includes: 24/7/365 management of high

availability and performance optimization, release management,

administration, and reporting. These new capabilities combine with

Optiv’s strategic consulting services as well the company’s technology

resale, implementation and integration services to provide clients

with a holistic, end-to-end managed identity solution. Optiv is teaming

with CyberArk ,

the global privileged access security leader, for this initial launch to

help extend this critical layer of IT security to protect data,

infrastructure and assets across the enterprise, in the cloud and

throughout the DevOps pipeline.

“With breaches, often due to internal threats, connected devices and

unprotected data on the rise, ensuring security via an effective

identity and access management program is critical,” said Bryan Wiese,

Optiv’s vice president, advisory services. “A successful IAM program

should be approached strategically, from the inside out, beginning at

the core of the security operation, evaluating current needs, business

drivers, and risks. With this information in hand, organizations can

optimize their IAM programs to ensure proper infrastructure management.

“In addition, every organization should include privileged accounts as a

key component of its IAM program because they are high targets that

offer attackers more access for their effort.”

Unprotected privileged credentials pose a problem on two dimensions:

They give certain individuals universal access to the most sensitive

systems, which poses a potential insider threat, and credentials are the

primary target of cyber attackers enabling them to penetrate corporate

networks. In fact, most damaging attacks involve stolen privileged

credentials. In addition, the expansion of the enterprise attack surface

through trends like mobile, cloud and the internet of things (IoT),

combined with the chronic cyber security skills shortage, have

exacerbated the privileged credentials problem: There are more attack

vectors than ever into enterprises and few people who have the skills to

effectively protect and manage those credentials.

Optiv’s Privileged Access Managed Service helps organizations overcome

these issues by giving clients access to a wealth of privileged access

management expertise, delivered by an experienced managed services


“CyberArk has a strong relationship with Optiv and is working closely

with them to help customers prioritize privileged access security as a

core risk management initiative,” said Scott Whitehouse, vice president,

channels and alliances, CyberArk. “Based on Optiv’s experience in the

security industry, the company is well-positioned to support

organizations that have implemented CyberArk make the most of their

deployments and quickly benefit from the exceptional simplicity,

automation and risk reduction that only CyberArk delivers.”
