Product Report: Evidian Identity & Access Manager 9 - 70130

Report Details

Corporate IT environments are growing more complex every day. Not only do users within and outside the organization need to access sensitive information, they need to do so on the road and from a wide range of different devices. Identity & Access Management (IAM) is increasingly being recognized as the key to both security and business success for enterprises around the world.

Evidian, a subsidiary of Groupe Bull created in July 2000 as an Independent Software Vendor company, is a well-established player in this field. Its signature product, Evidian Identity and Access Manager, enjoys a good reputation for allowing IT to consolidate identity sources across multiple sites or organizations into a single view, thereby allowing IT departments to centrally control employee, supplier or business partner access to applications and information. Unlike many other vendors, Evidian focuses on the SMB part of that market, mainly on organizations with between 500 and 10,000 users. However, a significant number of Evidian’s corporate customers run much larger installations.

The latest release, Identity & Access Manager 9, is the successor to Evidian’s existing Identity Provi-sioning solution and can leverage them, but works with third-party products as well, adding Access Governance capabilities which automate the assignment of access rights based on roles and facilitate auditing by making it easy to obtain a report of all assigned IT resource access rights. By integrating the product with Evidian’s Single Sign-On and Web Access Management products customers can create a comprehensive solution for all their basic Identity & Assess Management requirements.

The product itself has a long history reaching back to the days of the Bull AccessMaster. However, the product has been redesigned from the ground up to include many innovative features, so it is in fact a new product. However, it is reverse compatible with previous versions and provides an easy migration path. While we appreciate the products capability to support out-of-the-box workflows and rapid deployments (something that is still rather rare among competing provisioning products) we believe Evidian would be wise to include more advanced recertification in future releases.

In KuppingerCole’s estimation, Evidian Identity & Access Manager is well positioned as an integrated solution especially for small and medium-sized businesses. We recommend including this product when evaluating Identity Provisioning and Access Governance products. Evidian Identity & Access Manager is also the logical solution in cases where existing Evidian AccessMaster infrastructures are due for upgrading since it is tightly integrated with this product.
