WALLIX ADMINBASTION SUITE IS NOW AVAILABLE ON THE CLOUD (06/12/2016 18:00)
WALLIX, a developer of cybersecurity and information systems access management solutions, announces that its ADMINBASTION Suite solution is now:
- Certified for Microsoft Azure Marketplace
- Available in the Amazon Linux AMI environment (supplied by Amazon Web Services - AWS)
WALLIX ADMINBASTION (WAB) Suite protects your data and ensures the compliance of privileged user activity, by recording sessions and managing passwords. With this new version, WALLIX undertakes and acquires the means to support its clients and its network of partners in their transition to cloud computing.
Certification and the availability of our solution on the cloud, via Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS), enables our clients and our network of partners to access and quickly deploy WAB Suite. They can therefore very easily secure their applications and data on the cloud.
The advantage of the Azure and AWS environments is that they are fully configurable, agile, offer high availability and optimise scalability (immediate access from Microsoft Azure and a private AMI at your disposal for simplified and centralised deployment management). The bastion host also makes it possible to oversee transitions to cloud computing, by managing and securing hybrid environments (cloud-hosted instances shared with instances deployed on site).
WALLIX's new version of the bastion host also makes it easier for existing clients to migrate to password management, thereby optimising privileged access management. Functions such as multi-screen management and workflow optimisation are also included in WAB 5.0.2.
“We are very pleased with this announcement. The Azure and AWS environments very quickly acquired the maturity required to meet the demands of complex projects that support the growth of numerous companies. The new cloud-based version of WAB Suite gives many companies the opportunity to rethink their processes, not only in terms of costs but also with greater concern for the security of their digital assets.” declares Serge Adda, CTO of WALLIX.
WALLIX Group is a cybersecurity software editor dedicated to defending and fostering organizations' success and renown against the cyberthreats they are facing. For over a decade, WALLIX has strived to protect companies, public organizations, as well as service providers' most critical IT and strategic assets against data breaches, making it the European expert in Privileged Access Management.
As digitalization impacts companies' IT security and data integrity worldwide, it poses an even greater challenge if the data involved is highly sensitive. The recent regulatory changes in Europe (NIS/GDPR) and in the United States (NERC CIP/Cyber Security Directorate) urge companies belonging to sensitive sectors to place cybersecurity at the heart of their activity.
In response to these challenges, WALLIX created a bastion designed to secure organizations' core assets while adapting to their daily operational duties: WALLIX ADMINBASTION Suite. The WALLIX bastion accompanies more than 100 operators in sensitive sectors to conform with regulations and over 400 organizations in the protection of their critical assets, securing the access to more than 100,000 resources throughout Europe and the MEA region. It was also the first government-certified solution in the market. WALLIX partners with a trained and certified network of over 90 resellers and distributors that help guarantee effective deployment and user adoption.
WALLIX is the first European cybersecurity software editor to be publicly traded and can be found on Euronext under the code ALLIX. As one of the leaders of the PAM market, major players trust WALLIX to secure access to their data: Danagas, Dassault Aviation, Gulf Air, Maroc Telecom, McDonald's, and Michelin are among them.
The WALLIX bastion was elected “Best Buy” by SC Magazine and awarded at the 2016 Computing Security Awards, BPI Excellence, and Pôle Systematic.
