SecureLink and Thycotic Partnership Delivers Enhanced Credential Management Capabilities

SecureLink has announced a new systems integration partnership with the privileged access management (PAM) solution provider, Thycotic.

Austin, TX-based SecureLink identified a need for a robust enterprise solution for remote support; one that was capable of supporting multiple technology vendors, security protocols, and ensuring compliance with federal and industry regulations. Tech companies need to be able to provide remote support to their customers quickly and easily, but the available remote access solutions such as desktop sharing tools and VPNs failed to provide those capabilities.

In 2003, SecureLink launched its solution for vendor privileged access management (VPAM) and remote support. Today the platform is used by more than 30,000 organizations worldwide. The platform has been updated many times over the years, with new features regularly added to improve functionality and usability. SecureLink has now announced that Thycotic’s award-winning Secret Server has been integrated with the SecureLink’s VPAM solution, offering unified security for all privileged activities.

Thycotic is a leading provider of cloud-ready privilege management solutions. Those solutions have now been adopted by more than 10,000 organizations worldwide to reduce privileged account risk, control applications, implement least privilege policies, and demonstrate compliance.

The partnership will allow SecureLink and Thycotic joint customers to manage credentials for both solutions via a single location within Thycotic’s Secret Server. SecureLink customers will now be able to easily take advantage of the advanced credential management and endpoint security features of the Thycotic solution, while Thycotic users will benefit from a seamless deployment of the SecureLink remote access platform, its bespoke vendor user management capabilities, and best-in-class security features for remote access.

“This integration enables our customers to focus on business-critical tasks by eliminating inefficiencies associated with managing third-party vendor and employee privileged access separately,” said Joe Devine, CEO of SecureLink.

“SecureLink’s outstanding platform for managing third-party vendors is very well known within the industry and our combined offering greatly simplifies password management for customers,” said Jai Dargan, Vice President, Product Management of Thycotic. “Our Secret Server solution authorizes access for privileged users through encrypted connections and eliminates the possibility of credential exposure.”
