Semperis and TrustKey Partner to Deliver Comprehensive Directory Protection to the South Korean Market
Partnership Extends Award-Winning Hybrid Identity Protection Solution to Boost Resiliency for Global Organizations Across South Korea
NEW YORK--(Business Wire / Korea Newswire) December 23, 2020 -- Semperis, the pioneer of identity-driven cyber resilience for enterprises, today announced a new partnership with TrustKey Solutions, a leader in secure authentication solutions worldwide. Under this agreement, TrustKey will act as an authorized distributor and reseller, delivering Semperis’ solutions for protecting critical enterprise directory services to the TrustKey customer base of Global 2000 enterprises and organizations across South Korea.
Defending central identity stores such as Microsoft Active Directory is increasingly vital for organizations in South Korea, which has been identified as a primary target for hackers, including organized hacker groups from North Korea looking for sensitive national and industry data. A recent survey found that cyber fatigue in Korea is twice as high as the global average, with Korean companies receiving an average of 100,000 security warnings per day.
With today’s news, TrustKey’s leading secure passwordless solutions for Active Directory (AD) are further extended with Semperis’ identity-driven protection and recovery solutions. AD is often referred to as the ‘Achilles heel’ of enterprise security. Organizations using TrustKey’s FIDO2 technology can now benefit from Semperis’ comprehensive AD security before, during and after a cyber crisis.
In addition, the partnership empowers organizations to embrace digital transformation. Together, Semperis and TrustKey provide a comprehensive solution, which includes back-end and front-end security, protecting organizations whether they are on-premises, in the cloud or in hybrid environments.
“There’s a huge demand in the market now for threat mitigation and rapid response to directory attacks, with organizations suffering from cyber fatigue and struggling to prioritize cyber risk. The recent E-Land ransomware attack and subsequent store shutdowns in South Korea further underscored what’s at stake in this battle,” said Richard Weeks, vice president, global channels and alliances at Semperis. “TrustKey is a proven leader with strong ties in the South Korean market. Our partnership with TrustKey further expands Semperis’ global presence, empowering organizations in South Korea and across the world with the leading technology and solutions for threat mitigation and rapid response to directory attacks.”
The Global 2000 and government agencies rely on Semperis for comprehensive protection for their directory services on-premises and in the cloud. The company’s patented AD technology protects over 40 million identities from cyberattacks by continuously assessing security posture, automatically remediating dangerous modifications, and enabling rapid response. With Semperis, organizations can continuously monitor their directories for security vulnerabilities, intercept cyberattacks in progress, and quickly respond to breaches and operational errors.
“TrustKey is building a strategic partnership with the leaders in the security industry,” said Stephen Oh, CEO of TrustKey Solutions. “We’re excited to announce that we have entered into a partnership with Semperis, building a holistic security partnership to bring strong security solutions to our clients and end users. Through this partnership and with others, we will strive to protect our clients and users from malicious attacks and harm brought on by malware and other cyber threats.”
