Company Identified as Emerging Leader in Identity and Access Management for SaaS and Cloud Applications

Conformity Inc., provider of the first enterprise-class management and governance solution for SaaS and cloud applications, today announced that is has been named to Network World magazine’s prestigious top 10 list of IT Management Start-Ups to Watch for 2009. The list features emerging management technologies that help IT organizations deliver optimized services in increasingly virtualized and cloud computing-oriented environments.

The Conformity solution provides customers a centralized point of management for all cloud applications and users, enabling them to reduce the security and compliance risks and operational costs associated with on-demand applications. The Conformity solution is designed to arm enterprises with the same level of visibility and control over on-demand applications as they’ve come to expect with traditional packaged apps, and includes user provisioning, role management, workflow approvals, directory integration, compliance reporting, usage analytics and change management capabilities.

"Conformity offers an interesting concept because if all IT managers do jump on the cloud, then they are going to have to figure out the best way to integrate and manage access to these services, while ensuring that everyone's identity is consistent. The company is talking about providing identity management, a sort of single sign on, across all these different cloud or SaaS-provided services," said Jasmine Noel, co-founder and principal analyst at Ptak, Noel & Associates.

“We are excited and honored to be recognized as a top IT management start-up by Network World,” said Scott Bils, founder and chief marketing officer for Conformity. “Conformity’s solution is helping our enterprise customers extend their IT policies and controls to on-demand applications, enabling them to accelerate adoption of SaaS and cloud-based resources.”
