KuppingerCole's Leadership Compass Identity Provisioning Report Identifies EmpowerID as an Innovation, Product and Overall Leader
DUBLIN, Ohio, May 1, 2014 /CNW/ - EmpowerID was just named an Innovation Leader, a Product Leader and an Overall Leader in KuppingerCole's Leadership Compass Identity Provisioning report, a decision-making tool which provides a comprehensive overview of the many Identity Provisioning solution providers in the market.
"Identity Provisioning is about provisioning identities and access entitlements to target systems. This includes creating and managing accounts in such connected target systems and associating the accounts with groups, roles, and other types of administrative entities to enable entitlements and authorizations in the target systems," reports KuppingerCole, a global analyst company headquartered in Europe focusing on Information Security and Identity and Access Management (IAM).
"Product Leaders" are characterized by outstanding products that significantly exceed the expectations in this market segment, "Innovation Leaders" provide innovations and leading-edge product ideas that are expected to bring new possibilities to this market segment and "Overall Leaders" combine strengths in all three categories based on the strengths of the product they offer, their market presence and the vendor´s product innovations.
"We are excited and proud to have received this recognition from KuppingerCole," said Patrick Parker, CEO of EmpowerID, "this affirms the value that EmpowerID brings to organizations that are looking for a sophisticated approach to their IAM needs that is simpler and faster to implement."
The KuppingerCole report notes that EmpowerID's unique workflow-based platform "allows for great flexibility, while the product also delivers a broad set of out-of-the-box features" and "the product delivers a very broad feature set for Identity and Access Management, going well beyond Identity Provisioning but with tight integration to these core features. That includes Dynamic Authorization Management capabilities and integrated Identity Federation features. Overall, support for new technologies and standards like OAuth, OpenID, RESTful APIs, or integrated STS (Secure Token Service) features is broad. However, the product also delivers a broad functionality for basic Identity Provisioning requirements. We have seen a lot of progress in that area with an increased number of connectors and a very large number of out-of-the-box workflows that allow for rapid deployments. Overall, EmpowerID is a very interesting and innovative solution."
