Thycotic Named Winner in Annual Cyber Defense Magazine Infosec Awards

Recognised as leader in privileged access security

London, U.K., March 4, 2019 –  Thycotic, a provider of privileged access management (PAM) solutions for more than 10,000 organisations worldwide, announced today that its Secret Server solution has been recognised as a winner of the Cyber Defense Magazine Infosec Awards in the Privileged Account Security category.

Thycotic Secret Server is designed to safeguard privileged accounts, both on-premise and in the cloud. It ensures privileged secrets are stored, managed and governed in a military-grade vault, where all access and activity is monitored to eliminate risks from unauthorised access. Secret Server allows enterprises and SMEs to manage, share and automatically exchange privileged enterprise secrets (credentials and passwords), which eliminates the need for users to maintain passwords in Word or Excel documents.

“It’s an honour to have won this award and very rewarding to have our hard work and success recognised by peers and leaders in the industry,” said Steve Kahan, Chief Marketing Officer at Thycotic. “Protecting privileged credentials and establishing access control is a growing priority for organisations as attackers target these accounts to get a foothold within their networks.”

Pierlugi Paganini, Editor-in-Chief, Cyber Defense Magazine said, “With cybercrime continuing to gain momentum, surpassing global drug crime last year and projected to reach over $1T in theft and damages in 2019, we are proud to recognise Thycotic as an award-winning innovator, offering a new approach to defeat these criminals. In a world of nearly exponential cybercrime, data theft and the loss of personally identifiable information as well as nation state cyber espionage, hacktivism and cyber terrorism, it’s time to focus on the most innovative solutions that might actually stop these criminals in their tracks.”
