Hitachi ID Systems recently was named a leader in the privileged access management market by global IT research and analyst firm Ovum.
In their recent “Decision Matrix: Selecting a Privileged Identity Management Solution, 2015-2016”, Ovum provides an in-depth comparative view of the leading Privileged Identity Management solutions.
“Privileged identity management technology is needed to ensure that privileged access to business systems is properly monitored and controlled in order to minimize potential damage to the business and its reputation, by a security breach,” wrote Andrew Kellett, Principal Analyst, Security, in the Ovum report. “There is an increasing need for technology to manage privileged access for humans such as system administrators, but also for machine-to-machine (M2M) communications, the Internet of Things (IoT) and inter-processes within data centers. Hitachi ID’s product addresses all these use cases.”
Hitachi ID’s Privileged Access Manager (PAM) product was cited in the report as being available since 2005. Ovum also states that PAM’s key unique strength is its unlimited scalability when compared to other similar products.
“We are pleased to be recognized by Ovum for our highly scalable, functionally rich and easily managed privileged access management solution,” says Gideon Shoham, Hitachi ID Systems CEO. “Our PAM solution effectively addresses the risks associated with the cloud-based and mobile security as well as internal enterprise security needs.”
