Integral Partners, CloudAccess Form Cloud Security Partnership

LOS ANGELES, CA–(August 19, 2013) – Cloud security leader CloudAccess has announced a new partnership with consulting and implementation practitioner Integral Partners (formerly iRise Security).

Integral Partners will represent CloudAccess’ unified security solutions (REACT) to their roster of clients and prospects to better help them achieve various IT security and regulatory compliance issues. They will implement, integrate and support CloudAccess solutions such as integrated identity and access management, SIEM and log archiving. All these solutions are developed, deployed and managed from the cloud.

“Integral Partners is an important part of our strategic success and we are very proud to count on them as not only as a partner, but a fellow evangelist of security-as-a-service,” said CloudAccess CEO Kevin Nikkhoo. “We look forward to a long and beneficial relationship as a business partner, a complimentary cloud-based solution integrator, and an educator on key IT security issues.”

As a vendor independent consultancy, Integral Partners is constantly evaluating emerging technologies, acquisitions, business alignment and IT prioritization trends to insure long term objectives are satisfied with near term deliverables as part of a successful governance and automation program.

“We recognize the importance cloud-based security plays in an enterprise’s overall strategy and CloudAccess’ layered and integrated offerings certainly delivers many operational and tactical advantages,” said Integral Partners’ president Scott Silver. “It certainly compliments what we look to achieve as a trusted advisor of security options especially in terms of access governance, identity as a service and SIEM.”

Silver also noted that many of his clients carry significant regulatory compliance and information privacy needs, but do not necessarily have the budget or resources to launch a full-scale on premise security initiative. “This is one of the key advantages I saw in CloudAccess; its ability to cost-effectively and seamlessly leverage the functions of identity provisioning with enterprise access control.”

CloudAccess specializes in a unique unified security platform that leverages the capabilities of intrusion detection, log archiving, user credentialing, provisioning, application authorization, automations, web access management, single sign-on and compliance reporting. In that this is 100% deployed and managed from the cloud creates better real time visibility, scalability, agility and affordability for any sized organization. REACT is the only cloud-managed offering on the market that incorporates all these key security capabilities (SIEM, Log Management, Identity Management and Access Management) from a multi-tenant configuration. CloudAccess, and partners like CloudIdentity, also provide each solution as a stand-alone cloud-based offering as well.
