Courion, a leading provider of intelligent identity and access management (IAM) solutions, announced that KuppingerCole, a global analyst company headquartered in Europe focusing on information security and IAM, has recognized Courion as a leader in product features, innovation and market reach in its 2014 Leadership Compass for Identity Provisioning. The report, authored by Martin Kuppinger, founder and principal analyst at KuppingerCole, provides an overview and analysis of all relevant providers of identity provisioning products.
The management summary of the Leadership Compass states that identity provisioning, which includes provisioning identities and access entitlements to target systems and the automation of these tasks, is still one of the core segments of IAM. The Courion Access Assurance Suite, which includes provisioning and advanced access governance and access risk management capabilities, was evaluated by KuppingerCole. AccountCourier for identity provisioning and PasswordCourier for self-service password management, solutions within the integrated suite, are the focus for the report.
“Courion’s provisioning capabilities are strong, and the company offers a significant number of connectors which cover complex target platforms. The company provides exceptionally strong integration with other elements of IT infrastructures such as SIEM platforms,” said Martin Kuppinger. “Courion has a very strong product offering with a broad feature set. Given that the suite is modular, this allows customers to rely on some or all portions of this feature set as needed.”
Courion boasts an 18-year heritage as a market leader in identity and access management, and the fact that it was identified as a Leader in the Leadership Compass for Identity Provisioning by KuppingerCole follows the company’s December 2013 recognition as a leader by Gartner in the Magic Quadrant for Identity Governance and Administration.
“As a pioneer and leader in identity and access management, we believe provisioning is a critical component to IAM,” said Kurt Johnson, vice president of strategy and corporate development at Courion. “Courion was the first to offer integrated provisioning and governance, and has extended its suite capabilities with the addition of continuous monitoring and intelligence capabilities to provide a truly intelligent IAM solution.”
The Courion Access Assurance Suite delivers faster time-to-value than other leading IAM solutions. The suite is automated and configurable for rapid implementation based on the best practices of more than 600 successful customers. The suite also includes the award-winning identity and access intelligence solution, Access Insight™, which constantly analyzes IAM and other security data from access governance, user provisioning and password management systems, as well as from external sources, such as SIEM and DLP systems, to identify and quantify real-time access risks to vital information such as intellectual property, medical records, personally identifiable information and customer data.
With deep experience and more than 600 customers managing over 10 million identities, Courion is the market leader in Identity and Access Management (IAM), from provisioning to governance to Identity and Access Intelligence (IAI). Courion provides insight from analyzing the big data generated from an organization’s identity and access relationships so users can efficiently and accurately provision, identify and minimize risks, and maintain continuous compliance. As a result, IT costs are reduced and audits expedited. With Courion, you can confidently provide open and compliant access to all while also protecting critical company data and assets from unauthorized access.

In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.
