Reading, UK – 28 February 2018: Osirium Technologies plc (AIM: OSI.L), a UK headquartered cyber-security SaaS provider, today announces support for the Microsoft Azure cloud platform. The Group’s Privileged Access Management (PAM) solution, the PxM Platform, can now be hosted in, and manage, Azure Virtual Machines. This enables organisations to maintain secure PAM solutions in both the cloud, via Azure, and within a hybrid environment.
Microsoft Azure is a cloud computing ecosystem created by Microsoft for building, testing, deploying, and managing applications and services through a global network of Microsoft-managed data centers.
Osirium is hosted in the Azure marketplace using a bring-your-own-licence (BYOL) model. The Osirium PxM Platform is available as an out of the box solution ready to manage a variety of Azure Virtual Machines due to Osirium’s unique ‘template’ approach. Such templates are available for existing virtual machines but can also be customised. New templates are easily created for in-house systems and applications. Osirium also supports MAP Server being run in Azure.
David Guyatt, Chief Executive Officer of Osirium, commented: “The security space, and the threats within it, evolve at an incredible pace. GDPR is just months away now and the new regulations outlined within it will be of concern for many organisations. The extent of reputational damage from a security breach is impossible to predict, or put a price against. We have worked hard to establish a leading-edge technology in the market, and expanding the Group’s capabilities to support Azure is an important step forward in our product roadmap. With 20% of the market, Azure is the second largest public cloud operator and extends Osirium’s market reach accordingly.”
According to RightScale’s Cloud Computing Trends: 2017 State of the Cloud Report, companies now run 79 percent of workloads in the cloud, with 41 percent of workloads in a public cloud and 38 percent in a private cloud. As more data and applications are moving to the cloud, unique infosecurity challenges are created. Security came joint first with expertise and spend as the top challenges respondents felt the Cloud bought. However, many traditional security tools that are architected for on-premises environments, and extended to the cloud, present critical blind spots that put an organisation at risk.
