Omada Acknowledged by Gartner in 2018 Critical Capabilities for Identity Governance and Administration

June 14, 2018

Omada, the European leader in identity and access management software, is acknowledged in the annual Critical Capabilities for Identity Governance and Administration report from Gartner, Inc., the leading provider of research and analysis on the global information technology industry, with the third highest score in two out of four use cases.

Omada is positioned third highest in the Global Enterprise and Governance-Focused use cases and was the fifth highest score in the Automation-Focused use case.

In the report, Gartner notes “Security and risk management leaders responsible for identity and access management should: Determine which IGA capabilities and application integrations are most valuable to the organization, while assessing the deployment risks associated with these elements. Create a roadmap for IGA deployment that prioritizes the high-value, low-risk elements, saving higher-risk elements for later phases — for most organizations, governance-oriented capabilities provide the most value, with less deployment risk than provisioning. Treat IGA deployment as a broadly scoped business process re-engineering project, not merely a technology project. IGA should be approached as a platform for adopting best practices and redesigning processes for the management of user access.”

We see our positioning in the Global Enterprise use case as a result of our solution’s flexible configurability, in combination with strong out of the box features, which addresses a wide range of use cases,” says Founder of Omada, Morten Boel Sigurdsson. “Our standardized process framework gathers our many best practices into a user-friendly package, providing the foundation for an efficient and easy to accelerate IAM project. We experience an increasing demand for identity and access management to support organizations’ cloud first strategies, where security, compliance, and efficiency becomes even more vital, as well as increasing demand for identity and access management delivered as-a-service, whereby our full enterprise grade solution is filling an important need in the market. Our rapid growth and partnerships with the likes of Microsoft and Deloitte, enable us to offer our product across various delivery models, thereby meeting the demands of the modern organization”.
