Planet Technologies Announces Strategic Partnership with Thycotic and Their Award-Winning Security Solutions

GERMANTOWN, MD, APRIL 18, 2018 – Planet Technologies, the leading Microsoft services provider for cloud solutions, announces it has formed a strategic partnership with Thycotic, the fastest growing cybersecurity IT company offering solutions for Privileged Access Management (PAM).

Organizations increasingly face evolving and dangerous cybersecurity risks to their enterprise making Privileged Access Management more important than ever. Privileged accounts are frequently a hacker’s top target within an organization, giving them access to traverse an entire network undetected. Privileged accounts can also be abused by malicious insiders, providing an opportunity to access sensitive data and systems. Thus, PAM is one of the most important security controls organizations can implement to stop these threats in their tracks.

“With Privileged Access Management being a significant security priority for all organizations, our partnership with Thycotic is very important to our mission of delivering innovative services with a security-centric mindset,” said Scott Tucker, President and CEO of Planet Technologies. “Thycotic’s Secure Server solution is an integral part of our consulting engagements and technical design patterns as it offers an immediate and welcome remedy to resolving a major issue for our customers.”

The partnership enables Planet Technologies to resell Thycotic Secret Server as well as provide technical support and professional services enabled by a rigorous Thycotic training and certification program.

“Planet is the definition of a strong working partnership,” according to Tamir Orbach, Vice President of Pro Services, Sales Engineering, and Knowledge Management at Thycotic.“Their Secret Server Certified Consultants have already added significant value to our clients in engagements of all sizes with over 20 engagements under their belt, and we look forward to continuing and expanding this partnership as Planet joins our channel reseller community.”

“Thycotic’s award winning security solutions and Planet’s premier Microsoft consulting services work together in perfect partnership to define and deliver solutions to the most critical security needs of enterprise customers,” Tucker concluded.
