Insight Partners Selling Thycotic PAM Security Business?

Private equity firm Insight Partners is preparing to sell Thycotic, a privileged account management (PAM) security software provider, PE Hub reports.

Insight Partners invested in Thycotic in July 2015, though dollar and valuation details were not disclosed. At the time of the investment, Thycotic had driven 141% year-over-year growth since 2011, and was serving more than 3,000 customers worldwide.

More recently, Thycotic has been busy on the partner front -- working closely with multiple Top 250 MSSPs -- including Deloitte, Ernst & Young, and PwC. Additional relationships have included BlackBerry Cylance and IBM Security.
