture for enterprises, allowing them to secure, manage and monitor all privileged accounts and activities associated with data centre management, whether on-premises or in the cloud."

A complete privileged identity management solution consists of managing shared, administrative and application accounts, monitoring privileged activities with session control and recording, as well as allowing on-demand privileged access to administrative accounts. Cyber-Ark is the pioneer and global market leader for privileged identity management solutions.

"Teaming with Cyber-Ark Software represents a tremendous opportunity for Avecto and its customers," said Tony Bolland, CEO of Avecto. "The combination of Cyber-Ark's PIM Suite and Avecto Privilege Guard delivers a comprehensive solution that has been requested by the largest global organizations. This joint offering will make it possible for 'one-stop shopping' and provide a unified services and support environment for our mutual customers."

Avecto Privilege Guard enables organizations to adopt the principle of least privilege and eliminate admin rights. It is no longer necessary to assign admin rights to users, as these rights can now be assigned on-demand to applications, tasks and scripts. Privilege Guard allows users to log on to corporate Windows systems with minimal rights and empowers them to perform their day-to-day role, without compromising their integrity and security.
