Dell's Quest Software Placed in a Challengers Position in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Identity Access and Governance
ALISO VIEJO, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Dell Software today announced that Quest Software (News - Alert), now a
part of Dell, is positioned in the Challengers quadrant of the 2012
Gartner Magic Quadrant for Identity and Access Governance (IAG). Dell
Quest's position in the quadrant is based on its completeness of vision
and ability to execute for Identity and Access Management and the
current IAG functionality incorporated into Quest®
One Identity Manager, part of Quest
One Identity Solutions.
The report, issued on December 17, 2012, evaluates a vendor's ability to
execute, including the ability to enable IT providers' and business
users' performance to be competitive, efficient and effective, and to
positively impact revenue, retention and reputation. Vendors also are
judged on their ability and success in capitalizing on their vision.
Quest One Identity Solutions enable access governance, privileged
account management, identity administration, and user activity
monitoring - today's most pressing identity and access challenges.
"We believe our position in the Challengers quadrant underscores our
evolving mission to provide our customers with exceptional quality, user
experience, and service levels, as well as low cost of ownership and
business value," said John Milburn, vice president and general manager,
Quest Identity and Access Management, Dell (News - Alert) Software. "We will continue
to innovate while we execute on our vision to deliver solutions that
will change the face of the security industry."
The new IAG market reflects industry changes brought about by the nexus
of forces - cloud, mobile, social and information. According to Gartner (News - Alert),
IAG as a discipline within enterprises continues to evolve. The
competitive differentiator for Quest One Identity Solutions is that it
empowers the business ownr (not IT) to govern employees' access to
business-critical information by providing the right users with the
right access for just the right amount of time, while ensuring the
organization continues to operate in a secure and compliant manner.
Quest Software continues to innovate in the creation of a compelling
Identity and Access Management-related product set, and has
capitalized on its vision with a significant number of customer wins.
Quest One Identity Manager protects the organization by giving access
control to the business owners who actually know who should have
access to which sensitive data.
In addition to helping data owners (not IT) determine who should have
access, Quest One Identity Manager automates the request-and-approval
workflow, keeping the sensitive data secure, while reducing the burden
Quest One Identity Manager enables organizations to integrate with
other Quest One solutions, including Quest ActiveRoles®
Server, Quest Password
Manager, Quest Webthority,
Quest Defender® and Quest
One Quick Connect, to add additional IAM functionality.
