NetIQ, a leading provider of enterprise software for performance, security and IT process automation and management, and Northdoor, an integrated IT solutions provider specialized in the financial services industry, have formed a new partnership to deliver complete security solutions.
These manage user access rights and comprehensive security incident and event management (SIEM), and utilise IT Process Automation (ITPA) to ensure sustainable compliance and increased operational efficiencies.
Northdoor has an unrivalled heritage of working with major insurance and banking organisations on innovative system solutions. The company has developed considerable expertise in helping clients identify and implement technology solutions that meet tough compliance mandates on critical information management and data protection.
The partnership with NetIQ gives Northdoor access to NetIQ's suite of security solutions. This includes NetIQ's Aegis, which automates security administration and simplifies the management of active directory and single sign-on across multiple platforms, as well as security policy enforcement in line with regulatory requirements including Sarbanes Oxley, Basel II, HIPAA and PCI. The solution suite enables close monitoring of privileged user access and the provisioning and de-provisioning of users to protect a client's computing environment.
Ian McKay, Director, EMEA Channel & Strategic Alliances, NetIQ said: "Secure IT is critical to every organisation. Our technology automates critical processes and ensures incidents are prevented and resolved effectively. With an outstanding track record of working with clients who must meet the highest security standards, Northdoor understands these issues intuitively and will enable us to provide customers with powerful solutions tailored to their needs."
AJ Thompson, Sales Director at Northdoor, said: "Our clients are confronted with a daunting set of security and compliancy challenges that are constantly evolving and often difficult to manage and police efficiently. NetIQ technology gives our consultants a platform on which to build an infrastructure for sustainable compliancy and security management that safeguards a financial enterprise and its clients."
Northdoor is one of the first UK partners to join the new NetIQ EMEA partnership programme. This aims to expand NetIQ's use of the channel to grow the market for NetIQ's ITPA software platform NetIQ Aegis in combination with its Security and Administration suites.
