EDGE 2020 Goes Virtual
Adelaide, Australia, July 9, 2020 — Thycotic, provider of privileged access management (PAM) solutions to more than 10,000 organisations, including 25 of the Fortune 100, today announced the general availability of System for Cross-domain Identity Management (SCIM) Connector 2.0, which allows expanded integrations between identity providers and Secret Server.
Many organisations have both privileged account management (PAM) and identity governance and administration (IGA) solutions that operate independently. As a result, organisations don’t have a unified view of identities, which leads to IT visibility and management challenges, increased security risk, and cumbersome reporting for compliance. Thycotic’s SCIM Connector 2.0 allows the automation and interoperability of user access. IT teams get full visibility into user access and role assignments as well as ongoing user and role changes. This improves security across the organisation, streamlines delivery of privileged access to improve both end user and IT productivity, and optimises PAM across the enterprise.
“Leveraging the SCIM 2.0 Connector helps bridge disparate PAM and IGA implementations, giving security teams greater visibility and control of privileged accounts across the enterprise,” said Jai Dargan, vice president of Product Management at Thycotic. “Extensibility and interoperability are key pillars for Thycotic solutions, allowing organisations to integrate other pieces of their security stack, maximising the value of their existing cyber defence investments.”
Thycotic's SCIM Connector 2.0 allows organisations to set up workflows to synchronise, provision or modify entitlements in Secret Server directly within their IGA platform. The SCIM Connector is installed as a Web Application and allows users to input credentials and a URL path to connect directly to Secret Server. It also allows users to connect Secret Server to one or multiple standard SCIM endpoints.
Dargan adds: “The SCIM specification, which the Thycotic connector utilises, makes managing user identities in cloud-based applications and services easier. It reduces the cost and complexity of user management operations by providing a common user schema and extension model, as well as binding documents to provide patterns for exchanging this schema using standard protocols.”
The availability of SCIM Connector 2.0 expands the identity providers with which Secret Server can integrate, including Microsoft Identity Manager, Oracle Identity Manager, Oracle Identity Cloud Service, and Salesforce.com.
