Planet Technologies and Microsoft have been successful partners since 1997. This strategic partnership has thrived over the years and has allowed for sustained and integrated growth for the company and our clients.

Strategic Partnerships

As information technology infrastructure becomes more connected and workforce more mobile, the issues around Compliance, Governance, and Risk Management remain top of mind for most organizations. Creating and maintaining Cyber security capabilities based on defense in depth strategy has long been considered one of the best approaches, with identity management being at the very core of the security stack. Privileged Identity Management is even more important, with data unequivocally pointing to at least 80% of security breaches involving privileged credentials and 60% resulting from privileged account abuse. Through our partnership, we bring Thycotic’s award winning solutions along with premier consulting services from Planet to help our customers with securing privileged credentials, protecting endpoints and controlling application access. Thycotic has grown to serve more than 7,500 customers.

Organizations are under pressure to digitally transform, but are constrained by existing applications and infrastructure while rationalizing an increasingly diverse portfolio of clouds, datacenters and application architectures. Container technology enables true independence between applications and infrastructure and creates a model for better collaboration and innovation. Docker is the company driving the container movement and the only container platform provider to address every application across the hybrid cloud. Through our partnership we are able to bring all the benefits of Docker Enterprise Platform to Planet’s customers, enhancing agility, control, and portability of the software supply chain through an integrated Container as a Service (CaaS) approach. Docker enables true independence between applications and infrastructure and developers and IT ops to unlock their potential and creates a model for better collaboration and innovation.
