ALSO leverages Thycotic technology to provide Security Services that protect against Cyber Attacks

ALSO broadens its security portfolio and offers Thycotic security solutions in eight countries with immediate effect. Thycotic thoroughly secures privileged accounts in enterprise IT systems against cyber attacks, with more than 7,500 companies already trusting their services globally.

Privileged accounts are at the center of any IT system and serve as universal access for administrators to systems, applications and databases.

“Thycotic is market leader when it comes to security of privileged accounts. With Thycotic security solutions we offer our partners and customers additional solutions to administrate application rights and client management and check for security gaps. I am especially impressed by the solution’s scalability – originally developed for mid-sized sector businesses, today Thycotic is being used in corporate group IT systems,“ said Sasa Viro, Senior Vice President Solution Services of ALSO Holding AG.

“Leveraging our Secret Server solution, ALSO customers and partners will have the confidence that a fundamental security layer will be enforced to protect against cyber attacks. Our solution also automates the management and security of enterprise privileged accounts from one single console, saving both time and money while also reducing risk,” said Simon Azzopardi, Vice President EMEA & APAC of Thycotic.

Thycotic’s Secret Server, core application of the security solution, automatically identifies privileged accounts within IT landscapes, accumulates the data and safestores them in a password safe. Within this process any safety risk due to non-administrated accounts as well as compliance-relevant safety gaps are being detected. Moreover, in case of a cyber attack, passwords can be changed and renewed in very short time, helping companies to safeguard their systems.

Thycotic security solutions are available with immediate effect in Germany, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. For more information please contact thycotic@also.com.
