HERNDON, Va. - Thursday, July 19th 2012 [ME NewsWire]
(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Xceedium, Inc., the premier worldwide provider of Zero Trust privileged identity and access management solutions, today announced a partnership with Security Matterz to resell the Xceedium Xsuite™ platform. Utilizing its team of consultants and highly accredited technical engineers, Security Matterz will provide enhanced implementation and ongoing support for Xsuite customers in the Middle East.
“A key component of Xceedium’s continued success and growth is its expanding international client base,” said Xceedium EVP of Global Sales, Jay Zimmet. “Adding Security Matterz to the company’s Global Partner Network strengthens our position in the Middle East and ensures that Xceedium’s customers will receive proven technical services and support for Xsuite.”
The Security Matterz team has in-depth experience and expertise relative to both the commercial and government sectors and has a fully qualified technical staff that holds all the required levels of accreditation and qualification to support Xsuite customers.
Xceedium’s Xsuite platform protects organizations from security threats associated with privileged users, individuals and applications that have administrative access to the most sensitive IT infrastructure and business data. The highly scalable solution employs a Zero Trust model that implements role-based privileged access control, password vaulting and session recording to ensure that privileged users, such as network administrators and trusted third parties, have rights to access only the specific systems, devices and commands they require. Xceedium’s new Xsuite Cloud offering extends Zero Trust security controls to hybrid-cloud environments and provides a unified policy management capability. Unified policy management enables new enterprises to seamlessly manage security for critical infrastructure deployed on-premise, in public or private clouds, or any combination thereof.
“Today’s security risks include dangerous threats coming from employees and third parties that operate within the enterprise just as often if not more than threats from outsiders,” said Tony Lteif, Security Matterz CEO. “In order to mitigate the growing risk from privileged users, we sought out a leading enterprise-class solution to ensure that our clients are prepared and can always maintain the required levels of defense. We look forward to working with Xceedium and offering Xsuite to customers looking for the best in privileged identity and access management solutions.”
Xceedium channel partners benefit from a comprehensive training process, including sales training and pre- and post-sales technical training. Additionally, Xceedium solutions partners and systems integrators receive Xceedium Security Assessment enablement training.
