Ovum, the global IT research and analyst organisation, has rated Hitachi ID Systems as a leader in the privileged access management market in their recent in-depth report, “Decision Matrix: Selecting a Privileged Identity Management Solution, 2016-2016”.
Hitachi’s Privileged Access Manager (PAM) offering is recognised as providing unlimited scalability in comparison to other similar products. Gideo Shoham, CEO at Hitachi ID Systems said: “We are pleased to be recognised by Ovum for our highly scalable, functionally rich and easily managed privileged access management solution. Our PAM solution effectively addresses the risks associated with the cloud-based and mobile security as well as internal enterprise security needs.”
Andrew Kellett, Principal Analyst, Security, in the Ovum report, concluded: “Privileged identity management technology is needed to ensure that privileged access to business systems is properly monitored and controlled in order to minimise potential damage to the business and its reputation, by a security breach.” He added, “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 centres. Hitachi ID’s product addresses all these use cases.”
