BeyondTrust | September 19, 2022
BeyondTrust, the leader in intelligent identity and access security, announced today a new strategic partnership with NCS Group, a leading technology services firm that provides services and solutions in consulting, digital, technology, cybersecurity and more. A strong player in identity security, NCS will be using the technology provided by BeyondTrust to offer companies best practice solutions in Privileged Access Management (PAM), a core component of enabling Zero Trust security.
Organisations today are evolving as a result of digital transformation, an accelerating shift to cloud, and an expanded remote workforce. However, these changes are also creating an increase in vulnerable endpoints and remote access, as well as a large number of digital identities that pose a significant cybersecurity risk if left unmanaged and unsecured. According to Gartner, unauthorised privileged access is now the primary method that threat attackers use to infiltrate an organisation's systems and network.
"From the rise of ransomware to an increased focus on digital transformation and Zero Trust strategies, it is a critical time for organisations to be equipped with solutions that can secure identities, safeguard access for remote employees, and strengthen endpoint security across hybrid environments. "Through this partnership, BeyondTrust and NCS will enable organisations in Asia Pacific with our Privileged Access Management (PAM) solutions to address these cybersecurity challenges."
Ben Wong, Director of Channel and Alliance for Asia Pacific & Japan at BeyondTrust
"When organisations think of access management, they may only think of traditional password management – and that should not be the case. There is an urgent need for organisations to implement more advanced endpoint security and access management solutions and many are still playing catch up in this area," said Mr. Wong. "This partnership with NCS enables us to provide tailored PAM solutions to customers across a wide range of industries from government to the commercial sectors. Combining the skills and experience of NCS with BeyondTrust's leading portfolio of PAM solutions will help their customers defend against the evolving threat landscape."
BeyondTrust is a leader in the 2022 Gartner Magic Quadrant for PAM for the fourth year running, with a comprehensive PAM portfolio that enables identity and access security that is monitored, managed, secured, and just-in-time, and includes these solutions::

Security Compass | August 26, 2022
Security Compass, a leading cybersecurity solution provider, has published the results of a research study examining developer views on application security, including the challenges and opportunities they face in their secure development efforts. The report, “2022 Developer Perspectives on Application Security,” provides a deep dive into security maturity, threats, requirements, tools, resources, and training.
In order for software developers and security teams to effectively collaborate and ensure that a company’s software products are secure, developers need automated, current, relevant, and actionable JITT training embedded into their development tools and processes. Security Compass’ research found that while most developers believe their enterprise has a mature security posture, almost half find it challenging to stay up to date with current security and compliance-related activities. The “2022 Developer Perspectives on Application Security” study raises awareness about how automation can solve many challenges for developers in secure application development.
Key takeaways from the study include:
The number one most important means to thwarting security threats according to developers is automated threat modeling (46% claiming it was “mission critical” and another 36% indicating it was “quite important”).
42% of developers who have been assigned requirements related to security and compliance find it challenging to stay up to date with current security and compliance-related activities.
28% of respondents claim that scope “creep” in security compounds challenges, with another 19% believing that security processes take too much time.
Overall, developers are in favor of security training, with 32% of developers opting to pursue training on their own (63% of respondents reported being mandated to do training).
Developers from smaller companies ($10M to $100M) were more than twice as likely (31% vs. 14%) as those from the largest companies ($5B+) to use ad hoc or reactive means to “gate-keep” releases from a security perspective.
On average, 34% of software requirements are related in some way to security and compliance, yet only 25% of companies have shifted security left into the Design Stage of software development.
“When building secure software, developers must be system thinkers. Ideally, they engage secure methods early in the design process, engage with key security personnel and stakeholders and insist on automated cybersecurity tools that efficiently guide them throughout the SDLC," said Rohit Sethi, CEO of Security Compass. “Software built with the needs of software developers at the forefront is essential to the task of cybersecurity, and companies that want to attract and support developers in their efforts to build cyber-resilient software need to look to integrated cybersecurity software. This is reinforced by Security Compass’ study that software that provides just-in-time training (JITT) and guidelines for software developers is essential for accomplishing these goals.”

About the Survey
Security Compass commissioned Golfdale Consulting to conduct this survey research project. The survey was conducted in Q2 2022 and was based on 250 respondents from the US and UK markets working in companies ranging from $10 million to $10 billion in size. Half of the developers surveyed worked for technology companies, while the other half came from enterprises ranging from manufacturing to insurance . Respondent roles included a mix of developers from software development/DevOps (62%), IT infrastructure and back office (22%) and cyber/information security (14%).
