Leading communications services company adds Cyber-Ark’s Privileged Identity Management Suite to existing managed security services

Cyber-Ark Software announced that BT has deployed the Cyber-Ark Privileged Identity Management (PIM) Suite to monitor and secure its privileged accounts. BT also plans to integrate Cyber-Ark’s PIM Suite into its existing portfolio of managed security services to sell on to its growing customer base.

As a large communications services company, providing a range of products to a vast number of business and consumer customers, BT’s infrastructure is complex and broad – covering numerous business units and many geographical regions. BT required a single solution, standardised across the global organisation that could be scaled up easily, as required. This solution needed to complement BT’s existing security services, providing its rapidly expanding customer base with proven privileged access management. BT reviewed the market and selected Cyber-Ark’s PIM Suite.

“Cyber-Ark’s PIM Suite really is a great, all-round solution – not only does it manage, secure and monitor our privileged accounts, it also allows us to maintain compliance with a number of regulations, such as SOX, which is hugely beneficial to us,” said Karon Davies, global security privilege access manager at BT. “Cyber-Ark’s solution has also been intelligently engineered, allowing us to easily sell it on as a hosted service to businesses – thus ensuring that our customers also enjoy benefits from the PIM Suite.”

Cyber-Ark’s PIM Suite enables organisations to enforce an enterprise policy that protects a business’ most critical systems, managing the entire lifecycle of shared and privileged accounts across data centres. Sold also as a hosted service, Cyber-Ark’s award-winning solution will help businesses meet increasingly strict compliance regulations and audits.

“We are delighted that an organisation of the size and calibre of BT has selected Cyber-Ark to secure not only its own privileged accounts, but also those of its customers,” said Nick Baglin, vice president of sales, EMEA at Cyber-Ark. “We are confident in our ability to match the rapidly expanding demands of this relationship and look forward to our alliance with BT going from strength to strength.”
