WALLIX launches WAB Access Manager. Brings to market true multi-tenancy for managing privileged users

London, UK, 21 September 2015 - Privileged access management is emerging as the de facto means of securing and centralising access to an organisation’s most precious data. But as the number of systems being managed in this way increases, so does the number of users needing access, which increases the level of risk (and complexity) for multiple sites and networks.

To simplify this process, Wallix has today (21st of September) launched WAB Access Manager (WAM), the IT industry’s first dedicated web portal that acts as a single ‘pane of glass’ providing  access to all the systems of a multi-site IT infrastructure; thereby delivering true multi-tenancy for organisations with global IT functions or even entirely separate networks. By adopting a single, easy-to-use, portal, these organisations will be able to accelerate the deployment of privileged access management to more systems and users thereby offering them improved system management and security.  

Commenting on the new company’s product, Jean-Noel De Galzain, CEO of WALLIX said, “With the market for privileged access management growing by over 30% in the last year1, more businesses than ever - including cloud providers - are using administrative gateways to secure and centralise access to IT infrastructure housing precious data. But it’s vital to ensure the very best in usability from a simple and centralised solution.  This offers the added advantage that those users that have been granted privileged access can log in securely from any device and have the same effective user experience”.

Giving system access to contractors and third-party vendors is made simpler and more secure using WAB Access Manager. Very little experience of the solution is required as the intuitive “One-Click” portal is straightforward to navigate and offers a single point of access. Extensive customisation options also makes WAB Access Manager ideal for cloud providers, especially those who need to deliver on-demand solutions for privileged access management that’s tailored to each of their client’s environments.

Leading IT security analyst Martin Kuppinger says, "Privileged access management has entered organizations and is now in a phase of deployment and broad adaptation. Every organisation needs to be ready to facilitate this movement. WAB Access Manager is a product that should be evaluated by corporations and cloud providers when putting together the building blocks for implementing the privileged access management strategy.” WAB Access Manager works in combination with deployments of WALLIX Admin Bastion (WAB). By creating a single portal, Access Manager doesn’t just enable multi-tenancy but allows for high availability and load balancing in the background.

To further maximise usability, WAB Access Manager allows access to any managed system using HTML5, so it works easily with tablets and smartphones. Users don’t even need to download and install separate software.

For auditing, WAB Access Manager is also able to consolidate session recordings and activity trails from every network and system to create reports that help monitor access and prove regulatory compliance.    

WAB Access Manager allows users to get rid of VPNs to remotely access servers and other devices increasing usability and productivity for organizations.

WAB Access Manager allows businesses to secure IT infrastructure, on premise or in the cloud with full control of privileged accesses and users. Designed for the optimal user experience this central portal has the potential to transform how secured remote access is used every day.

WALLIX announced the world’s first on-demand solution for privileged access management

WALLIX (, the software company that provides cyber-security and governance solutions for information systems access, today (2nd July 2015) announced the world’s first on-demand solution for privileged access management.

The vendor is launching its new product - WAB On Demand (WOD) - to help service providers dealing with sensitive data deliver improved access control and auditing to their customers. Based on a multi-tenancy, pay per user model, WOD requires no prior investment and no fixed costs.

Helping Cloud Service Providers meet the audit and compliance concerns of their customers

The new product meets the higher levels of security and compliance demanded by businesses who are migrating their IT to the cloud. Despite widespread adoption of cloud services1, the perception that it carries risk remains high among security professionals2, with one of the most significant barriers to cloud implementation being the increased compliance and regulatory challenges that organisations face when choosing to move to cloud services or hosted solutions3.

Built on existing Wallix AdminBastion (WAB) technology, WAB On Demand (WOD) helps cloud and managed service providers to address these concerns with a unique product dedicated to the auditing and control of privileged access.

Martin Kuppinger, Principal Analyst and Founder of KuppingerCole noted, “A growing proportion of organisations are turning to outsourcing and the cloud, seeking more guarantees on how these resources are accessed, secured and consistent with business requirements. Solutions such as the WOD combine the security and visibility needed to adopt the cloud with confidence and thus should be evaluated as part of the overall information security framework.”

Chris Pace, WALLIX Head Of Product Marketing in the UK said, "Being able to manage and audit privileged user access to hosted systems means that Cloud Service Providers can assure their customers that only the right users have the right access, all while meeting their contractual requirements and keeping customer environments effectively segmented ”

WOD provides this increased control and auditing which means that service providers can play their part in putting their customers on a fast route to compliance. The new product delivers not only full activity logs but also screen captures and video recordings of every privileged user session;  information that is invaluable in the event of a security breach.

WOD is built on a multi tenancy model, providing a single window for managed, secured and monitored remote access to all the customer resources that a service provider is responsible for.

Better visibility for customers, business advantages for providers

Dominique Meurisse, COO of WALLIX said, “We are seeing an extremely fast adoption rate for this solution. Providers see that WOD can offer them a key differentiator in their market as well as reducing many customer concerns regarding the risks associated with outsourcing. The scalability of WOD is also a factor, allowing for a smaller implementation to be quickly expanded to meet the customers need.”

When packaged in a hosting solution, WOD is extremely attractive to both existing customers and potential new clients. Adopting a business model that requires no initial investment or fixed cost allows for scalability and a solution that will grow with the customer’s needs.

WOD enables comprehensive real-time monitoring of the activities of its stakeholders in each individual client environment and secures management of access, creating an on demand password vault which removes the weaknesses of shared credentials. WOD also protects the provider by delivering concrete and invaluable evidence of their commitment to defined SLAs when accessing managed resources for their customers.

Jean-Noel Galzain CEO of WALLIX conclude, “Just weeks after our successful IPO on the Alternext market of Euronext, WALLIX GROUP confirms with this launch its capacity for innovation, enabling us to enhance our offering to the Privileged Access Management market . WOD will be an important lever for development internationally, addressing a clear need in the cloud computing space. This launch confirms WALLIX ambition to become a leader in the next generation of cyber security solutions.”


1. Microsoft believes that the global market for cloud services has multiplied by 2.5 between 2009 and 2014 to reach $106bn
2. Cloud Security Spotlight Bitglass 2015 confirms that 90% are concerned about the security of cloud computing
3. A recent report by the Cloud Security Alliance noted that 80% of respondents require greater transparency and enhanced audit controls

Gulf Air Improves Data Confidentiality and Service Availability with Wallix Privileged User Management Solution

Gulf Air Improves Data Confidentiality and Service Availability with Wallix Privileged User Management Solution

Wallix AdminBastion minimises internal and external IT security risks and helps airline to meet international aviation compliance requirements

London, UK, 8 June 2015 - Wallix, the European software company specialising in access, traceability and audit solutions, today announced that Gulf Air, the national carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain, has implemented Wallix’s privileged user management solution, Wallix AdminBastion.

The solution meets the airline's need for improved data security including improving its internal IT access arrangements, minimising the risk of data leaks and enabling it to have complete oversight over IT services with no system disturbance.  After implementing a proof of concept, Gulf Air chose Wallix AdminBastion for its ability to provide real-time monitoring capabilities, immediate access to video recordings of these sessions and comprehensive auditing to meet compliance requirements. Thanks to its agentless design, Wallix AdminBastion does not inhibit the performance of overall data centre services, helping Gulf Air to maintain airline operations in excess of 99.9%.

Commenting on the airline's decision to appoint Wallix, Dr Jassim Haji, director of IT, Gulf Air, said, “Wallix helped in providing real time resource management, reporting and monitoring capabilities for IT administrators, improving the overall efficiency of Gulf Air’s IT function. Privileged access management is instrumental for Gulf Air in complying with the required international and industry standards. We’re currently certified against the ISO 27001 standard and maintain compliance with PCI-DSS.”

Commenting on the important role that access management plays within an organisations' overall IT security strategy, Chris Pace, Head of Product Marketing at Wallix, said, "Ineffective access management is increasingly recognised as a security weakness that organisations must address. The majority of data breaches come about as result of internal access flaws, which hackers or rogue insiders can exploit. Minimising the internal threat bolsters overall security by making it almost impossible for hackers to gain a foothold.”

Matthias Reinwarth, senior analyst at security analyst firm, KuppingerCole, explained, “Even though failing to safeguard data confidentiality risks exposing sensitive customer details, disrupting operations and reputational damage, in practice, there is rarely a life-cycle management system in place for privileged users and the danger of password leaks is considered high when internal administrators leave an organisation or the contract period of an external administrator comes to an end.”

Administrators and super user accounts are extremely powerful, allowing so-called 'privileged' users to anonymously log on and gain complete control over the target system with full access to all information and infrastructure.  

The security threat posed by insiders was recently highlighted in a survey for the UK Government's Department for Business Innovation & Skills and conducted by PWC which found that 30% of the most damaging data breaches were as a result of those already inside the company. Gulf Air has implemented Wallix AdminBastion to ensure that only approved administrators and third party vendors can access the systems. The solution makes it simple for users who need access to easily request it and information security professionals not only to see active sessions but also easily to revoke or limit access.

Quick opts for Wallix AdminBastion to monitor the actions of its external service providers on its network

Paris, 6 may 2015 - Quick opts for Wallix AdminBastion to monitor the actions of its external service providers on its network

Founded in Belgium in 1970, Quick has been for more than forty years, one of the leading fast food chains specializing in burgers. Ever since its creation, the group has opened almost 500 restaurants in France, then in Belgium as well as in Luxembourg, Reunion, New Caledonia and Martinique. It has more than 19 000 employees.

Fabien Chevrel is Quick’s datacenter and information security manager. His mission is to manage both datacenters, one located in France and the other in Belgium, and to take charge, in particular, of all issues relating to servers, storage and networks. He also performs the group’s information security duties (selection of solutions, technological watch, observation of new threats, implementation of policies, etc.). He manages a team of five people.

Initial needs

A dozen of external service providers carry out support and maintenance operations remotely on the sensitive applications on Quick’s information system. As the population of external service providers grows along with a company the size of Quick, password management can become tedious, restrictive and problematic.
The Wallix AdminBastion solution is introduced by Brain Networks that is the Quick systems integrator. At the time, without any concrete plans to acquire a privileged user monitoring and management solution, Fabien Chevrel saw the solution providing the possibility of centralizing passwords and managing them subtly without communicating them to the said service providers.


In collaboration with Brain Networks, Mr Chevrel tested WALLIX’s solution, while finding out about competitive solutions on the market. After several weeks of tests, convinced that Wallix AdminBastion was the solution that was most relevant to his needs, he adopted the product. In a very short time, a cluster of two WAB 50s in high availability was implemented directly on Quick’s network (on the VLAN). The implementation phases, setting and training were conducted by Brain Networks has played a strategic role in the launch of the project.

Advantages of the solution

On the network, WAB is the central and unique authentication and connection point for all external service providers. They now no longer log on in a disorganized and disorderly manner to the various resources on the network, but must authenticate via WAB, which then redistributes access according to the delegated privileges. Authorization is given only by a single machine – WAB. Fabien Chevrel now no longer needs to communicate any passwords to his administrators or external service providers. Likewise, as these populations are likely to grow, the management of their privileges is now centralized and a lot easier.

Thanks to Wallix AdminBastion, whenever an incident arises, the demarcation of perimeters between internal teams and external actors is clearly defined.

“Wallix AdminBastion is a solution for tracking and monitoring privileged users that is adapted to the needs of Quick.”
Fabien Chevrel, Datacenter and information security manager, Quick

Wallix AdminBastion’s compatibility now extends to the main hypervisors on the market

The vendor now covers Microsoft Hyper-V, KVM and VMWare in particular.

KVM Microsoft Hyper-V et KVM wallixParis, April 15th 2014:WALLIX, European vendor specializing in the traceability and control of privileged accounts announced today the compatibility of Wallix AdminBastion 4.0 (WAB) with virtualization infrastructures Microsoft Hyper-V and KVM. Last year, the vendor had announced the compatibility of its Privileged User Management solution with VMware ESX Server.

For the specialist in the traceability and control of privileged accounts, compatibility with these new hypervisors means that WAB is available not only in the form of hardware appliances, but integrates in the market’s main virtualization environments as well. Businesses can thus deploy the privileged user management solution in the technical architecture of their choice. This gives the solution high operational flexibility and unmatched versatility on the market.

For example, compatibility with KVM now allows installing WAB in OpenStack architectures which have been adopted by many public, hybrid and private cloud providers, thereby providing “cloud” infrastructures with a level of security similar to the levels found in internal corporate infrastructures.

Likewise, WAB’s compatibility with Microsoft Hyper-V allows many clients, such as administrations or hospitals that have opted for this technology, to deploy Wallix AdminBastion while benefiting from the ecosystem existing around Microsoft Hyper-V.

Jean-Noël de Galzain, CEO and founder of WALLIX commented, “We have been increasingly successful on the market, in France as well as abroad. Extending Wallix AdminBastion’s compatibility to other hypervisors was naturally the next step to a trend that began with VMware ESX coverage and WAB’s VMWare Ready certification. As virtual environments are becoming more widespread due to the advantages for which they are known, it has become strategic for WALLIX to be able to offer these infrastructures a solution that can further strengthen their security, especially in terms of privileged user management. Eventually, it will be possible to integrate Wallix AdminBastion into any type of virtual infrastructure.”

In order to complement support for these virtualization infrastructures, WALLIX has issued a new type of “corporate” license, that will enable the deployment of as many WABs as necessary to protect a defined number of resources. As such, any WALLIX client with a corporate license can accurately adapt his WAB infrastructure to his technical requirements, without having to acquire additional licenses.

WAB as a Service: WALLIX launches AdminBastion in MSSP mode

The French vendor now offers its clients the possibility of installing Wallix AdminBastion, its privileged user traceability and control solution, in their infrastructures while delegating the administration and daily operation of the product to a trusted third party

WABASParis, April 1st, 2014: WALLIX, European leader in the traceability of access and management of privileged accounts announced today the launch of its WAB As A Service (WaaS) range, which now makes it possible to own a privileged user traceability and control solution in an information system administered by a trusted third party.

This range is aimed especially at CIOs and CISOs who are convinced of the helpfulness of Privileged User Management solutions such as Wallix AdminBastion, but whose resources for operating one are limited.

For Jean-Noël de Galzain, CEO and founder of WALLIX, “The challenges of controlling privileged users keep growing. The number of incidents – whether voluntary or involuntary – relating to these internal or external user populations increases every single day. Most of the incidents have huge financial repercussions arising from the increase in privileges granted on a database or sensitive system. This would be a hacker’s logical approach after having managed to penetrate a network. However, we noticed that certain decision makers are restricted in the way they use PUM solutions due to a lack of human resources dedicated to the daily operation of the solution. In this context, WALLIX provides a solution in a fully administered service mode and transforms the initial investment into a rental that includes the solution as well as its operation.”

The principle of this range is very simple: a Wallix AdminBastion solution, scaled to the requirements of the company, is installed in the premises then managed by a trusted third party who takes charge of the day-to-day administration and operation of the solution, specifically: installation of WAB, remote monitoring, operation (adding/deleting users, modifying resources or administrators and  maintenance).

The range also includes the generation of a monthly report summarizing the overall activity on Wallix AdminBastion.


There are many advantages to WAB as a Service:

Full delegation of the project to a trusted third party:
- From the installation stage to day-to-day management, PUM becomes a solution. The availability of teams is no longer an issue, and they can as such focus on the information produced by a neutral third party instead of on the production of information

Financial flexibility of the implementation:
- There is no investment in terms of licenses or maintenance, and actual cost can be planned, as WaaS is based on a flat rate in the form of a monthly fee that includes the cost of human intervention.

Jean-Noël de Galzain added “This new range follows a trend that is already strong on the IT market. There is indeed a considerable divide between the diversity or even the number of solutions on the market, and the available resources for administering them in a company. In this context, the service mode makes perfect sense. Offering WAB As A Service means giving our clients the opportunity to benefit from the best in the innovation of protection from internal threats, governance of the access granted to external service providers, and password management, while keeping investment costs low, without the deployment constraints and without having to form internal teams. In short, it’s protection with an immediate return on investment.”

WAB as a Service is already available.  Quotes will be given upon request.
