WASHINGTON, Feb. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Thycotic, a leading provider of enterprise privileged account management (PAM) solutions for more than 3,500 global organizations, today announced that Community IT Innovators has selected Thycotic Secret Server to effectively manage privileged accounts for their client base. Thycotic Secret Server was chosen because of its lightweight installation and maintenance, secure ability to audit and manage privileged passwords, and ability to address all of the organizations' major needs out of the box. Additional details on Thycotic's work with Community IT Innovators can be found in this video.
Community IT Innovators has made a long standing commitment to helping nonprofits use technology efficiently by providing managed IT services to more than 150 organizations with thousands of endpoints across the US. Prior to Thycotic, the organization utilized a homegrown proprietary repository to store and access sensitive passwords for clients. As they grew, Community IT Innovators realized they needed to utilize a solution that was much more scalable, secure, and had capabilities to audit credential usage and change passwords regularly on privileged customer accounts.
"Managing over 35 technicians accessing more than 150 client networks was definitely a pain point for us," said Matt Eshleman, Chief Technology Officer, Community IT Innovators. "We needed a solution that would scale and allow us to more securely audit, manage and report access to our client's privileged accounts. Having a system like Thycotic Secret Server that provides a secure repository, auditing on passwords, and the ability to jumphost directly into applications is important because it gives you a control and visibility into the number of systems that you're managing."
With Thycotic Secret Server, Community IT Innovators can take advantage of flexible scalability options for storing and regularly rotating privileged passwords, such as domain administrator credentials, as their client base continues to grow. With strong auditing on privileged users, the company can now enforce granular access controls on client systems and effectively manage passwords from an easy to use, centralized console.
"Thycotic Secret Server is currently used across Community IT Innovators as an added layer of PAM and password protection when technicians are accessing client systems," said Thycotic Founder and CTO Jonathan Cogley. "Not only are they able to practice better PAM internally, but also offer it as an added security service to clients who trust the company with managing their sensitive infrastructure."
Thycotic Secret Server was deployed and running within a few hours, which allowed Community IT Innovators to begin auditing and managing privileged passwords immediately. Because the solution is built for IT professionals, adoption of the tool has been positive and successful among technicians.
