Stockholm, July 1 2014 – Analyst firm KuppingerCole identifies Axiomatics as a leader in two essential assessment categories. Axiomatics is recognized as a Product Leader as well as an Innovation leader in their recent Leadership Compass report on Dynamic Authorization Management.
Earlier this year, Gartner analysts identified Externalized Authorization Management as one of the most crucial fields within Identity & Access Management, predicting that by “2020, 70 percent of enterprises will use ABAC as the dominant mechanism to protect critical assets, up from less than 5 percent today”.
The KuppingerCole analyst firm, specializing in Identity & Access Management (IAM), confirms the importance of dynamic and attribute-based authorization within the IAM market: “Dynamic Authorization Management is arguably the most exciting area in identity and access management today.” This is the opening statement made by KuppingerCole analyst Graham Williamson in the Leadership Compass.
“At Axiomatics we are happy to see that analyst firms recognize the importance of a shift away from static access control techniques towards context-aware and attribute-based solutions of the kind Axiomatics is offering”, says Gerry Gebel, President Axiomatics Americas. “For our customers, a new approach to access control is becoming increasingly crucial to enable information sharing and efficient collaboration across organizational borders and technical platforms. Existing legacy access control models simply do not meet the requirements of an increasingly dynamic and global business environment.”
The KuppingerCole report approaches Dynamic Authorization Management from different angles to help readers navigate among options and trends in the market. The report concludes that “As a leader in the development of Dynamic Authorization Management, Axiomatics is an independent provider of policy-based, dynamic authorization control software that provides fine-grained access control to a wide range of application solutions.”
Axiomatics is recognized as a Product Leader. In addition, Axiomatics is seen as a leader when it comes to Innovation. “Innovation drives customer satisfaction when they receive new releases that meet their developing requirements. Thus, a look at innovation leaders is important part of analysing product features. Axiomatics leads this sector.”
