Fujitsu and SSH.COM Remove Password Challenge with Privileged Access-as-a-Service
- Fujitsu integrates SSH.COM PrivX® Cloud Access Gateway with Identity-as-a-Service (IDaaS) offering
- Solves a major challenge for CIOs, replacing passwords with cost-effective, secure management of multiple access credentials – with nothing to lose or change
- Creates flexible, keyless, cloud-based, next-generation privileged access management as a consumption-based service
Solution enables secure, role-based, on-demand access to critical resources
The collaboration between Fujitsu and SSH.COM enables a new, more secure approach to the management of privileged access to business systems for insourced and outsourced software developers, including DevOps teams. Privileged users gain secure, role-based, on-demand access to critical development and production resources, helping improve security and reduce administration.
Fujitsu’s IDaaS is a comprehensive access management solution for hybrid IT environments, ensuring scalability, fast deployment and a short time to market. It provides convenient access to resources in hybrid IT environments, keeping identities and credentials safe. IDaaS is designed with comprehensive self-service and multiple authentication protocols, including biometric authentication. User ID processing and permissions management is integrated into directories, systems, cloud services and applications using open, standard interfaces.
Petri Heinälä, Security Offerings Architect at Fujitsu in EMEIA, says: “Lost keys and SysAdmin credentials are the jackpot for hackers. Best practice is to permanently remove unmanaged keys and get rid of passwords – because what does not exist cannot be lost or stolen. PrivX’s keyless, on-demand approach is a perfect fit for Fujitsu’s IDaaS offering. It brings clientless operation, streamlined workflows and multi-cloud asset auto-discovery to Fujitsu IDaaS and allows CIOs to simultaneously simplify and strengthen key management.”
Kaisa Olkkonen, CEO of SSH.COM, comments: “We see this partnership as a true win-win, especially for our customers. Adding PrivX’s powerful capabilities to Fujitsu’s leading IDaaS solution provides a unified suite of tools to automate the provisioning and management of access to systems, applications, data and resources. Together with Fujitsu, we can offer a more comprehensive solution and help customers to become secure, faster.”
