Oracle named leader in identity, access management

Oracle has been named a Leader in Forrester Research’s recent report, “The Forrester Wave™: Identity and Access Management, Q4 2009.”

Forrester evaluated nine vendors against 79 criteria, categorized into three main groups: current offering, strategy and market presence. Oracle received the highest scores in the current offering and strategy categories for its Oracle Identity and Access Management [IAM] Suite.

Forrester notes in the report that “Identity and access management (IAM) tools help organizations automate many mundane identity tasks and improve compliance reporting, processes that companies need to focus attention on as the economy recovers.”

Oracle Identity Management provides a unified, integrated security platform designed to manage user identities and entitlements, provision resources to users, secure access to corporate resources, and support extensive audits across enterprise applications.

According to Forrester, “Oracle is the only vendor that has: an adopted entitlement enforcement product (Oracle Entitlements Server [OES]), built on the BEA AquaLogic Enterprise Security solution; an in-house adaptive access management product (Oracle Adaptive Access Manager), integrated with enterprise role management and mining; and an application-centric identity management strategy. Oracle demonstrated the highest adherence to the scenarios evaluated.”

“In today’s dynamic economic environment, organizations are continuing to focus on streamlining identity and access management to save time and money and ensure the highest levels of security,”  Amit Jasuja, vice president, Oracle Identity Management, said.

Jasuja further said: “We believe Forrester’s positioning of Oracle as a market leader for both identity and access management and user provisioning is a reflection of the success of Oracle’s complete, integrated and hot_pluggable identity management strategy and our ongoing success helping organizations implement world-class security.”
