Thycotic dates back all the way to 1996, when it was initially founded as a consulting company that helped to solve user access issues in Microsoft, Linux and Unix systems.
With the intent of making their lives easier and helping their consultants do their job, they developed a software that helps manage and control privileged accounts within organizations. As time went by, they realized the huge potential of their software and shifted from being a consultancy firm to a fully dedicated software development company. Nowadays, with over 7,500 customers worldwide and 180,000 IT administrators successfully protecting their privileged accounts, Thycotic is dedicated to innovating and building leading Privileged Account Management software.
We sat down with Cyber Strategist Joseph Carson to talk about privileged accounts, why they are such a risk to security and how can they be protected.
