Evidian, Bull's subsidiary, is positioned by Gartner,Inc. in its first-ever report entitled "Magic Quadrant for Identity Governance and Administration" based on its evaluation of Evidian's Identity & Access Manager solution.
Identity governance and administration (IGA) is an area within cybersecurity that associates processes, technologies and strategies of digital identity management and their specified use to allow users to access their data.
Gartner's first-ever IGA Magic Quadrant, published December 30, 2013, is an evaluation based on a weighted assessment of a vendor's products. It provides specific guidance for users who are deploying, or have deployed, products or services.
Evidian's award-winning Identity & Access Manager is an IGA solution designed to be business-process-oriented, integrated and modular. The rights of users are deduced from their roles in the organization in accordance to the security policy.
Philippe Duluc, director of Bull's cybersecurity offer says "In our opinion, this assessment underlines our strategic commitment to provide continuous improvements to our customers in the area of identity governance in order to answer their security needs".
"Evidian's conviction is that identity administration brings full value when it is integrated with access management. This enables organizations to easily achieve their security governance goals" says Hassan Maad, Evidian COO.
