The KuppingerCole Compass describes Privileged Access Management (PAM) as one of the most important areas of risk management and security in any organization. "This has largely been driven by changes in business computing practices and compliance demands from governments and trading bodies, as well as increased levels of cybercrime. Digital transformation, regulations such as GDPR, the shift to the cloud and, most recently, the growth of DevOps in organizations looking to accelerate their application development processes" explained Paul Fisher, Lead Analyst at KuppingerCole.
Within the evaluation of 24 vendors and their products, WALLIX is recognized as a leader in all segments due to the successful execution of its Ambition21 strategy and investment in new products, "having a broad set of features and innovative features". In 2019 WALLIX introduced new capabilities of its WALLIX Bastion PAM solution, for which Paul Fisher highlights WALLIX's product strategy in stating: "WALLIX has been steadily improving its product" in particular with new product features for Controlled Privilege Escalation and Delegation Management (CEPDM) and Endpoint Privilege Management (EPM).
The report also confirms WALLIX's strengths with "leading privilege session management (PSM) capabilities” and “proven in multiple operating environments including OT, industrial and SCADA” driving WALLIX towards new business market opportunities. Another factor in WALLIX's position as a market leader is the fact that the WALLIX Bastion suite "supports a broad range of targets for on-premise systems and cloud environments" and can be deployed in a variety of ways according to customer environment, budget, and risk profile: public cloud platforms, virtual infrastructure, or on-premise options are available to best fit the need.
