IBM Security Is a Leader, Again, in the 2016 Gartner Magic Quadrant for IGA

The 2017 report is now available – and IBM is still the leader.

IBM Security is again named a Leader in the newly published “2016 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Identity Governance and Administration.” This is the second consecutive year IBM has been named a Leader in the identity governance and administration (IGA) space.

IBM views identity governance as a fundamental requirement for enterprise security. Security starts by understanding who your users are and what they have access to. This is why every company needs to invest in a leading IGA solution that is part of larger security strategy.

While IBM is honored to be named a Leader by Gartner, we know true success is dependent on helping our clients protect themselves in partnership with IBM Security.

To help clients achieve this goal, IBM recently launched IBM Security Identity Governance and Intelligence (ISIGI), which includes the ability to provision and audit users based on their business needs. IBM is the only identity governance vendor that uses business activities to govern user access. This new approach helps keep your organization secure and reduces the time and effort needed to complete an IT audit.

Moving forward, IBM Security continues to invest heavily in IGA as part of IBM’s goal to become the No. 1 enterprise security vendor.
