Simeio Solutions Announces Privileged Identity and Cloud Security Intelligence “as a Service.”
San Francisco, CA – April 20, 2015 : Simeio Solutions today announced two new security-focused Identity and Access Management (IAM) solutions “as-a-Service” at the RSA Conference in San Francisco:
- Privileged Identity as a Service
- Cloud Security and Intelligence as a Service
Simeio Privileged Identity as a Service is focused on managing, monitoring and protecting “privileged” user accounts – the powerful super-user or administrator accounts that provide wide-ranging access across an organization’s IT infrastructure.
Simeio Cloud Security and Intelligence as a Service provides granular threat visibility and ensures compliance of an organization’s entire cloud footprint by combining threat detection, predictive analytics, security configuration management, and automated incident response into a single solution.
These new solutions bolster the security features of Simeio Business-Ready IAM Cloud, Simeio’s groundbreaking Identity-as-a-Service (IDaaS) solution. Simeio Business-Ready IAM Cloud provides a simple and low-cost alternative to building and maintaining an IAM infrastructure, with enhanced Privileged Identity and Cloud Security Intelligence capabilities. It provides clients with best-in-class solutions from leading identity and cloud security providers including Palerra, ObserveIT, and Lieberman Software, while eliminating the hardware costs, in many cases the software licenses, and the ongoing maintenance and upgrade costs, too.
These new security offerings come on the heels of Simeio’s recently announced Identity Management and Security as a Service solution for the Healthcare Industry by bringing Saviynt’s next generation Access Governance and Intelligence solution to Simeio Business-Ready IAM Cloud.
As the number and variety of systems in the IT environment have mushroomed, so too has the challenge of protecting them. More and more services that enterprises rely on are moving to the cloud. Today, for example, an enterprise can have dozens of privileged user accounts across a variety of on-premise and cloud-based services such as CRM, accounting, ERP, file sharing, payroll and HR systems. These accounts require special attention because they are the “keys to the kingdom.” Attackers and malicious insiders target these accounts because they offer unfettered access to sensitive information and control of the entire IT environment.
In making the announcement, Simeio Solutions CEO Hemen Vimadalal said, “In today’s IT environment, Identity has become the new security perimeter. Maintaining this perimeter requires highly specialized solutions designed to manage and monitor privileged accounts, and to detect and prevent malicious activity across a wide range of cloud-based services that live well outside the traditional corporate firewall.”
Vimadalal noted that, “given the complexity of most IT environments, installing and managing these solutions can be a difficult, expensive and time-consuming effort, and requires difficult-to-find people with niche skills and expertise.”
“By combining best-of-breed solutions into a single, on-demand platform delivered ‘as-a-Service’ through our Simeio Business-Ready IAM Cloud and backed by the industry’s first and only Identity Intelligence Center, our clients get leading security capabilities with rapid time to value and reduced Total Cost of Ownership,” said Vimadalal.
Rohit Gupta, founder and CEO of Palerra, said, “We are excited that this partnership provides advanced cloud security automation and cloud intelligence as a service through LORIC and the Simeio Business-Ready IAM Cloud. As proven by recent high-profile security breaches, perimeter defenses need to be strengthened from within. The focus needs to be on the cloud services themselves and their rapid adoption has necessitated a new approach to automated security defined by machine learning, advanced analytics, automation and remediation. This partnership with Simeio offers the industry a highly tuned and advanced approach to protecting this ever-growing threat vector.”
Marc Potter, Vice President, Corporate Strategy at ObserveIT, noted, “User activity monitoring of privileged users has become a requirement to improve security, simplify compliance and reduce the risk of a data breach. ObserveIT has an innovative solution to quickly identify user-based risk and respond to suspicious behavior through continuous monitoring of user activity. Partnering with Simeio to deliver Privileged Identity and User Intelligence as a Service will provide the visibility needed for users accessing sensitive data on premise or in the cloud.”
Amit Saha, COO of Saviynt, added, “Saviynt has created a unique healthcare focused solution that extends traditional Identity and Access Governance (IAG) capabilities to provide Application Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC), Data Access Governance (DAG) and Identity Intelligence for critical EMRs, clinical, enterprise and Cloud applications. Our solution combined with Simeio services offers a compelling proposition for our customers to streamline their security and address mandates such as HIPAA, Meaningful Use, and support secure Cloud adoption.”
“We are pleased to have been selected by Simeio as a key component of their cloud-based Privileged Identity Management offering” said Philip Lieberman, CEO and president of Lieberman Software. “PIM in the cloud is a natural evolution and one we have been carefully planning for. Simeio’s deployment of our multi-tenant, Adaptive Privilege Management Suite will enable rapid time to value and deliver a simplified deployment option for our clients, with less complexity and at a lower price point.”
