“It’s our job to simplify the process of evaluating enterprise technology solutions.”
The business world has changed dramatically in the last decade. Many organizations are now managing employee and consumer identity at a scale that seemed unimaginable ten years ago. Today, organizations of all sizes are finding that their good old-fashioned manual IAM processes are insufficiently automated, unscalable, and frankly, insecure.
Cue the process of seeking out, evaluating, choosing, purchasing, and implementing an IAM solution. But there’s no such thing as one-size-fits-all when it comes to identity management. Solutions come in a variety of flavors—Identity and Access Governance (IGA), Privileged Access Management (PAM), Identity as a Service (IDaaS)— each with a particular set of capabilities, strengths, and drawbacks. Choosing the right solution and vendor for you is a complicated process—one that requires in-depth research and often comes down to more than just the solutions and its technical capabilities.
Here at Solutions Review, it’s our job to help simplify that process. To that end, we’ve created a variety of resources and articles to speed the evaluation of enterprise technology solutions. In our Identity Management Buyer’s Guide, first introduced in 2013 and now nearing its fourth iteration, we offer readers a full IAM market overview. This includes company and product profiles and best use cases for the top 28 vendors, ten questions for prospective IAM buyers, and a full-length glossary of the top IAM terms and acronyms.
Today, the Solutions Review team is happy to introduce another buyer’s resource to simplify the vendor selection process: The 2017 Identity Management Vendor Map.
Aimed at simplifying the time-consuming vendor selection and evaluation process, this resource breaks down how to choose the right identity management solution for your needs, and offers an at-a-glance reference guide for the top 20 IAM players, the solutions they provide, and the markets they address.
IAM vendors covered in the 2017 Identity Management Vendor Map include Bitium, CA Technologies, Centrify, Core Security, Crossmatch.CyberArk, IBM, Identity Automation, Microsoft, NetIQ, Okta, OneLogin, Oracle, Ping Identity, Quest, RSA, SailPoint, Saviynt, Simeio Solutions, and SecureAuth.
If you’re in the beginning process of buying your first Identity Management solution, or if you’re looking for something a little different than what you already have, we hope this is the perfect resource to get you started on the decision-making process.
You can download the 2017 Identity Management Vendor Map in full here, and the IAM Buyer’s Guide here.
We’ve always got something new cooking over here, so keep your eyes open for the forthcoming 2017 Buyer’s Guide, glossary, and more, coming soon.
