Centrify Chief Product Officer Bill MannCentrify, the leader in securing hybrid enterprises through the power of identity services, has overnight announced its inclusion as a representative vendor in Gartner’s 2017 Market Guide for Privileged Access Management (PAM).
RThe increasingly hybrid nature of infrastructure, driven by the adoption of cloud-based workloads, is driving the need to secure privileged access across on-premises, private-cloud and public cloud infrastructure and apps with a single solution. Gartner predicts that “Through 2020, more than half of security failures associated with Iaas and PaaS will be attributable to significant security gaps caused by failure to adopt PAM technology and processes”.
Gartner designates Privileged Account and Session Management (PASM) along with Privilege Elevation and Delegation Management (PEDM) as two distinct tool categories that have evolved as the predominant focus for security and risk management leaders considering investment in PAM tools.
Centrify is unique in providing a single solution for PASM and cross-platform PEDM. Built-in house, Centrify’s solution controls privileged access for individual and shared accounts in the hybrid enterprise. Centrify simplifies the implementation of PAM best practices and strengthens an organisation’s risk posture to stop the breach.
Centrify chief product officer Bill Mann said Centrify was honoured by its inclusion by Gartner as a representative vendor again this year. “This report provides valuable insights into the need for a comprehensive privileged access management solution that includes PASM, PEDM, MFA and native CAC/PIV support,” he said. “This report also comes on the heels of Centrify being positioned as a leader in the KuppingerCole Leadership Compass for Privilege Management.”
When Diane Beer, the eldest child of Australian legend RM Williams, died in July this year, she left a lifetime legacy that stood proudly beside that of her iconic father
Although her life lasted 87 years, Diane almost lost it as an infant. Living in the missionary settlement of Nepabunna in the northern Flinders Range, she woke one morning, in the cot she shared sleeping foot to foot with baby brother Ian, to a whispered “sssshhhh”.
The warning came from Ruth, the teenage Aboriginal babysitter, who leaned over the cot, picked up the snake that during the cold night had nestled in the warmth between the sleeping infants and flung it as far as she could.
Ruth still lived in Nepabunna when Diane visited a few years ago. The two women embraced, recognising each other as if the 70 years’ past was no further than you could throw a snake.
During the nearly nine decades of her life, Diane - born Thelma Diane Williams - filled many roles, as daughter, wife, mother, friend, trailblazing journalist, writer, confidant, mentor and more, winning love and respect with her perceptive mind, her compassionate heart and her irreverent sense of humour.
UltraServe has continued its global expansion by launching a London office to deliver its managed e-commerce services in Britain and Europe.Australian commerce specialist
Driven by demand from clients seeking to strengthen their e-commerce offerings in the region, the new office, located at Eastbourne Terrace opposite Paddington Station, already has local staff.
London is UltraServe’s second offshore office, after Chicago, which continues to grow rapidly with staff numbers passing the double-digit mark during the past year. UltraServe also has offices in Sydney, at Pyrmont and in the Central Coast suburb of Erina.
UltraServe, a private company whose owners include founder Samuel Yeats and technology investor Simon Hackett, is a specialist provider of e-commerce services in the cloud.
UltraServe CEO Matthew Hyland said he expected the UK office to grow like the US office. “Based on demand, I expect we will grow staff numbers rapidly within the next 12 months,” he said. “London is a great place for our second international office. This location is a good hub that allows us to serve the whole of the European market. The UK itself represents a large market opportunity and, importantly, it’s where many of our partners are based.”
