Wiesbaden, October 23rd, 2014 – KuppingerCole Analysts announce the release of a series of new reports on information security issues. These reports are now available for download at http://www.kuppingercole.com/reports.

New KuppingerCole Leadership Compasses “Cloud User and Access Management” and “Cloud IAM/IAG”

Wiesbaden, July 23rd, 2014 – Overview and decision-making tool in one: the new KuppingerCole Leadership Compasses Cloud User and Access Management and Cloud IAM/IAG offer a comprehensive overview of the Cloud Access Management solution providers in the market. KuppingerCole decided to split the Cloud IAM market overview into two separate documents due to the significant differences between these two groups of offerings. As of now, there is no homogeneous Cloud IAM market. KuppingerCole expects seeing convergence over the next years.

The Leadership Compasses show that the Cloud IAM market has evolved from products that focus on providing Single Sign-On to various cloud services as their major feature and business benefit. This is changing, with two distinct evolutions of more advanced services forming the market: cloud-based IAM/IAG (Identity Access Management/Governance) as an alternative to on-premise IAM suites, and cloud IAM solutions that bring a combination of directory services, user management, and access management to the cloud. The latter are titled “Cloud User and Access Management” by KuppingerCole.

New KuppingerCole Leadership Compass Identity Provisioning

Wiesbaden, April 15th, 2014 – Overview and decision-making tool in one: the KuppingerCole Leadership Compass Identity Provisioning offers a comprehensive overview of the many Identity Provisioning solution providers in the market.

The Leadership Compass shows that Identity Provisioning is still one of the core segments of the overall IAM 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. Identity Provisioning is about automating these tasks, based on defined processes for creating, updating, and deleting identity-related information in the target systems. Despite the emergence of Access Governance solutions that focus on Access Request Management, Access Recertification, or SoD (Segregation of Duties) management and enforcement, Identity Provisioning remains a core capability of IAM infrastructures.

Wiesbaden, April 9th, 2014 – Overview and decision-making tool in one: the KuppingerCole Leadership Compass Enterprise Key and Certificate Management offers a comprehensive overview of the many Enterprise Key and Certificate Management solution providers in the market.

The Leadership Compass shows that Enterprise Key and Certificate Management (EKCM) is made up of two niche markets that are converging. This process still continues, and as with all major change of IT market segments, is driven by customer requirements. These customer requirements are driven by security and compliance needs. Up until recent times, compliance has been the bigger driver, but increasingly in the days of Cloud and mobile technology security of data in storage; data in the hands of others that is, security requirements have been brought to the fore.

Press Release: Article on „ Identity Management for the cloud – taking the next step” from Martin Kuppinger available

Duesseldorf March, 31st, 2010 - Martin Kuppinger, co-founder and Principal Analyst at Kuppinger Cole, has written an article on the topic of „Identity Management for the Cloud“ in which he explores the reasons why companies and organizations must ask themselves if their Identity and Access Management (IAM) systems are capable of handling not just external users, but external ones as well: suppliers, partners and above all customers. Such comprehensive systems will increasingly become necessary as parts of corporate IT, especially services and data, become cloud-born. Here, security issues such as access governance and IT risk and compliance will dictate coming trends. In his article, Mr. Kuppinger gives an overview and suggests solution strategies that will enable companies and organizations to face the future of distributed IT with confidence.

Press Release: GRC Reference Architecture

New Overview Report from Kuppinger Cole available

Duesseldorf October, 14th, 2009 - Governance, Risk & Compliance - these three terms, in short "GRC" are pretty widely used in these days. Unfortunately, there is great confusion in how this term is used. The reason for this confusion is with high probability the fact that it allows to sell pretty easily all kind of technology under the umbrella of "Risk" and "Compliance" solutions.

The new report "A GRC Reference Architecture" aims to clarify the term GRC by defining a reference architecture, what exactly should be part of a GRC framework and how the different parts interact. It looks at GRC from a company-wide point of view, assembling all activities that have a certain internal control nature, yet focused on cost effectiveness and overall capability building.
