NetIQ has announced that it has been positioned as a “Leader” by Gartner, Inc, in the 2012 Magic Quadrant for User Administration and Provisioning based on evaluation of NetIQ Identity Manager and NetIQ Access Governance Suite.
The Gartner 2012 Magic Quadrant for User Administration and Provisioning cites increased need and attention to identity and access governance (IAG) processes. IAG solutions yield much needed analytics that businesses stakeholders require to inform audit and compliance, forensic investigations, risk assessment and other enterprise functions. According to Gartner, “The feature lines between User Administration and Provisioning [UAP] and IAG have essentially disappeared as IAG tools assume significant UAP capability, and as large-scale UAP vendors integrate IAG features into their platforms.”
“We are honoured to be cited as a Leader in the 2012 User Administration and Provisioning Magic Quadrant,” said Dipto Chakravarty, vice president, Product Management at NetIQ. “We feel this placement is a testament to our organisation’s ongoing commitment to customers and partners, and their need to address the critical demands for access to corporate applications and data in light of mega IT trends – cloud, mobility and social identity – coupled with the complexity those trends introduce to both IT and the business.”
“To truly protect information assets from security threats and breaches, enforce corporate policy and meet compliance requirements, organisations must continue to innovate on their approach to ‘identity management’ by making it ubiquitous to their infrastructure,” commented Chakravarty. “User provisioning and administration provides the foundation. However, given today’s governance and compliance demands, IAG is a required tool for business stakeholders looking to control access to applications and data through strong yet flexible controls across the enterprise whose boundary continues to expand beyond physical to virtual to cloud environments.”
