2013: A Security Odyssey

31 12 2013

What did 2013 hold for Thycotic Software? New partners, software releases, and other exciting milestones. Join us for our movie themed year-in-review.

This year, in the wake of dozens of newsworthy data breaches, the landscape for IT security broadened with every headline. The importance of securing privileged credentials and managing identity went from a “nice to have” to a “need to have” seemingly overnight. It became more apparent from IT teams across the globe that a spreadsheet was no longer a trusted, secure repository to manage privileged passwords in an organization.

So what did this mean for Thycotic? Keeping a close eye on security trends, we listened to our customers and built the features they requested to solve their most essential use-cases in privileged account management. But that wasn’t all we did.

Here are just a few highlights of what made 2013 a defining year for Thycotic Software.

Let it snow, let it snow? More like, let it grow, let it grow!

Inc. Magazine named us one of the Top 5000 Fastest Growing Companies in the US, and #33 in the top 100 fastest growing companies in DC. We couldn’t be more honored to receive this privilege. Our growth is attributed directly to our fantastic customers and our intelligent, hard-working team.

Lions, Tigers, and Splunk – Oh, My!

This year we announced several great partnerships, ending the year with an official announcement of our partnership with Splunk to release the Secret Server App for Splunk Enterprise. We’re proud of all of our new partnerships, and especially of our rapidly growing technology integration partner program. You can read more about the Splunk integration with Secret Server in our press release.

Come fly with me, let’s fly, let’s fly away.

We broke a personal record at Thycotic by sponsoring over 35 tradeshows across the world in 2013. We’ve presented dozens of keynotes, spotlight sessions, thought leadership interviews and spoke directly with thousands IT security and operations professionals in every major vertical about their security needs. Thanks to our dedicated team who worked round-the-clock to make those events a major success.

Release the kracken!

This year we’ve had several exciting releases to our products Secret Server, Password Reset Server and Group Management Server based on direct requests from our customers.

For Secret Server, some notable new features are: SAP support for natively changing passwords on SAP accounts; expanded API to increase automation in scripting; Custom Columns for a more tailored dashboard view; Website Password Changing to automatically change passwords for Windows LIVE, Google and Amazon accounts; SAML Support for increased security and single-sign on convenience; and Improved Discovery for Scheduled Tasks and Application Pools, now discoverable by Secret Server.

Other new product features are Active Directory Attribute Integration to let employees easily update their own AD information with Password Reset Server, and Group Renewal for Group Management Server to remind Active Directory group managers to double check their group membership from time to time.

So what’s next for 2014?

We think that 2014 will trump this year in success stories, growth, partnerships and products. We hope you join us every step of the way.
