Leadership Compass: Access Governance - 70735

Report Details

Access Governance is as of now the fastest growing market segment in the broader IAM (Identity and Access Management) market. Some vendors also use the term IAG (Identity and Access Governance). Another recent term is Access Intelligence (or Identity and Access Intelligence). While a few vendors try to establish this as a new market segment, we understand enhanced analytical capabilities just as an important feature within Access Governance.

Few years ago, there have been only a handful of vendors in the Access Governance market. The large players acquired some vendors, others entered the market, and some of the Identity Provisioning vendors developed Access Governance capabilities by themselves. Thus, there are close to 20 vendors in this market segment as of now.

This Leadership Compass provides an overview and analysis of the Access Governance market segment. Access Governance nowadays goes well beyond access recertification, role management and analytics. Strong capabilities for access request management, access analytics, and advanced direct or indirect capabilities of provisioning changes back are mandatory features. In addition, access risk management, enhanced data governance for non-structured data, or improved integration with for instance Privilege Management tools or User Activity Monitoring solutions are increasingly common. The Access Governance market is changing and our rating not only focuses on the traditional capabilities but also takes into account what we expect to become the new key features.

It shows that there are several established vendors with mature solutions, but also some very interesting smaller or regional vendors with a good potential for growth and for delivering what customers require.

Picking solutions always requires a thorough analysis of customer requirements and a comparison with product features. Leadership does not always mean that a product is the best fit for a particular customer and his requirements. However, this Leadership Compass will help identifying those vendors customers should have a closer look at.
