Vendor Report: Novell - Identity and Security

Report Details

Novell has a long history in the fields of identity and security. The company was one of the pioneers in network operating systems and the corresponding directory and security services. Over the year, it has continued to develop and expand its portfolio. Today, identity and security remain at the heart of Novell’s business model, along with products for data centers based on Novell Suse Linux as well as products for communication, security and device management collectively labeled “end user computing”.

Over the past years, Novell has been following a clearly fined path towards improving and marketing its product lineup. It is now in an excellent position to be perceived as a leading supplier of integrated solutions for managing heterogeneous IT infrastructures all the way from the data center to the desktop. In our estimation, however, its greatest strengths lie in the realm of identity and security. In addition, Novell has proven to be a solidly financed enterprise with lots of liquidity – a fact that is frequently overlooked by outsiders.

Novell’s technical prowess paired with a deep understanding of IT GRC make this vendor a prime al-ternative for anyone looking for strong, performing IT infrastructure solutions. Individually, their products are often found to be the most technologically mature in their respective market segments. Therefore, Novell can be considered even in IAM, GRC and IT Sec environments in which Novell eDirectory is currently not being employed. Novel has successfully reduced its former excessive reliance on its in-house eDirectory infrastructure, and their products now work very well within mixed IT environments.

Passwordless for the Masses

Passwordless for the Masses

What an interesting coincidence: I’m writing this just after finishing a webinar where we talked about the latest trends in strong authentication and the ways to eliminate passwords within an enterprise. Well, this could not have been a better time for the latest announcement from Microsoft, introducing Azure Active Directory support for passwordless sign-in using FIDO2 authentication devices. Although most people agree that passwords are no longer an even remotely adequate [...]
