Doha, 13th January 2022: iHorizons, a leading Qatar technology solutions and business transformation firm, has joined hands with ThycoticCentrify, a global market leader in cloud identity security solutions, (formed by the merger of the privileged access management (PAM) leaders Thycotic and Centrify), to address the growing demand for cyber security and agile identity management systems for organizations looking to bolster data security and access management controls.
Globally, the pandemic has paved the way for accelerated digital roadmaps across industries, forcing businesses and individuals to respond quickly to changes in digital expectations and security governance. A surge in digital readiness and online identities also leads to a surge in online threats, and that’s where a modern identity platform comes into play, offering the right balance of convenience, security and user experience to protect customers and their data.
ThycoticCentrify’s PAM solutions also help organizations meet the Qatar 2022 Cybersecurity Framework requirements, which have been adopted by FIFA World Cup 2022. With effective deployment ThycoticCentrify’s solutions not only help meet the compliance and risk management pre-requisites and safeguard critical national infrastructure that will support the FIFA World Cup before and after the event, but also improve an organization’s security posture and minimise cyber risk.
‘After carefully observing the evolution of the digital landscape in our region and hearing from our customers, it was clear that having access to world-class privileged access management solutions is a fundamental cornerstone to delivering secure and robust digital experiences,’ commented Muhammed Takriti, CEO iHorizons, while speaking on the partnership. ‘Our partnership with ThycoticCentrify, a distinguished market leader in this area, will drive mutually beneficial outcomes for our firms and unlock new avenues for our customers in their digital journey.’
For the second year in a row, Gartner named Thycotic and Centrify ‘Leaders’ in the Magic Quadrant for Privileged Access Management, 2021.
Mark De Simone, Regional Director of ThycoticCentrify commented, ‘ThycoticCentrify is thrilled to align with iHorizons as a trusted digital transformation solution provider in Qatar and the Arab world. The cybersecurity opportunities and challenges that enterprises, agencies, and global events like FIFA 2022 face require innovative and world class solutions to deliver not only a Privilege Access Management platform founded on Zero Trust, but also strong integration between Unix identities and Active Directory, whether on premises or in the cloud. We look forward to helping all organizations in Qatar meet modern PAM requirements together with iHorizons.’
