SecZetta and SecurePoint Announce Partnership to Strengthen Third-Party Identity Lifecycle and Risk Management in Africa

FALL RIVER, MA and CAPE TOWN, South Africa– October 30, 2020 – SecZetta, the leading provider of third-party identity management solutions, and SecurePoint, a leading identity solutions provider, today announced a new distribution partnership. Together, SecZetta and SecurePoint provide clients with an end-to-end solution for third-party identity lifecycle and risk management, placed into the context of their broader IAM and risk management practices.

Despite the emergence of identity management solutions more than 10 years ago, organizations today continue to struggle with a wide variety of identity and access related challenges. At the same time, new regulations, cloud computing, and the drive towards mobile and tablet computing have exacerbated the situation and increased the need to find a solution.  Industry-wide, organizations are granting growing and increasingly diverse populations of human and non-human workers with access to facilities, systems, and data.  However, most organizations still rely on inefficient and highly manual processes for onboarding and offboarding that often lead to over-provisioning, compliance and audit nightmares, orphaned accounts, and ultimately greater risk exposure.

“SecZetta is the global market leader in Third Party Identity Risk Management and provides a much needed solution to enable customers to gain visibility and control over third party identities in their environments – whether these be contractors, B2B users, supply chain partners or even non-human identities such as Bots or Service Accounts,” said Peter Hunter, Managing Director, SecurePoint. “By Partnering with SecZetta we are able to address a critical risk area facing most businesses – how to better manage third party human as well as non-human access to their systems.”

“As a provider of best-in-class services for data and risk management, SecurePoint’s consulting and reseller services, in conjunction with SecZetta’s non-employee solutions, will empower customers to utilize third-party resources to support their business strategies while at the same time meeting compliance requirements and reducing third-party risk,” said Jeremy Rohrs, VP of global alliances and business development, SecZetta. “SecurePoint gives SecZetta access to the entire continent of Africa through their existing partner network and customers including exciting growth opportunities in South Africa, Nigeria, Kenya, and Egypt.”
