Omada Announces New Privileged Account Security Integration to Better Protect Organizations from Cyber Threats
Copenhagen, March 2017 - The global vendor of Identity & Access Governance solutions, Omada today announced a new technology integration with CyberArk, the leader in Privileged Account Security, to deliver an enhanced management, governance, and security solution for an organization’s entire identity portfolio in one integrated system.
Omada’s identity and access management solution enables organizations to help ensure security and compliance controls are met by identifying, attesting and maintaining ownership of all accounts across the organization, including generic and personal accounts used by privileged users. CyberArk provides enhanced security controls for these privileged accounts, including correlation of shared, anonymous highly-privileged account access to an identity and real-time visibility of privileged activities and usage. This Global Technology Partnership offers organizations the power to centrally manage and govern all identities and entitlements and better protect themselves from cyber threats by adding an extra layer of security on privileged accounts.
By integrating the Omada Identity Suite with the CyberArk Privileged Account Security Solution, customers can benefit from a centrally managed and governed solution for the lifecycle of all identities (access requests, approvals, certifications, provisioning and remediation) and entitlements - from business users and applications to privileged users and critical infrastructure, all in one single integrated platform. This enables organizations to create workflow and business processes across all accounts, and ensuring continuous governance and recertification. By integrating Omada with the HR-systems, additional context on the privileged user is provided e.g. automated management of joiners, movers and leavers tied to privileged accounts based on their business context.
Santeri Kangas, CTO at Omada is thrilled about the partnership with CyberArk and points out some of the joint customer benefits:
“The joint CyberArk and Omada solution benefits will enable our customers to standardize processes for managing all business and privileged user access within the organization. They will be able to provide in depth reporting on all access rights across the organization, privileged or otherwise, from a single pane of glass. By automating user provisioning and de-provisioning based on defined policies within Omada Identity Suite, organizations will reduce the administration overhead for privileged access.”
Many organizations use a silo approach with disparate solutions to manage identities and standard users in contrast to their privileged users and accounts. This often leads to inconsistency between the business processes defined with Identity Governance and Administration and the security requirements for Privileged Account Management.
“By combining the CyberArk Privileged Account Security Solution with the Omada Identity Suite, organizations can break out of this silo approach and bridge the gap between human resources, the business and security teams. We are hence very excited about this alliance as our joint customers, partners and service providers are now able to benefit from the most complete integrated Identity offering, mitigating the privileged access security risk, while increasing IT operational efficiency,” says Veronika Westerlund, Global VP Channels & Alliances at Omada.
Omada also announced today that it is a new member of the C3 Alliance, CyberArk’s global technology partner program that brings together enterprise software, IT security and service providers to build on the power of privileged account security to better protect customers from cyber threats.
