NetIQ Partners with Northdoor to Offer Complete Security Solutions for Financial Clients

First VAR to Join New NetIQ EMEA Channel Program

Press Release


NetIQ today announced a new partnership with Northdoor - an integrated IT solutions provider specialized in the financial services industry - to deliver complete security solutions. Together, NetIQ and Northdoor will manage user access rights, provide comprehensive security information and event management (SIEM) and utilize IT Process Automation (ITPA) to ensure sustainable compliance and increased operational efficiencies.

Northdoor has an unrivaled heritage of working with major insurance and banking organizations on innovative system solutions. The company has developed considerable expertise in helping clients identify and implement technology solutions that meet tough compliance mandates on critical information management and data protection.

This partnership with NetIQ gives Northdoor access to NetIQ security solutions and NetIQ® Aegis®. Combined, these technologies automate: security administration and simplified management of Active Directory, single sign-on across multiple platforms, and security policy enforcement in line with regulatory requirements including Sarbanes Oxley, Basel II, HIPAA and PCI. The solution suite enables close monitoring of privileged user access and the provisioning and de-provisioning of users to protect customer computing environments.

"Secure IT is critical to every organization and our technology automates critical processes and ensures incidents are prevented and resolved effectively," said Ian McKay, director of EMEA Channel & Strategic Alliances. "With an outstanding track record of working with clients that must meet the highest security standards, Northdoor understands these issues intuitively and will enable us to provide customers with powerful solutions tailored to their needs."

"Our clients are confronted with a daunting set of security and compliance challenges that are constantly evolving and often difficult to manage and police efficiently," commented AJ Thompson, Sales Director at Northdoor. "NetIQ technology gives our consultants a platform on which to build an infrastructure for sustainable compliance and security management that safeguards a financial enterprise and its clients."

Northdoor is one of the first UK partners to join the new NetIQ EMEA partnership program. This aims to expand the NetIQ channel presence and grow the market for NetIQ Aegis, as well as the company's security and administration suites.
