Xceedium announced Xsuite Cloud, a privileged identity and access management platform designed to provide additional protection for organizations that are taking advantage of the cost, power and scalability of Amazon Web Services (AWS) in conjunction with existing datacenter infrastructure.
Xsuite Cloud provides customers with a unified way to control, audit and continuously monitor all privileged access to the AWS Management Console and critical infrastructure deployed across the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) and Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), as well as other private clouds, on premise systems, or any combination thereof.
“Cloud computing is fundamentally changing how organizations deploy systems. But security risks and regulatory compliance issues remain top concerns for organizations seeking to adopt the cloud for mission critical systems,” noted Glenn Hazard, Xceedium CEO. “Xsuite Cloud further enables organizations to choose cloud-only or hybrid architectures and provides privileged user access and identities from a single platform.”
Xsuite Cloud enables provides the following major capabilities to control and audit privileged access to both the AWS Cloud and enterprise infrastructure:
Roles- and Policy Based Privileged Access Control: Centrally managed roles and policy-based privileged user access control to enterprise systems, the AWS Management Console, and all EC2 Instances. This includes management of shared accounts with full identity attribution and integrated support for Active Directory and LDAP.
Privileged User Single Sign-On: Privileged user single sign-on to enterprise systems, the AWS Management Console, and all EC2 Instances.
Full Audit Trail and Session Recording: Complete audit logs and session recording for all privileged user access to enterprise systems, the AWS Management Console, and all EC2 Instances.
Password and Access Key Management: Vaulting and full lifecycle management of all privileged user credentials and access keys on enterprise systems, the AWS Management Console, and all EC2 Instances.
Tight Integration with AWS Cloud Infrastructure: Xsuite Cloud is deeply integrated with the APIs and support infrastructure of AWS, providing: auto-discovery and auto-provisioning of EC2 Instances, administrative separation of duties through enforcement of IAM Roles, full protection of AWS Management Console and IAM accounts, AWS Access Key storage and management for SSO, S3 storage option for audit logs and recordings, support for Virtual Private Cloud configurations (VPC), and access to enterprise systems through AWS Direct Connect.
