Hitachi ID Systems, a leading provider of identity and access management solutions is fast approaching a major commercial milestone. As of June 2011, Hitachi ID solutions have been licensed by well over 900 organizations world-wide, with a combined user count of over 11.9 million.

“This milestone is very significant for Hitachi ID Systems,” notes Gideon Shoham, CEO. “While we continue to see demand for our Password Management software, the strongest growth is actually in our newer solutions: Identity Manager and Privileged Access Manager There is clearly strong interest in the marketplace to address internal controls and regulatory issues, which leads enterprises to secure privileged accounts, enforce SoD policies, provision users with roles and automate access certification processes.”

Shoham adds, “Our solutions are selling well because they address clear business needs - onboarding, deactivation and access management - at a reasonable cost. Customers only have to buy a single product - for example, Identity Manager - and they get all the required technology to deploy a working solution - workflow, reports, auto-discovery, connectors, request and approval forms and so on. This makes the solution much simpler than offerings from some of our larger competitors.”
