Vendor Report: Courion - 70353

Report Details

Courion provides identity management solutions since 1996, is well established in North America,. Although the company has traditionally not had a strong presence in Europe, several large accounts in Germany, Switzerland and the UK are using Courion’s products. This is about to change: the company has prioritized Europe for the next years and plans to 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 and their new “Access Risk Management” approach and solutions.
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. With its new Access Risk Management Suite, Courion adds a new layer on top, moving even closer to the business than with the Access Assurance product unveiled in 2010.

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 several 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.
