Avatier on Display at Gartner Identity and Access Management

The identity and access management innovation leader.

In the iconic film, “Wall Street”, multi-billionaire Gordon Gekko reveals that, “The most valuable commodity I know of, is information”. If information is the most valuable commodity in business then the most important challenge facing an organization is identity and access management — the management of how information is accessed.

Companies looking to manage access to information with the latest in identity, access and risk management solutions can find them on display at Gartner’s annual Security & Risk Management Summit, which opened this week in the D.C. suburbs.

Avatier, the most innovative identity and access management solutions company in the world, is among those at the Gartner show this week and at Booth #75 the company is providing an early look at its two new, revolutionary identity, access and management solutions:

  • Avatier Group Requester: A new approach for self service group management, Avatier allows business users to request access to network groups and email distribution lists. Group Requester improves security through rule based group management, which limits group sprawl through group expiration dates. For more information please visit http://www.grouprequester.com
  • Avatier Identity Enforcer: The world’s first ITIL service catalog with integrated online web store that allows users to order IT services and assets. It is 100% integrated into our workflow-enabled user provisioning system, which enables application access upon approval. For more information please visit http://www.identityenforcer.com

These products, set for launch later this year, are the latest of Avatier’s innovative identity and access management solutions, which are designed to change the way the industry thinks about and solves the business operational problems and IT cyber security risks with identity access management and access compliance management.
