Osirium are pleased to be working alongside Lockheed Martin as part of their Virtual Technology Cluster (VTC). Osirium were chosen as a partner after an in depth evaluation of their product's implementation of Privileged User Management and Task Automation solution. The combination of which gives high levels of protection to Privileged Accounts and allows Task Delegation without privilege elevation.
Lockheed Martin have known for some time that external attackers seek to gain access to Privileged Accounts and that inside attackers abuse the accounts they already have.
David Guyatt, founder and CEO of Osirium, a successful participant in the initial VTC pilot programme, said: “As one of the UK’s leading cyber-security SMEs, we have enjoyed ongoing support from Lockheed Martin UK through its VTC initiative. We have benefitted from exposure to more than 200 Lockheed Martin customers enabling us to demonstrate our unique approach to cyber-security and look forward to securing new customer contracts as a direct result.”
The VTC is a result of a joint venture between Lockheed Martin and Restoration Partners which allows UK-based companies, specialising in cyber-security expertise, to obtain support and investment for the development of new technologies and markets. Prime Minister David Cameron welcomed the news saying: “This government is committed to ensuring the UK continues to be a leader in the multi-billion dollar cyber-security industry but the private sector also has an important role to play in supporting UK cyber innovation. This partnership between Lockheed Martin and Restoration Partners will offer cyber entrepreneurs an incredible opportunity to engage with investors, academics and those already established in the industry.”
