Fishtech Group Joins OneLogin Accelerate Partner Program

Cybersecurity solutions provider Fishtech Group has joined the OneLogin Accelerate identity and access management (IAM) partner program, according to a prepared statement. The announcement comes after Fishtech in February appointed Kerry Kilker as its EVP and CISO and opened a new Cyber Innovation Center in Northwest Arkansas.

Fishtech plans to incorporate the OneLogin unified access management (UAM) platform into its portfolio and offer IAM solutions to its customers, the company said. It also looks poised to capitalize on the rising demand for IAM solutions globally.

Global IAM market revenues are projected to increase at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 16 percent between 2016 and 2022, industry analyst Market Research Future indicated. In addition, these revenues could total $24 billion by 2022.

A Closer Look at OneLogin Accelerate

OneLogin Accelerate is available to MSSPs, independent software vendors (ISVs), value-added resellers (VARs) and other channel partners and enables them to integrate the company's UAM platform into their portfolios. The program also provides channel partners with access to marketing and sales tools, training programs and various OneLogin resources.

OneLogin's UAM platform allows channel partners to safeguard organizations' applications via single sign-on, the company stated. In doing so, the platform streamlines app access across organizations' on-premises and cloud environments.

FishTech Expansion

FishTech, meanwhile, has been in expansion mode. The company in February 2019 appointed Kerry Kilker as its EVP and CISO. Kilker previously served as SVP and CISO at Walmart, where he managed security operations across the retailer’s stores, clubs and distribution centers.

At the same time, FishTech veteran Eric Foster shifted to COO for the company's Cyber Defense & Response (CYDERES) division, where he is responsible for managing the group’s operations, resources and go-to-market strategy.

Earlier, Fishtech in December 2018 unveiled a security-as-a-service (SECaaS) group for enterprises with 500 or fewer employees.

Fishtech was founded by cybersecurity industry veteran Gary Fish, who previously worked with firewall management software company FireMon and information security solutions provider FishNet Security.
