Quest Software Acquires e-DMZ Security to Strengthen Privileged Identity Management Solutions

Expands Quest One Identity Solution with Privileged Account Management


 

ALISO VIEJO, Calif., Feb. 14, 2011Quest Software, Inc.  (Nasdaq: QSFT) today announced that it has acquired the assets of e-DMZ Security, LLC, a privately held company specializing in privileged access control and privileged identity management products. Further expanding the Quest® One Identity Solution product portfolio, e-DMZ helps solve compliance and security issues associated with the complex and growing requirements of privileged identity management and access control.

Quest One simplifies identity and access management (IAM) to increase security, efficiency, and compliance by consolidating critical non-Windows systems into Active Directory; unifying important aspects of IAM; automating identity administration; and securing important systems. It does all this while enabling compliance through access control and segregation of duties, with complete visibility and control driven by identity intelligence and business objectives.

The award-winning Total Privilege Access Management (TPAM) Suite from e-DMZ adds four key solutions to Quest One for privileged password management, application password management, privileged session management, and privileged command management.

This expands Quest One beyond Unix privilege management to include more comprehensive capabilities for securing, managing and tracking all privileged and administrative activities across an organization’s entire infrastructure. This includes Windows desktops and laptops, servers, databases, hypervisors, network devices, and any other system within the organization. The combination makes Quest the first to combine the four pillars of the converging privileged identity management market with Active Directory Bridge, password vault, Unix privilege management, and Windows session management.

“Many organizations today not only have to be concerned with outsider security threats, but also with risks related to internal threats, particularly those employees who have access to the most sensitive data and a broad range of resources,” said Doug Garn, president and CEO, Quest Software. “With the addition of e-DMZ, Quest One will now be able to help organizations ensure security and compliance around privileged accounts across their entire enterprise, strengthening their overall governance, and meeting security initiatives and requirements.”
