Privileged Access Management Deals Dominate First Quarter of 2013

Hitachi ID Systems, an analyst-recognized identity and access management leader, has closed the first quarter of 2013 with record sales and sales pipeline for its Privileged Access Manager [PAM] product. Global banking institutions and large companies around the world have purchased Hitachi ID privileged access management systems, some by replacing a leading privileged access management provider.

“Enterprises around the world are approaching us for a quickly-deployed, cost-effective, reliable and efficient privileged access solution,” says Gideon Shoham, CEO. “Often, we are selected to replace competing systems that were unable to meet our fast deployment pace, much lower total cost of ownership and the quality of our services.” “In several cases, Hitachi ID completed a full production-ready pilot in 2-3 months, compared to several years' invested in testing and piloting the leading competitive product,” noted Shoham.

As Andrew Kellett, Principal Analyst, Security with OVUM Group stated earlier in 2013, “(Hitachi ID)'s products, including Hitachi ID Privileged Access Manager, address critical needs in the market for implementing fully audit-able secure access to privileged accounts.”
