Ironsphere Included in Analyst Firm’s Report: Beyond the Perimeter, Unified Solution Addresses Growing Internal and External Threats
Ironsphere, a secure access management software and services company serving large enterprises and telecom service providers, today announced it has been included in Forrester’s Now Tech: Privileged Identity Management, Q2 2020, an overview of 17 Privileged Identity Management Providers.
Jersey City, N.J. (PRWEB) MAY 28, 2020 – Authored by Sean Ryan, the report covers a diverse set of vendors that vary by size, functionality, geography, and vertical market focus.
Ryan states in one of the key takeaways from the report that, “Privileged credentials are the keys to the IT kingdom. When such high-value credentials are compromised, the results are catastrophic. Use privileged identity management (PIM) solutions to safeguard access and monitor the activity of those with root-level access to critical systems.”
“We’re honored to be included in this report,” said Michael Fritzlo, Executive Chairman, Ironsphere. “Our solutions are disruptive in that they were built for the cloud, can be turned up quickly, require little or no upfront capex, and address the growth and new challenges associated with everything-as-a-service, integrations and APIs, and the increase in third-party access to IT and OT infrastructure, applications and data. Given the dramatic rise in remote working, ensuring enterprise assets are connected – and the teams responsible for protecting those assets are supported with better software, automation and intelligence, Ironsphere’s architecture, approach and breakthrough economics matter more than ever.”
Ironsphere has licensed the report for distribution for a limited amount of time. The report can be downloaded here: https://ironsphere.com/privileged-identity-management/.

While we all instantly understand the motivation for cyber criminals to steal data from financial services companies, retailers, and other transaction-related businesses, it’s less obvious why healthcare is one of the top targeted industries when it comes to security breaches.
When the Covid-19 pandemic began, organizations across all industries were forced to go digital, which unfortunately led to a boom-time for potential cybercriminals. Reports of cybercrime shot up by almost 70 percent in the US compared to 2019, as the lockdown created an ideal environment for cybercriminals, with phishing and ransomware remaining the most common approach, accounting for 33 percent of cyberattacks.
