Clearmanage Selects CryptoAuditor for Privileged Access Management in First APAC Cloud Deployment

Singapore-based Cloud Provider to Monitor Encrypted Channels with SSH Communications Security

As more organizations migrate to the cloud, security issues must be addressed swiftly. SSH Communications Security today announced that Clearmanage, a regional cloud computing and cloud security service provider for government and enterprise clients, headquartered in Singapore, has chosen to deploy CryptoAuditorâ„¢ in a new and forward-looking cloud service offering. Clearmanage is the first organization in the Asia Pacific region to implement CryptoAuditor privileged user monitoring for a cloud environment.

Clearmanage has deployed CryptoAuditor within its own network and will also resell it as part of its security service offering.

Meeting key criteria: To satisfy Clearmanage requirements, the privileged access management (PAM) solution needed to be agentless and non-intrusive to its cloud service clients. It also had to be adaptable as a cloud-based security service, so that even clients not in the Clearmanage hosting facility would be able to leverage the solution to manage their privileged users. CryptoAuditor meets these criteria.
Committed customer support: SSH Communication Security's strong customer support and local distributorship were major selling points.
PAM in the cloud: CryptoAuditor enables major enterprises, financial institutions, government agencies and cloud providers to take control of privileged access to their assets in the cloud, delivering distributed virtual appliance architecture and transparent monitoring capabilities.
Well-rounded solution: The solution helps prevent data exfiltration and performs encrypted data monitoring for a robust security stance.
Matthew McKenna, chief commercial officer, SSH Communications Security, said:

"Whether in the public or private sector, organizations around the world struggle to maintain compliance with regulatory requirements. Consequently, providers are now realizing the opportunity to provide a more well-rounded security offering. Clearmanage has experience in providing advanced security solutions and services across both sectors and is ideally suited to deliver security in the cloud."

Alex Ng, General Manager, Clearmanage, said:

"CryptoAuditor helps us meet certification and compliance requirements while strengthening our cloud infrastructure. SSH Communications Security was willing to look into critical feature requests and to collaborate with us to bring the service to market. We now have a new PAM service to offer our secure cloud hosting clients as part of our government and enterprise cloud service."
