September 1, 2009, Calgary, Canada -- Hitachi ID Systems, a leading provider of identity and access management (IdM) solutions, is pleased to announce the general availability of version 6.1 of its identity management suite.
“Hitachi ID Identity and Access Management Suite 6.1 is a major milestone in our program to deliver a high-value, low-cost solution to customers. It introduces strategic features such as RBAC enforcement, innovative technologies such as real-time user provisioning and significantly improved usability,” says Idan Shoham, Hitachi ID Systems' CTO. “The new version reduces deployment time by avoiding the need to deploy complex business logic on systems of record.”
The new release builds on the architecture first introduced in Hitachi ID Identity and Access Management Suite 6.0 and adds significant new features. Notable among them are:
“Identity management needs to deliver significantly more for the enterprise than a few years ago,” says Felix Gaehtgens, senior analyst, Kuppinger Cole + Partner. “Instead of managing just 'identities', entitlements need to be managed and attested regularly. Under pressure to deliver more for less, IT departments look at automation and self-service.”
“Hitachi ID Systems has rewritten their product from a password management solution into a flexible platform for identity management. They can now take advantage of this by adding modular features and drive innovation of their products,” he added.
Hitachi ID Identity and Access Management Suite includes:
