Vendor Report: Courion

Report Details

Courion provides identity management solutions since 1996 and is well established in North America. The company has traditionally not had a focus on Europe, even though several large accounts in Switzerland and the UK are using Courion’s products. This is about to change: the company has prioritized Europe for 2010 and is aggressively expanding there through new hires and partnerships.

Courion’s flagship products are its identity access management suite that also includes many GRC (governance, risk-management and compliance) features. In fact, Courion’s product strategy is epitomized through its aptly named “Access Assurance” suite of products. Having organically grown its product portfolio from a traditional provisioning solution to a fully fledged access governance solution, Courion has a very homogenous, well integrated set of products. This is in stark contrast to the “mix and match” of some other vendors who have acquired multiple companies with their respective products and have sometimes struggled to integrate those products into a homogenous platform.

While speaking with Courion’s customers and the company itself, we have noticed a very loyal customer base, and a flexible product platform that is fairly simple to deploy – in comparison to other competing products. Courion is working with Integrators and partners, but also offers implementation services as part of its professional services arm. In this perspective, Courion differs from the norm by offering fixed-price implementations for its provisioning and role management products.
