In this session, Martin Kuppinger and Rob Newby will provide an overview of the Privilege Management market based on the current KuppingerCole Leadership Compass.

This Leadership Compass session will providean overview and analysis of the Privilege Management market segment, sometimes referred to as Privileged Identity Management, Privileged Account Management, etc1. Technologies typically support Privilege Management as a password vault approach, with some form of proxy/gateway to record RDP Sessions, while logging key strokes for SSH based connections. This approach is regarded as standard, but we are now seeing many vendors being more innovative due to the migration towards the new platforms (Cloud, Mobile, Social) which requires privilege management for many more environments.

The entire market segment is still evolving rapidly and we expect to see more changes within the next few years. However, given the surging demand of businesses, organizations now have to start with implementing a standard infrastructure for Privilege Management. This KuppingerCole Leadership Compass provides an overview of the leading vendors in that market segment.

Besides the established vendors providing complete Privilege Management product portfolios, there are some smaller vendors with interesting offerings as well as specialists focusing purely on individual parts of the Privilege Management market.
