Xceedium Xsuite Named Best Privileged Access Management Solution in GSN’s 5th Annual Homeland Security Awards

Xceedium®, Inc. announced today its Xsuite® platform won Best Privileged Access Management Solution in the 5th Annual Government Security News (GSN) Homeland Security Awards. The GSN Homeland Security Awards recognize the best of the homeland security community’s government officials, contractors, systems integrators, IT vendors, and physical security providers. This is the third straight year Xceedium has won top honors.

A panel of objective judges selected the Homeland Security Awards winners, according to Jacob Goodwin, Editor-in-Chief of GSN. The selection of Xceedium as a three-time winner in the Best Privileged Access Management Solutions category was driven by the company’s flagship product, Xsuite. The Privileged Access Management category is particularly important this year in the wake of the NSA/Edward Snowden breach. That breach is the latest and most public demonstration of the severe risk privileged users pose and the massive damage they can cause without the appropriate controls in place.

Xsuite is widely adopted across the intelligence, defense, and civilian agencies, and is specifically designed to mitigate insider threat risks. Xsuite enforces a comprehensive set of NIST 800-53(r4) security controls on privileged users, both employees and contractors. It controls, monitors, records and audits everything privileged users do, and is able to protect legacy, virtualized and cloud based systems. Xsuite supports Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative and Cloud First mandates while addressing HSPD-12 and OMB 11-11 mandates for logical access to systems via PIV and CAC smart cards.

“Traditional perimeter defenses are not designed to protect systems against privileged users and insider threats. Virtualization and cloud computing have further complicated the issue. Xsuite delivers next generation privileged identity management, enabling agencies to protect systems against this increasingly important risk and meet White House mandates for PIV and CAC logical access,” said Ken Ammon, Chief Strategy Officer at Xceedium. “Winning this award three years running demonstrates Xceedium’s ongoing commitment to solving important federal agency security and compliance problems.”

GSN announced winners in 40 different homeland security categories. For a complete listing of all winners, please visit: www.gsnmagazine.com.
