Aveksa’s Global Customers Discuss Key IAM Strategies at 2012 Insights Conferences

Aveksa, Inc., the leading provider of Business-Driven Identity and Access Management solutions, today announced key findings from its recent global customer user conferences in Boston and Amsterdam. The conferences, held in late October, featured numerous Aveksa customer and partner representatives who participated in multi-day sessions and workshops focused on sharing their enterprises’ Identity and Access Management vision, roadmap and requirements, while exchanging ideas and industry best practices.

This year’s Aveksa Insights conferences were held at the Marriott Copley Place Hotel in Boston and the ING Business Center in Amsterdam. The conferences took place over two days at each location and consisted of keynote presentations from leading IT research analysts firms such as Forrester and Kuppinger Cole, customer case studies from multiple Aveksa customers and interactive technical workshops led by Aveksa. Topics included customer success with Business-Driven IAM, Actionable Identity Intelligence, Access Request and Access Fulfillment, among many others. During the conferences, attendees were also given detailed insight into Aveksa’s product vision and roadmap with the opportunity to provide direct feedback to the Aveksa team.

As part of the conferences, attendees of Aveksa Insights were asked to review and prioritize their organizations’ key IAM initiatives for 2013. One clear outcome from the surveys and discussions was that organizations are looking for an automated, centralized, next-generation IAM platform to serve as the foundation for meeting their security, compliance and business goals for the next several years. Key requirements that customers indicated were necessary for this platform include:

  • Best-in-class Identity Management capabilities that support business user-facing activities such as Access Certification, Policy Management, Role Management and Access Request and Approval
  • Integrated support for application and data resources in a unified fashion
  • Ability to achieve closed-loop access changes through a cost-effective access change fulfillment solution
  • An integrated governance, compliance and fulfillment (provisioning) solution
  • Unified support for the hybrid enterprise with an IAM solution that seamlessly handles on-premise, SaaS and mobile applications
  • Integration with the broader security landscape, including pre-built integration with Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solutions, as well as with Data Loss Prevention (DLP) solutions to operationalize IAM as part of key business processes

In addition to these priorities, customers also expressed a strong interest in increasing the scale of their IAM deployments. This reflects a clear trend toward collecting and analyzing extremely large amounts of identity-related data, as well as the need for increasingly sophisticated security intelligence and analytics solutions.

“The 2012 Insights Conferences in Boston and Amsterdam were great forums for our global customers to come together and exchange IAM best practices based on their implementations of Aveksa’s solutions,” said Vick Viren Vaishnavi, President and CEO of Aveksa. “The polling we did at both conferences provided us with valuable insight into the prioritized initiatives for these enterprises for 2013 and beyond. Given how much we value feedback from our customers, it was very rewarding to see how closely those initiatives mapped to the key product priorities we have targeted for the next 12 months.”
