BeyondTrust, the leader in intelligent identity and access security, announced today a new strategic partnership with NCS Group, a leading technology services firm that provides services and solutions in consulting, digital, technology, cybersecurity, and more. A strong player in identity security, NCS will be using the technology provided by BeyondTrust to offer companies best practice solutions in Privileged Access Management (PAM), a core component of enabling Zero Trust security.
Organizations today are evolving because of digital transformation, an accelerating shift to the cloud, and an expanded remote workforce. However, these changes are also creating an increase in vulnerable endpoints and remote access, as well as many digital identities that pose a significant cybersecurity risk if left unmanaged and unsecured. According to Gartner, unauthorized privileged access is now the primary method that threat attackers use to infiltrate an organization’s systems and network.
From the rise of ransomware to an increased focus on digital transformation and Zero Trust strategies, it is a critical time for organizations to be equipped with solutions that can secure identities, safeguard access for remote employees, and strengthen endpoint security across hybrid environments, through this partnership, BeyondTrust and NCS will enable organizations in Asia Pacific with our Privileged Access Management (PAM) solutions to address these cybersecurity challenges.”
When organizations think of access management, they may only think of traditional password management and that should not be the case. There is an urgent need for organizations to implement more advanced endpoint security and access management solutions and many are still playing catch up in this area, this partnership with NCS enables us to provide tailored PAM solutions to customers across a wide range of industries from government to the commercial sectors. Combining the skills and experience of NCS with BeyondTrust’s leading portfolio of PAM solutions will help their customers defend against the evolving threat landscape.” Ben Wong, Director of Channel and Alliance for Asia Pacific & Japan at BeyondTrust.
