Kuppinger writes that Xton “provides a well-thought-out solution that is focused on a lean and efficient implementation of key capabilities within Privileged Access Management, avoiding the overhead and complexity that comes with some of the other tools in the market.”
We hear from a lot of customers how overwhelming a PAM implementation can be. Many small or medium sized companies just don’t have the internal resources or budget for pricy consultants to implement and manage PAM software. From the beginning, we designed XTAM using a modern architecture to help simplify PAM implementations and management. We also believe that PAM should be affordable to all companies.
Highlights Include: Agentless, Infrastructure flexibility, SSH Tunnels and HTPP(s) Proxy
The report highlights how XTAM works completely agentless using OS and target system APIs. This allows for lean deployments and management as well as a transparent way to manage the connections to the target systems. An agentless approach is one of our core philosophies as a company. Users will never need to deploy an agent on their computer, be it a service, application or browser extension. The software will always work in a browser, including tablets and mobile devices.
Kuppinger writes that XTAM has a high degree of flexibility regarding infrastructure components and a modern interface. We use an agile development and this allows us to continuously advance the product to meet customer requirements. We also have a platform agnostic approach and support Windows or Linux along with a number of other protocols and technology integrations. This give users the flexibility to run XTAM on-premise, in the cloud or in a hybrid environment.
Concerning core PAM functionality, the report notes that XTAM provides a good baseline of features for managing shared account passwords and other sensitive credentials, with a well-structured repository of systems and related credentials. Session Management, Remote Control, and related capabilities are at a good level, providing well above a baseline set of features.
Other notable XTAM highlights from the report include:
- Automation of various reoccurring administrative tasks
- Agentless SSH Tunnels with SQL recording
- Agentless HTTP(s) Proxy with traffic recording
