IBM, a Leader Again in the 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant for IGA

IBM Security is again named a Leader in the newly published “Gartner Magic Quadrant for Identity Governance and Administration (IGA).” Not only does this mark four consecutive years that IBM has been evaluated as a Leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for IGA, but IBM believes it demonstrates a significant improvement within the leadership quadrant itself.

IGA Leaders deliver a comprehensive tool set for Identity Governance and Administration needs. Leaders have successfully built a significant installed customer base and revenue stream, and they have high viability ratings and robust revenue growth. Vendors evaluated as Leaders show evidence of superior vision and execution, and typically demonstrate customer satisfaction with IGA capabilities and related service support.

IBM Security Identity Governance & Intelligence (IGI)

IBM Security’s core IGA product is Identity Governance and Intelligence (IGI). IGI ensures that the right people have the right access necessary for their jobs. With IGI you can automate user life cycles, streamline compliance processes and improve the organization’s risk management posture.

A key strength of IGI is its business activity-based approach to model segregation-of-duties (SOD) violations, rather than relying on unmanageable role-to-role comparison. This approach enables business managers to make appropriate access decisions and allow risk and compliance managers to quickly identify SOD violations.

In addition, IGI is natively integrated with ServiceNow, a popular service management tool. This integration provides users of both platforms with one location for all requests. A one-stop shop for all IT-related requests empowers the business with efficiency and provides a very positive digital experience.
