New Customer Wins and Partnerships, Including Herjavec Group, Underscore Growing Urgency From Global Organizations to Combat Third-Party Cyber Threats
FALL RIVER, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--#cybersecurity--SecZetta, the leading provider of third-party identity risk solutions, today announced record sales in Q3 2020 driven by significant customer wins, successful system integrator and reseller partnerships, and new product features. Continued urgency on the part of global organizations to combat third-party cyber threats and support compliance needs drove increased demand for SecZetta’s solutions, including automating security controls, credentialing, and identity proofing for third-party users.
“At SecZetta, we are fully invested in our customers’ success and are always looking at innovative ways to better understand, manage, and reduce the risks associated with third-party user populations including contractors, affiliates, and non-human works, etc.,” said David Pignolet, CEO and founder, SecZetta. “The increase in third-party workers and remote environments reinforces the value of purpose-built third-party identity risk solutions that are easy to use and help organizations quickly automate third-party onboarding and implement risk-based identity access and lifecycle strategies, including ensuring compliance requirements.”
As organizations continue to focus on remote workforce access in alignment with pandemic guidance, it has become even more critical to ensure all workforce compliance requirements are met prior to onboarding both employees and non-employees, that these requirements are continuously revalidated throughout a worker’s engagement, and that events are appropriately reported and necessary security actions are taken. SecZetta enables organizations to more easily support these requirements by automating third-party identity lifecycle processes that help support compliance requirements and securely drive sustained customer growth.
Q3 Customer Highlights
“Hoag Hospital was going through acquisition of HMG and scaling to greater heights than ever before, but offboarding and onboarding was a challenge in our environment. Imagine manually going through each new employee, evaluating what permissions each will need to perform their functions, and then making individuals adjustments to their access as their role evolves, Emmanuel Ugwuanyi Lead IGAM, Hoag Hospital. “Seczetta and SailPoint Identity helps to coordinate all our user types (employees and contractors), giving them digital roles that can carry pre-selected permissions and credentials. They can also be switched with new roles as the user moves through our enterprise, and they can be easily terminated when they leave. With SailPoint and SecZetta our digital transformation journey was set on the right path to help our enterprise maintain security as well as ensure that business processes are smoothly managed and conducted.”
