HERNDON, VA – June 5, 2012 – Xceedium, Inc., the premier worldwide provider of Zero Trust privileged identity and access management solutions, today announced Xsuite Cloud. Xsuite Cloud is a comprehensive 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. Xceedium is also working with AWS to make Xsuite Cloud and Zero Trust security available to AWS customers.

Whether using a cloud only strategy or leveraging a hybrid solution, customers can utilize the enterprise-class Xsuite Cloud platform and its unified policy management capability to seamlessly manage and enforce Privileged User Access policies and vault critical credentials. Furthermore, customers can enforce “Separation of Duties” for administrative access to AWS and AWS GovCloud.

“We continue to broaden our security capability through product enhancements as well as integration with security technology partners to meet growing customer demand,” said Teresa Carlson, vice president, global public sector at Amazon Web Services. “The scalability and security certifications of Xceedium’s Xsuite Cloud complement our ongoing initiatives for both AWS and AWS GovCloud.”

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.”
