M-Tech Partners with RippleTech to Combine Identity and Security Access Management
Integrated solution combines efficient and secure user and privilege management with real-time monitoring of access events.
July 10, 2007 -- Calgary, Canada -- M-Tech Information Technology, Inc., a leader in identity management software, today announced a partnership with RippleTech, a leading provider of event management and data access intelligence software.
Both M-Tech and RippleTech's products assist organizations in hardening network security and complying with regulations that call for stronger internal controls, such as SOX, PCI, GLBA and others. M-Tech's solutions manage static user privileges eliminating orphan and dormant accounts, finding and addressing inappropriate user rights and ensuring that users have strong passwords. RippleTech's solutions monitor the network and access events, in real-time, detecting and responding to security events as they happen.
The combined solution provides customers:
- Capacity planning based on a trend analysis of measured workload on M-Tech servers.
- Real-time monitoring of security and access events such as authentication failures on the M-Tech servers, password reset failures and rejected security change requests.
- Matching of user privileges with user access attempts, allowing the tuning of access privileges based on usage.
- Identification of users who persistently trigger access violations for possible privilege escalation.
"M-Tech is pleased to partner with RippleTech - a market leader in consolidated management of real-time security and access events," said Gideon Shoham, M-Tech CEO.
"We believe the combination of RippleTech and M-Tech will bring an enhanced end to end solution for identity and access management, optimizing the overall value that our clients realize from an integrated solution," said Brian McDonnell, RippleTech CEO.
