Mycroft Inc. Announces Opening of Seattle, WA Product Innovation Center to Extend Cloud-Based IAM Platform

Mycroft Inc., a leading provider of IT identity and security solutions and services, today announced the opening of a new product innovation center in Seattle, WA to focus on extending the company’s cloud-based platform to provide identity intelligence analytics, complete governance services and a further streamlined user experience.

These key innovations will build on the company’s Identity and Access Management (IAM) SaaS platform, called XSpectra, to help customers identify, quantify and reduce risk in real-time, address growing compliance requirements within the healthcare, financial and insurance industries, as well as enhance the platform’s user friendly experience.

To jumpstart these innovations, Mycroft Inc. also announced the promotion of Lester Rivera, who will lead technical architecture development and execution for XSpectra. Additionally, Sebastien Fouillade recently joined the Mycroft Inc. team in Seattle to head up the company’s product vision and strategy.

“As one of the technology hubs of the country, Seattle was an obvious choice to execute our vision for XSpectra,” said Jonathan Freeman, CEO, Mycroft Inc. “Both our platform launch and forthcoming innovations are the direct result of a carefully crafted strategy derived from years of analyzing our implementation and strategic consulting experiences, as well as, listening to and understanding our customers pain points. We now have the right set-up and the right team in place to guide XSpectra into a market leading position.”

Located at 5400 Carillon Point, Kirkland, WA, the new center is Mycroft Inc.’s first west coast location. The company has three other US-based offices in New York City, St. Louis and Detroit.

Focused on delivering a full spectrum of IAM services that integrate with a wide range of customer environments, XSpectra, powered by CA CloudMinder, expands Mycroft Inc.’s current market offerings with automated provisioning beyond Active Directory to include any targeted endpoint whether on-premise or in the cloud. Additionally, the innovative service incorporates multifactor and risk-based authentication with a wide variety of credential formats and allows for configurable policies for custom risk assessments, helping organizations reduce risk by minimizing usage of static passwords to access applications.

XSpectra also delivers a wide range of foundational identity services including user self-service and federated single sign-on to applications across cloud, hosted or on-premise environments. XSpectra offers three flexible support level packages to meet the budgets and needs of a wide variety of customers.

The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Alex Lovell-Troy, Director of Solutions Engineering at Pythian, presented a roadmap that can be leveraged by any organization to plan, analyze, evaluate, and execute on moving from configuration management tools to cloud orchestration tools. He also addressed the three major cloud vendors as well as some tools that will work with any cloud.
When applications are hosted on servers, they produce immense quantities of logging data. Quality engineers should verify that apps are producing log data that is existent, correct, consumable, and complete. Otherwise, apps in production are not easily monitored, have issues that are difficult to detect, and cannot be corrected quickly. Tom Chavez presents the four steps that quality engineers should include in every test plan for apps that produce log output or other machine data. Learn the steps so your team's apps not only function but also can be monitored and understood from their machine data when running in production.
Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, John Newton, CTO, Founder and Chairman of Alfresco, described how to scale cloud-based content management repositories to store, manage, and retrieve billions of documents and related information with fast and linear scalability. He addressed the challenges of scaling document repositories to this level; architectural approaches for coordinating data; search and storage technologies, Solr, and Amazon storage and database technologies; the breadth of use cases that modern content systems need to support; how to support user applications that require subsecond response times.
