ThycoticCentrify Unveils “Definitive Guide to Securing Privileged Access”

ThycoticCentrify
Newly merged ThycoticCentrify is a leading cloud identity security vendor, enabling digital transformation at scale, with the company's industry-leading privileged access management (PAM) solutions that reduce risk, complexity, and cost while securing organizations' data, devices, and code across cloud, on-premises, and hybrid environments.

Thycotic, a leading provider of privileged access management (PAM) solutions for more than 12,500 organizations worldwide, and a Platinum Award Winner in the 2019, 2018 and 2016 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Programs, recently merged with Centrify, a leading provider of modern privileged access management solutions to over half of the Fortune 100.

PAM, one of the fastest-growing areas in cyber-security today, is expected to double from $2.2B to $5.4B by 2025, according to KuppingerCole.

Organizations struggle to keep up with the complexity of protecting the ever-growing number of privileged accounts created by the business requirements to move more infrastructure and services into the cloud.

This cloud-centric business transformation has created more opportunities for cyber-attackers and driven a greater need for better control and compliance around these types of accounts.

(Find out why cloud security is more important in 2021 than ever before, as explained by Joseph Carson, Chief Security Scientist at Thycotic. To try the PAM Cloud Security product Joe’s talking about, go to thycotic.com/products/secret-server.) 

Backed by the financial strength of TPG Capital, the combined company brings together complementary product capabilities, best-in-class technology, and deep expertise to better enable and protect the modern, hybrid enterprise in an environment defined by ever-increasing, identity-based cyber-attacks.

“The accelerated use of cloud services has skyrocketed in recent years, and we believe ThycoticCentrify is uniquely qualified to meet the evolving identity security needs across all industries,” explains Art Gilliland, CEO, ThycoticCentrify.

“Our combined organization will deliver comprehensive PAM solutions built in the cloud, for the cloud that our customers require to enable their business transformation.”

Together, the newly integrated ThycoticCentrify, have released a new ‘Definitive Guide to Securing Privileged Access,‘ which was published in conjunction with CyberEdge Group.

Definitive Guide™ to Securing Privileged Access

The ‘Definitive Guide to Securing Privileged Access’ free eBook addresses the urgent challenges of protecting a multitude of users accessing critical data in the cloud.

The guide explains how the rapidly evolving IT landscape has made traditional approaches to PAM obsolete as more organizations than ever rely on applications and services hosted in the cloud.

“Every user potentially has access to privileged or sensitive information,” according to the guide.

“This means the compromise of a single user’s credentials can all too readily be exploited by cyber criminals to escalate privileges and gain access across your entire network, undetected.”

ThycoticCentrify’s “Definitive Guide to Securing Privileged Access” explores:

  • The basics of PAM and how the discipline is evolving.

  • The risks associated with privileged access when transitioning to the cloud.

  • How to align PAM with overall security priorities and the elements needed for a successful program.

  • Next steps for securing hybrid cloud and multi-cloud architectures.

  • What to look for when choosing advanced privileged access security solutions.

“Our goal at ThycoticCentrify is to help our customers manage their users securely, from IT admins to the C-suite, to third party contractors,” said James Legg, president at ThycoticCentrify.

“This guide helps to educate and lay the groundwork for IT professionals to plan and enforce a least privilege security strategy as they move to the cloud.”
