BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA and HAWTHORNE, NJ--(Marketwired - Feb 17, 2015) - First Point Global, a leading Identity and Access Management (IAM) solutions firm, today announced that it will partner with STEALTHbits Technologies, a leading data security company that ensures the right employees have the right access to the right information. STEALTHbits develops solutions that identify and secure unstructured data -- including documents, spreadsheets, videos, PowerPoint presentations -- on enterprise networks, and integrates seamlessly with IAM solutions.

"The STEALTHbits relationship is key to providing extended identity and access governance capability to our customers," noted John Havers, CEO and founder of First Point Global. "STEALTHbits has been complementing and improving the success rate of IAM solutions for years, and they've been working with the leading IAM vendors very closely. The partnership between First Point Global and STEALTHbits fits like a glove."

STEALTHbits enables and improves IAM deployments in two ways. First, their solutions speed and ease the cleanup of Active Directory before and during IAM projects to greatly improve the probability of IAM success and effectiveness. Second, STEALTHbits provides the link between the IAM solution and the massive amount of unstructured data that resides on nearly all corporate networks.

"It is estimated that 80% of the data on a typical enterprise network is unstructured," added Jonathan Sander, STEALTHbits' Strategy and Research Officer. "More importantly, however, the highly sensitive information resides in that 80%: contracts, proprietary formulas, designs, financials, marketing plans, you name it. IAM solutions have a hard time managing access to all that information, and STEALTHbits fills that gap."
