HERNDON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Xceedium, the premier provider of privileged identity management for the hybrid cloud, today announced that Network Products Guide has named the company’s new Xsuite® for VMware vSphere®, the Gold Winner in the category of Best Security Software. In addition, the product also was recognized as a Bronze Winner in the category of Best New Product. The Network Products Guide Hot Companies and Best Products Awards honor the best in organizational performance, innovations, products, and services from every facet of the IT industry. Winners were announced during the eighth annual dinner in Las Vegas on Tuesday, May 7, 2013.
“Being recognized at the top of the category among so many worthy solutions is a testament to the innovation and engineering team behind Xsuite,” said Glenn Hazard, Xceedium CEO. “As our customers continue to adopt hybrid-cloud architectures, we have significantly enhanced Xsuite to meet their next-generation security and compliance requirements. This selection by Network Products Guide further demonstrates our dedication to staying at the forefront of privileged identity management, and we have no intention of slowing down.”
Xsuite’s new VMware vSphere extension drove Network Product Guide’s selection of Xceedium as the Gold Winner in the Best Security Software category. Xceedium's Xsuite vaults privileged passwords and other credentials, and then controls access and monitors and records privileged user sessions. Xsuite for VMware vSphere extends Xsuite’s privileged identity management controls to both the VMware vCenter Server management console and guest systems running on VMware vSphere.
Xsuite is the first and only privileged identity management solution that protects the entire hybrid cloud, with comprehensive support for traditional data center systems and resources, the Amazon Web Services cloud platform, and virtual environments. It prevents damage and loss while generating alerts and forensic data through complete session monitoring and recording. Xsuite is engineered for highly elastic virtual environments. Tight integration with vSphere allows Xsuite to automatically discover and apply privileged user access controls over new virtual machines as they appear.
