Product Report: Quest One Identity Manager 5 - 70133

Report Details

In 2010, Quest Software acquired the German software vendor Völcker Informatik AG, based in Berlin. Völcker had established itself in recent years as a provider of technically innovative solutions and a vendor to be reckoned with in the field of Identity and Access Management (IAM). In the process, the company has become highly visible in the German-speaking market and has succeeded in creating a substantial customer base including many large and well-known corporations, particularly in the German-speaking market. However, Völcker has no longer been a niche player, but instead enjoyed a solid reputation as an established vendor in the IAM market space. The product which has been renamed Quest One Identity Manager – formerly known name as  ActiveEntry – is a core piece of Quest’s IAM offerings now, called Quest One. In contrast to Völcker, Quest has the marketing and sales reach to address customers worldwide. Thus Quest One Identity Manager counts to the leading products in the IAM market not only technology-wise but also from its market relevance.

The product's strengths lie, among other things, in a very sophisticated identity data model for the realization of automated processes and workflows, and in an outstanding approach for auditing and testing for contradictions among provisioning rules. Thus, Attestation, Re-certification, and SoD (segregation of duties) are very well supported. Another strength of Quest One Identity Manager lies in its integrated, self-consistent object model, which serves as the central repository for identity and access data across all enterprise where comprehensively and correctly identifies dependencies between different sets of data. This model is the foundation for the product’s flexibility in supporting specific customer requirements.
Quest One Identity Manager’s access request process for business users through an IT-Shop (shopping cart) self-service interfaces form a solid basis and can be adapted further without the need to write code. This is generally true for Quest One Identity Manager as a whole, which requires very little programming effort compared to other provisioning products. In addition, Quest has massively invested in the access request portal and added many wizards to simplify configuration and administration tasks.

Over the past years, Völcker had considerably expanded the number of its technology and implementation partners. In addition, it has increased its visibility outside of German-speaking areas, although the majority of customers continued to hail from Central Europe. Being now a part of Quest, there are many more partners on a worldwide basis. A multitude of unique technical features makes it is definitely advisable to consider Quest One Identity Manager during the selection processes for an Enterprise Provisioning and Access Governance solution.

Privacy & the European Data Protection Regulation

The EU GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), becoming effective May 25, 2018, will have a global impact not only on data privacy, but on the interaction between businesses and their customers and consumers. Organizations must not restrict their GDPR initiatives to technical changes in consent management or PII protection, but need to review how they onboard customers and consumers and how to convince these of giving consent, but also review the amount and purposes of PII they collect. The impact of GDPR on businesses will be far bigger than most currently expect. [...]
