Magic Quadrant for Identity and Access Governance
According to the report, Magic Quadrant for Identity and Access Governance*, “Identity and access governance (IAG) is defined as (1) the process of requesting, approving, certifying and auditing access to applications, data and other IT services; and (2) the process of delivering security and business intelligence (BI) on how identities are created, managed and used for access. Software tools and services that provide support for most or all of this process are known as IAG products.
“Today, IAG is the fastest-growing sector of identity and access management (IAM). Gartner estimates that 2011 IAG product sales alone ranged from $200 million to $300 million, with estimated growth rates in 2012 continuing to exceed 35 percent to 40 percent for most IAG vendors.”
CA Identity Governance was evaluated for this report.
Magic Quadrant for User Administration/Provisioning
The report, Magic Quadrant for User Administration / Provisioning**, states, “User administration and provisioning (UAP) is a combination of administration and analytics technologies that provide an effective foundation for authentication and authorization in the enterprise. Characterized in this way, user administration is a fundamental part of an overall IAM technology strategy and program.
“UAP solutions address enterprise requirements to create, modify, disable and delete identity objects across heterogeneous IT system infrastructures, including OSs, databases, directories, business applications and security systems.”
Gartner analysts evaluated the following CA IAM solutions for this report: CA Identity Manager, CA Identity Governance and CA User Activity Reporting.
According to this report, “By 2016, user administration/provisioning and identity and access governance products will converge, creating a new market for advanced identity analytics.
“In recognition of this trend, and the interdependence between provisioning and IAG functions and processes, Gartner plans to create a combined UAP and IAG Magic Quadrant beginning in 2013.”
