HelpSystems announced today that it has acquired Fox Technologies, a solution provider in the cybersecurity industry since 2001, from Parallax Capital Partners. Fox Technologies solutions help organizations tighten security by centralizing Linux and Unix identity and access management. With the acquisition, HelpSystems can help customers manage user privilegesÃ¢â‚¬â€granting employees the right amount of access necessary to perform their jobsÃ¢â‚¬â€across a greater range of operating systems. This capability is critical as most cyberattacks are carried out by company insiders. It also protects organizations from outsider attacks because fewer users have elevated privileges, limiting the exposure of sensitive data if credentials are compromised.
