WALLIX (Euronext ALLIX), a European software company providing cybersecurity solutions and the specialist in identity and access security, has been named “Overall Leader” for the second year in a row in the 2021 KuppingerCole Leadership Compass report.
WALLIX was awarded the highest level among the PAM (Privileged Access Management) international players selected by KuppingerCole analysts. Each year, KuppingerCole conducts its report which aims to provide companies with an overview of the different existing publishers of IT solutions as well as identifying who the leaders are in each field.
The Leadership Compass classifies publishers into four categories:
- Market Leaders: Organisations which have a large global customer base and a strong partner network to sell their solutions.
- Product Leaders: Organisations which have both leading-edge and mature products that largely meet KuppingerCole analysts’ expectations.
- Innovation Leaders: Organisations which drive innovation in their field by providing the most ground-breaking and promising features on the market.
- Overall Leaders: Organisations which achieve an above average overall result following a combined evaluation of the three previous categories, and thus dominate the market.
WALLIX was awarded for its strong partner network and flagship Bastion solution. The company was recognised as Product, Innovation, and Overall Leader, achieving near-perfect scores in security, features, interoperability, ease of use and deployment.
WALLIX’s success also comes from its focus on the channel. The Business Partner Program, which currently consists of 180 partners with 739 certified individuals , represents a total of more than 1,300 customers in more than 70 countries. WALLIX’s Business Partner Portal is constantly strengthening and expanding, particularly due to the growing number of partnership agreements with high-profile distributors – such as Arrow in the US or Tech Data in DACH and Spain – and also with regional value-added resellers to respond to the specificities of each market. WALLIX now has more than forty VARs in MEA.
In addition, WALLIX has continued to release updates to its product base to meet and anticipate customer needs. In the past months this included the strengthening of remote work security during the pandemic, the automation of cybersecurity for improved detection and response to cyber-attacks, real-time monitoring and recording of privileged accounts, the simplification of DevSecOps, and the development of AAPM (Application-to-Application Password Management) technology, with which passwords in WALLIX Bastion are never stored in clear text.
“Endorsed by its recognised expertise in privileged account management, WALLIX has been able to enrich WALLIX Bastion with very advanced features, thus offering a truly competitive PAM solution that should be seriously considered by companies.” retrieved from the KuppingerCole 2021 Leadership Compass report.
“Being recognised as an ‘Overall Leader’ in the KuppingerCole Leadership Compass is the result of WALLIX teams’ dedication that drive the development of the company and enable WALLIX to offer state-of-the-art PAM technology. WALLIX Bastion is a highly efficient solution that adapts to a company’s entire IT environment and responds to its specific use cases. Therefore, CISOs and cybersecurity managers can protect access to IT systems, cloud applications and workstations, in addition to securing employees and external suppliers’ digital identities. Finally, what sets us apart from other players in the market is our particular know-how in terms of industrial networks and healthcare IT systems protection, which are today’s major challenges of the digital transformation.”, explains Jean-Noel de Galzain, founder & CEO at WALLIX.
