Forrester Names Symplified a Wave Leader in Enterprise Cloud IAM

We’re pleased to report that Symplified was named a leader in Forrester Research Inc.’s Q3 2012 “Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Cloud Identity and Access Management” report. Ranked first in Access to SaaS and On-premise Applications, we also topped the charts in User Repositories, Top Implementation Partners, and Overall Strategy.

Forrester analysts Andras Cser and Eve Maler wrote, “Today’s economic environment has forced security and risk professionals to consider SaaS alternatives to on-premises monolithic IAM offerings. Leaders in this market offer SaaS application access control and will continue to have a positive impact by expanding strong authentication, provisioning and attestation capabilities. Symplified provides great access control to SaaS applications. It has its own IP-based solution, which is one of the longest-standing in the cloud IAM market.”

The report goes on to state that Symplified offers good architectural stability through its identity router, which resides behind the customer’s firewall as a software or hardware appliance, or as a cloud connector. As the only hybrid model in the study, Symplified is in a unique position to offer both on-premise and cloud-based IAM functionality. The company’s protocol and endpoint support was also touted.

Forrester points out that stability and a holistic approach that allows vendors to provide quick integration, cost savings, and support for a wide variety of applications sets the leaders apart. This is particularly true as IT departments struggle to do more with less. The best solutions support the rapid adoption of cloud apps, lower capital expenditures, increased regulatory compliance, and advanced fraud detection.

The report’s analysis says that Symplified offers one of the best capabilities for an integrated offering, having demonstrated cloud IAM services that are highly tailored to meet the requirements of cloud-service access control.
