WESTBOROUGH, Mass.--(Courion Corporation, the leader in risk-driven identity and access management (IAM), today announced it has been named a leader in product, innovation and overall strength in the “KuppingerCole Leadership Compass” on access governance.)--
“Courion definitely is amongst the vendors that should be taken into account when looking for an Access Governance solution. They show innovativeness and provide a feature-rich, established and well-integrated platform”
Access governance has become critical as chief information security officers (CISOs) increasingly focus their attention on reducing risk through proactive verification of business users’ access rights. Its importance is growing along with the rising frequency of data breaches around the world. For CISOs researching access governance solutions, the survey recognizes providers that merit consideration.
Released today, the Leadership Compass is authored by Martin Kuppinger, founder and principal analyst at KuppingerCole, a leading global analyst firm for identity-focused information security. The firm evaluated 18 access governance products for the report.
“Courion definitely is amongst the vendors that should be taken into account when looking for an Access Governance solution. They show innovativeness and provide a feature-rich, established and well-integrated platform,” says Kuppinger.
KuppingerCole notes that access governance is the fastest-growing segment in the IAM market. Access governance is gaining traction because of the need for organizations to ensure the right people have the right access to the right resources and to demonstrate that they are doing the right things with this access.
“In today’s era of open access, organizations are subject to the growing burden of trying to protect information across a broad variety of application platforms while simultaneously demonstrating compliance with a growing range of industry and regulatory requirements,” said Kurt Johnson, vice president of strategy and corporate development at Courion. “The Courion Suite automates access certification and compliance, enabling business managers to certify access to enterprise applications and take remedial action if necessary, as well as providing industry-leading access intelligence capabilities that indicate where potential access risk exists. We’re pleased KuppingerCole highlights this capability in their latest Leadership Compass and points to Courion’s strengths in access governance, access intelligence and the IAM market overall.”
