Xceedium Unveils Xsuite Cloud on Amazon Web Services

AWS security solution provider delivers a comprehensive privileged identity and access management solution for AWS and hybrid cloud enterprises

HERNDON, Va., June 5 — Xceedium, Inc., the premier worldwide provider of Zero Trust privileged identity and access management solutions, today announced Xsuite Cloud. Xsuite Cloud is a comprehensive privileged identity and access management platform designed to provide additional protection for organizations that are taking advantage of the cost, power and scalability of Amazon Web Services (AWS) in conjunction with existing datacenter infrastructure. Xceedium is also working with AWS to make Xsuite Cloud and Zero Trust security available to AWS customers.

Whether using a cloud only strategy or leveraging a hybrid solution, customers can utilize the enterprise-class Xsuite Cloud platform and its unified policy management capability to seamlessly manage and enforce Privileged User Access policies and vault critical credentials. Furthermore, customers can enforce "Separation of Duties" for administrative access to AWS and AWS GovCloud.

"We continue to broaden our security capability through product enhancements as well as integration with security technology partners to meet growing customer demand," said Teresa Carlson, vice president, global public sector at Amazon Web Services. "The scalability and security certifications of Xceedium's Xsuite Cloud complement our ongoing initiatives for both AWS and AWS GovCloud."

Xsuite Cloud provides customers with a unified way to control, audit and continuously monitor all privileged access to the AWS Management Console and critical infrastructure deployed across the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) and Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), as well as other private clouds, on premise systems, or any combination thereof.

"Cloud computing is fundamentally changing how organizations deploy systems. But security risks and regulatory compliance issues remain top concerns for organizations seeking to adopt the cloud for mission critical systems," noted Glenn Hazard, Xceedium CEO. "Xsuite Cloud further enables organizations to choose cloud-only or hybrid architectures and provides privileged user access and identities from a single platform."

Xsuite Cloud: Privileged Identity and Access Management Platform for Enterprises Running Applications in the Cloud

Xsuite Cloud enables organizations to apply essential Zero Trust controls through a unified policy management system that simplifies configuration and ongoing maintenance. It provides the following major capabilities to control and audit privileged access to both the AWS Cloud and enterprise infrastructure:

  • Roles- and Policy Based Privileged Access Control: Centrally managed roles and policy-based privileged user access control to enterprise systems, the AWS Management Console, and all EC2 Instances. This includes management of shared accounts with full identity attribution and integrated support for Active Directory and LDAP
  • Privileged User Single Sign-On: Privileged user single sign-on to enterprise systems, the AWS Management Console, and all EC2 Instances
  • Full Audit Trail and Session Recording: Complete audit logs and session recording for all privileged user access to enterprise systems, the AWS Management Console, and all EC2 Instances
  • Password and Access Key Management: Vaulting and full lifecycle management of all privileged user credentials and access keys on enterprise systems, the AWS Management Console, and all EC2 Instances
  • Tight Integration with AWS Cloud Infrastructure: Xsuite Cloud is deeply integrated with the APIs and support infrastructure of AWS, providing: auto-discovery and auto-provisioning of EC2 Instances, administrative separation of duties through enforcement of IAM Roles, full protection of AWS Management Console and IAM accounts, AWS Access Key storage and management for SSO, S3 storage option for audit logs and recordings, support for Virtual Private Cloud configurations (VPC), and access to enterprise systems through AWS Direct Connect.
  • Public Sector Ready: Xsuite Cloud is fully FIPS compliant and includes the following public sector required features: PIV/CAC card authentication to enterprise systems, the AWS Management Console, and all EC2 Instances, support for AWS GovCloud, and off-premise private key storage including an HSM option

Pricing and Availability
