Identity and Access Management remains a significant consideration for UK enterprises, as many fail to adequately prepare and plan for this aspect of their business. This challenge can be compounded by a shortage of skilled staff, which negatively affects how organisations respond to IT security issues. While the instances of information security breaches in the UK were down slightly in 2014, 81 per cent of large organisations and 60 per cent of small businesses experienced a breach in the past 12 months[1].

“In a world of increasing and more impactful global cyber attacks, it has never been more important for businesses to get their IT security infrastructure in place,” said Thierry Bettini, Sales Director at Ilex International. “Too often, Identity and Access Management is an afterthought, but enterprises must show a commitment to it in order to know who has access to what on their IT System. Failing to adequately address and minimise the risk of cyber attacks could be catastrophic for a modern business.”

“Mobility is definitely the biggest challenge UK enterprises face with IT security. With the rise of BYOD, cloud based solutions, wearable technology and the Internet of Things - users and consumers have never been more mobile. Enterprises must take a holistic approach when it comes to mobile devices. Mobile can not be seen as an exception to security infrastructure, instead they must be managed by the same authentication, access and single sign-on solution. Ilex offers a complete and comprehensive solution for UK enterprises,” Mr Bettini said.

As part of their expansion to the UK, Ilex will open their first office in London and are currently seeking integration partners across the IT channel. For Ilex, partners are instrumental in ensuring the quality of service the clients require. The vendor proposes a partner program in order to build a long-term relationship of trust with its partners while maintaining a consistent development strategy.
