EmpowerID is amongst the strongest vendors in the market, relying on a single, integrated platform.
Dublin, OH (PRWEB) January 21, 2015
In KuppingerCole’s latest report evaluating Identity and Access Management (IAM) / Identity Access Governance (IAG) Product Suites, EmpowerID was recognized as a three time leader. The IAM/IAG Leadership Compass “focuses on complete IAM/IAG (Identity Access Management/Governance) suites that ideally cover all major areas of IAM/IAG as a fully integrated offering,” Martin Kuppinger wrote in the report.
KuppingerCole, a respected global analyst focused on Information Security, examined Identity and Access Management / Governance Suites for this report. They specifically evaluated products that are integrated solutions with a broader scope than single-purpose products. Martin Kuppinger concluded in the report, “With their Windows-based product they [EmpowerID] offer one of the best integrated IAM Suites. All components have been built by EmpowerID, allowing for tight integration into a well thought-out architecture. This integrated approach is a clear strength of EmpowerID."
An enterprise can deploy and manage a complete IAM/IAG solution more quickly and at a lower cost when multiple functional areas are tightly integrated as a suite. KuppingerCole evaluated competing suites’ key functionality areas, including: platform support and deployment models; administrative user interfaces; end user interfaces; data models; APIs; deployment; and technical integration between functional areas. The report concluded that “EmpowerID is amongst the strongest vendors in the market, relying on a single, integrated platform." IAM/IAG suites also drastically cut expenses for large enterprises by automating user provisioning and maintaining user privileges in addition to securing access to resources.
Identity and Access Management has continued to assume greater prominence in light of the cyberattack on Sony Pictures. This massive security breach was determined to have occurred in part because a highly privileged admin account was compromised and it is this kind of problem that IAM / IAG helps addresses by ensuring that users have access only to the systems and information they need to perform their work. The governance component provides visibility and control for management of threats and risks posed by inappropriate access privileges by implementing attestation, separation of duties, audit tracking and reporting.
“We are pleased that the analyst community, including KuppingerCole continues to take note of the strength of the EmpowerID platform as an overall solution for comprehensive IAM / IAG challenges,” said Patrick Parker, CEO of EmpowerID, “because it makes clear that our integrated approach provides substantial benefits for clients who want a faster, better and more cost-effective solution to the pressing problems of Identity Management.”
The KuppingerCole report concludes, “In contrast to many other vendors, EmpowerID not only delivers a real suite of products but also covers most functional areas of IAM/IAG."
