TAMPA, FL – Focal Point Data Risk, LLC (“Focal Point”), a leading cybersecurity services firm, today announced a partnership with Britive, a multi-cloud privileged access management platform. Together, Focal Point and Britive will bring to market new solutions for cloud-first organizations looking to better secure identities and permissions across IaaS, PaaS, SaaS, and DaaS environments.
The partnership, which aims to pair Britive’s ground-breaking technology with Focal Point’s Identity and Access Management and cloud security expertise, offers a new path forward for companies struggling to secure increasingly complex cloud infrastructures, and manage ever-growing stacks of security tools. Managing the human and machine identities and permissions in these environments is incredibly challenging, leaving organizations vulnerable to breaches caused by misconfigured privileges, over-privileged accounts, and privileged credential abuse.
“Our goal has always been to help our clients grow quickly and securely, without exposure to undue risk. By partnering with Britive, we give our clients yet another way to grow aggressively, take advantage of cloud scalability, and innovate quickly, while maintaining a strong and controlled security posture, even in the cloud,” said Stephanie Hagopian, Senior Vice President of Sales at Focal Point. “We couldn’t be more excited to add Britive to our roster of key technology partnerships, and we look forward to leveraging their toolset to lead our clients in the development of world-class identity and cloud security programs.”
Britive’s Platform takes the complexity and time out of securing identities and permissions across multi-cloud environments, including AWS, Azure, GCP, Snowflake, Salesforce, ServiceNow, and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. The platform provides companies with the ability to automatically grant Just-In-Time permissions and secrets, auto-expire permissions and secrets, enforce least-privilege access, right-size broad permissions, and more.
These solution features, as well as the strategy and consulting services offered by Focal Point, can serve as a foundation for companies looking to extend security into CI/CD processes while pursuing a broader DevSecOps strategy. By allowing for fast, frictionless, and ephemeral privileged access, DevOps, SecOps, and CloudOps teams can preserve rapid deployment cycles without unnecessary slowdowns.
“The cloud-native stack within organizations continues to grow, creating an even greater visibility and control gap over human and machine identities and permissions across cloud platforms and applications,” said Art Poghosyan, CEO of Britive. “As a result, enterprises are experiencing an increased risk of cloud breaches and privilege and permission-based misconfigurations. This is precisely why our partnership with Focal Point is so important. We are doubling down on our commitment to helping our joint customers achieve Zero Standing Permissions and true least privilege access to keep their cloud-native environments secure.”
Managing privileged human and machine identities is a critical piece of an effective cloud security strategy. To support these efforts, Focal Point offers a range of cloud security health assessments, strategy services, and managed support capabilities that allow companies to accelerate securely. With technologies like Britive, Focal Point delivers complete solutions to organizations looking to manage identity and security risks in their multi-cloud environments.
