Thycotic Account Lifecycle Manager Adds Integration With AWS, Azure, and Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) to Streamline Service Account Governance
Native integrations and webhooks accelerate implementation and ensure data quality among previously siloed systems
Washington, D.C., March 16, 2021 — Thycotic, a provider of Privileged Access Management (PAM) solutions for more than 12,500 organizations worldwide, including 25 percent of the Fortune 100, today announced enhancements to Thycotic Account Lifecycle Manager, its industry-leading solution for service account governance. The latest version of Account Lifecycle Manager (ALM) makes it easier for IT teams to govern service accounts via the same tools and workflow they already use, without having to switch systems or contexts.
Privileged service accounts which connect applications, databases, root accounts, and other IT systems share sensitive information and perform business-critical processes, often automatically. Yet, most service accounts have no accountable owners and can easily be forgotten and unmanaged. Even when security teams discover them, they rarely know their purpose and are afraid to decommission them. Thycotic Account Lifecycle Manager makes it possible for enterprises to manage a large, diverse set of service accounts with end-to-end governance, from discovery and provisioning through decommissioning. No other PAM solution provides full control over the lifecycle of service accounts.
“Service accounts are often left defenseless, even by enterprises with established programs for privileged user security, because they require so many extra steps to manage,” said Jai Dargan, Vice President of Product Management at Thycotic. “With Thycotic Account Lifecycle Manager, teams can now build service account management into the tools and processes already in use, reducing risk without adding friction or taking time away from their other priorities.”
New and expanded integrations include:
- Enhancements to ALM’s integration with Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) improve security for role permissions and provides users with single sign-on access to systems and applications across organizational boundaries.
- Customers that use AWS Secrets Manager and Azure Key Vault to house cloud credentials can now use ALM to automate the management of these secrets throughout the privileged account lifecycle.
- ALM logs and event data map directly to Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solutions for streamlined event management.
- Updated webhooks allow for more efficient processing and direct access to on-prem resources.
