ServiceNow Selects Xceedium to Protect its FedGov Cloud Offering
Leading IT Service Management Company Leverages Xsuite to Deliver Mandated
Privileged User Security Controls
HERNDON, Va. -- June 24, 2014
Xceedium®, Inc. today announced ServiceNow (NYSE: NOW), the enterprise IT
service management company, has implemented Xsuite as a core component of its
ServiceNow software-as-a-service offering to the U.S. Federal Government.
ServiceNow relies on Xsuite to establish and enforce the many privileged user
security controls established by FedRAMP within its cloud service offerings.
"ServiceNow is highly committed to ensuring our Federal Government customers
are able to deploy their operations to a secure and compliant platform, and we
selected Xsuite to meet the mandatory FedRAMP privileged user controls and
audit requirements as articulated in the NIST 800-53 Security Controls,” said
Ken Cormier, FSO for Governance, Risk & Compliance at ServiceNow. “Xsuite's
capabilities, covering password and credential protection, access control,
user monitoring, and session recording, were instrumental in helping us ensure
we are able to satisfy the many privileged user controls within FedRAMP, while
also lowering our costs and reducing complexity."
“Xsuite satisfies the baseline level of FedRAMP security controls service
providers and government agencies must satisfy to operate in the cloud, but
that’s just the beginning," added Ken Ammon, Chief Strategy Officer for
Xceedium. "Xsuite aids civilian, military, and intelligence security teams
with critical privileged user controls necessary to achieve compliance with a
full range of compliance standards, like the NIST 800-37 Risk Management
Framework, HSPD-12 logical PIV/CAC requirements, and many others. "
Unlike other products, Xsuite is specifically designed and purpose-built to
satisfy the demanding privileged identity management requirements of the
hybrid cloud. The hybrid cloud – comprising an organization’s entire computing
fabric from traditional on-premise network equipment and servers, to virtual
and public cloud based infrastructure – brings with it demanding new
challenges for privileged identity management. Traditional, first generation
solutions are ill-equipped to address these needs:
*Comprehensive Functionality – Xsuite delivers comprehensive functionality,
spanning password and credential management, strong authentication
integrated with multi-factor security technologies, access control, user
monitoring and recording, and proactive policy enforcement.
*Complete Coverage – Xsuite enables a single set of policies across the
entire hybrid cloud and traditional data center, ensuring consistent
standards, easier compliance reporting, and reduced administrative
*Architected for Scale and Dynamism – Tight integration with Amazon Web
Services and VMware vSphere enables Xsuite to automatically identify
resources as they're created, and automatically apply and enforce security
policies. Xsuite's automated protections reduce "mean time to protection"
to fractions of a second. Xsuite also delivers the built-in reliability
and availability services, like clustering, which enterprise deployments
*Protection of the Extended Management Plane – Xsuite has worked
extensively with both AWS and VMware to deliver tight, API-level
integration and protections.
