AWS security solution provider delivers a comprehensive privileged identity and access management solution for AWS and hybrid cloud enterprises
HERNDON, Va., June 5 — Xceedium, Inc., the premier worldwide provider of Zero Trust privileged identity and access management solutions, today announced Xsuite Cloud. Xsuite Cloud is a comprehensive privileged identity and access management platform designed to provide additional protection for organizations that are taking advantage of the cost, power and scalability of Amazon Web Services (AWS) in conjunction with existing datacenter infrastructure. Xceedium is also working with AWS to make Xsuite Cloud and Zero Trust security available to AWS customers.
Whether using a cloud only strategy or leveraging a hybrid solution, customers can utilize the enterprise-class Xsuite Cloud platform and its unified policy management capability to seamlessly manage and enforce Privileged User Access policies and vault critical credentials. Furthermore, customers can enforce "Separation of Duties" for administrative access to AWS and AWS GovCloud.
"We continue to broaden our security capability through product enhancements as well as integration with security technology partners to meet growing customer demand," said Teresa Carlson, vice president, global public sector at Amazon Web Services. "The scalability and security certifications of Xceedium's Xsuite Cloud complement our ongoing initiatives for both AWS and AWS GovCloud."
Xsuite Cloud provides customers with a unified way to control, audit and continuously monitor all privileged access to the AWS Management Console and critical infrastructure deployed across the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) and Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), as well as other private clouds, on premise systems, or any combination thereof.
"Cloud computing is fundamentally changing how organizations deploy systems. But security risks and regulatory compliance issues remain top concerns for organizations seeking to adopt the cloud for mission critical systems," noted Glenn Hazard, Xceedium CEO. "Xsuite Cloud further enables organizations to choose cloud-only or hybrid architectures and provides privileged user access and identities from a single platform."
Xsuite Cloud: Privileged Identity and Access Management Platform for Enterprises Running Applications in the Cloud
Xsuite Cloud enables organizations to apply essential Zero Trust controls through a unified policy management system that simplifies configuration and ongoing maintenance. It provides the following major capabilities to control and audit privileged access to both the AWS Cloud and enterprise infrastructure:
Pricing and Availability
Xsuite Cloud will be available to customers during the second quarter of this year with pricing announced at that time. It will be delivered in both an Amazon Machine Instance (AMI) and hardened appliance form factor.
Xceedium is the leading provider of Zero Trust privileged identity and access management solutions. Xceedium products are used by large enterprises and global government agencies to meet stringent security and compliance requirements. Xceedium's world-class technology allows organizations to control access to their networks based on the user. It also contains the user to explicit resources, which eliminates the risk of allowing untrusted third parties and privileged users on networks. The company's technology secures and enforces policies for privileged user and application-to-application passwords. Coupled with cutting-edge monitoring capabilities, Xceedium solutions enable commercial and government organizations to address and prove compliance with requirements including PCI DSS, FISMA, NIST-800.53, HIPAA and NERC CIP. Xceedium's products are FIPS 140-2 Level 2 and Common Criteria EAL4+ certified. For more information, visit www.xceedium.com. For more on the Xsuite, watch our Xsuite 2-Minute Explainer.
The ever-growing complexity of scientific and engineering problems continues to pose new computational challenges. Thus, we present a novel federation model that enables end-users with the ability to aggregate heterogeneous resource scale problems. The feasibility of this federation model has been proven, in the context of the UberCloud HPC Experiment, by gathering the most comprehensive information to date on the effects of pillars on microfluid channel flow.
Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
Frank Ding, engineering analysis & technical computing manager at Simpson Strong-Tie, discussed the advantages of utilizing the cloud for occasional scientific computing, identified the obstacles to doing so, and proposed workarounds to some of those obstacles.

The study of climate change is one of those scientific problems where it is almost essential to model the entire Earth to attain accurate results and make worthwhile predictions. In an attempt to make climate science more accessible to smaller research facilities, NASA introduced what they call ‘Climate in a Box,’ a system they note acts as a desktop supercomputer.

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.
05/10/2013 | Cleversafe, Cray, DDN, NetApp, & Panasas | From Wall Street to Hollywood, drug discovery to homeland security, companies and organizations of all sizes and stripes are coming face to face with the challenges – and opportunities – afforded by Big Data. Before anyone can utilize these extraordinary data repositories, however, they must first harness and manage their data stores, and do so utilizing technologies that underscore affordability, security, and scalability.
04/02/2012 | AMD | Developers today are just beginning to explore the potential of heterogeneous computing, but the potential for this new paradigm is huge. This brief article reviews how the technology might impact a range of application development areas, including client experiences and cloud-based data management. As platforms like OpenCL continue to evolve, the benefits of heterogeneous computing will become even more accessible. Use this quick article to jump-start your own thinking on heterogeneous computing.
