Today, we announced the acquisition of e-DMZ Security. A fitting way to kick off the RSA show in San Francisco. The acquisition of e-DMZ Security represents our belief in both the privileged identity market and how important it is becoming for companies to get control of their privileged users.
With the acquisition of e-DMZ Security we are expanding our capabilities in this important market and in the identity management market overall. I have firmly believed that identity management encompasses the management of privileged identities. This acquisition further strengthens Quest’s ability to provide a broad range of products for a customer’s needs in this area by being able to provide a defense-in-depth approach to securing access to computing resources whether they are Windows machines, network devices, application access or root access control to a Unix or Linux server. Quest now can offer both network and host-based controlled access to privileged accounts. Host-based control via our ability to manage sudo policies across Unix/Linux servers and traditional root access control and network-based controlled access via the e-DMZ product line.
This really gives us a “soup-to-nuts” set of capabilities in this up and coming market. Both e-DMZ and Quest will have booths at the RSA show that starts today so please drop by and see us. Happy Valentines Day!
