Optiv Security Announces Two New Offerings to Help Organizations Build Identity Centric Security Programs

Industry’s First Offerings Developed from Work of Identity Defined Security Alliance

Optiv Security, a market-leading provider of end-to-end cyber security solutions, announced the availability of two new identity and access management (IAM) offerings that support organizations trying to put identity at the core of their cyber security programs. The first is Optiv’s Identity Centric Security Workshop which provides an overview of IAM and related trends and vendors, assesses their current state and maturity, and offers recommendations on how to develop and implement a successful IAM program. The second offering is Optiv’s Ping Identity – Netskope Integrated Solution which enables context-based authentication and access policy enforcement for cloud applications, contributing to enhanced security, while giving users seamless access when appropriate.†

Optiv’s new IAM offerings are the industry’s first to result from the collaborative efforts of the†Identity Defined Security Alliance†(IDSA). This community of security vendors, solution providers, and end-user organizations is focused on establishing industry best practices and standards for building successful identity centric security programs. Optiv developed its new offerings in response to organizations’ specific IAM needs identified by the IDSA.†

“Enterprise-class organizations are concerned with the growing risk of security breaches caused by stolen or misused credentials. They continue to make significant investments in IAM and cyber security technologies but quickly find that point products alone will not solve their identity problems,” said Bryan Wiese, Optiv’s vice president and general manager of identity and access management. “Optiv’s new offerings go beyond a traditional IAM program and integrate existing IAM with other cyber security technologies to drive positive outcomes. As a result, clients can optimize their cyber security investment, while controlling risk, as IT infrastructures converge.”†

Details of Optiv’s new IAM offerings include:

  • Identity Centric Security (ICS) Workshop†– This multi-day workshop takes an identity centric approach to security as defined by the IDSA, enabling organizations to leverage existing cyber security and IAM investments. The workshop helps organizations prioritize identity goals based on tactical business objectives; assesses current-state pain points, organizational changes and “red flags;” and results in recommendations for a customized ICS roadmap and implementation plan.†
  • Ping Identity – Netskope Integrated Solution†– This solution, which includes†IDSA supported use cases, combines Optiv’s strategic consulting, proprietary software and implementation services with cloud application access data collected from Netskope’s cloud security platform and centralized access management from Ping Identity. The integration enables context-based authentication and access policy enforcement.

Optiv’s new IAM offerings are an integral component of the company’s comprehensive integrated solutions and services that enable organizations to plan, build and run successful cyber security programs.
