For example, IPC, a SUBWAY Franchisee Owned Org Relies on Thycotic Privileged Access Management Solutions to Help Protect Enterprise Class Network
Independent Purchasing Cooperative (IPC), the supply chain management company for Subway restaurants, is expanding its Thycotic Secret Server to consolidate, manage and protect privileged account access across its global network.
To manage the purchasing, distribution, and quality assurance for Subway restaurants in North America, IPC operates an enterprise IT network primarily utilizing the Windows platform and Active Directory.
Recently moving into a security devops engineer position at IPC, Rick Roca has been focusing on making the IT environment more secure through privileged account management and security with Thycotic Secret Server.
“While we had been using Secret Server for quite a while to store passwords,” Roca recalled, “we really wanted to expand our use of it as a privilege account management tool.”
He said Thycotic Secret Server software enables enterprises such as IPC to discover, store, secure and manage privileged account passwords with a single, centralized solution that’s “very simple and easy to use.”
“Discovering who has access to what servers is critical for us and I’m working with Thycotic professional services to develop an extensible discovery engine for us,” Roca noted.
“This helps us spot common passwords on machines, and really start hardening our security from a credential and privileged account standpoint.”
He mentioned automating the changing or regular rotation of passwords as a key benefit of Secret Server, “and the advanced features in session recording are priceless for troubleshooting.”
From Zero to Hero in Two Weeks
“We have expanded our use of Secret Server to further harden our environment,” Roca explained.
“Thycotic helps organizations remove local AD accounts from servers, manage access to privileged accounts, and add important security controls such as two-factor.”
“Each service on each server has its own independent password so even if one is compromised, an attacker can’t go anywhere,” Roca continued.
“And we implemented it in a matter of days—from zero to hero in two weeks.”
People who Constantly Go the Extra Mile
Roca also characterized Thycotic Secret Server technical support as “people who constantly go the extra mile to help you get things done, help you get problems solved and to really make sure you are successful…Whether it’s professional services, or just technical support for troubleshooting, the Thycotic team is always there to help.”
Summing up IPC’s relationship with Thycotic, Roca said, “You’re not going to find a tool that brings more value in such a short amount of time, and with as little effort as Thycotic Secret Server. Along with a price point that’s unbeatable.”
“We are pleased to have worked with IPC over the years to improve and expand their use of Thycotic Secret Server to secure and centralize their privileged account management,” said James Legg, Thycotic’s President and CEO.
“With privileged accounts a constant target for hackers, it’s critical that enterprises have easy, effective and affordable ways to more productively manage and secure their privileged accounts.”
Thycotic is one of the world’s fastest growing IT security companies because they provide customers with the freedom to choose cloud or on premise software solutions that are the easiest to implement and use in the industry, and serve more than 7,500 customers.
