Our customers know we can meet all functional requirements as well as rapid deployment, low total cost of ownership and exceptional customer support.”

Hitachi ID was invited to participate in the RFP process and ultimately was selected over the dominant privileged identity vendor in the market. Hitachi ID’s Hitachi ID Privileged Access Manager (PAM ™) offers major advantages over all other vendors, including a complete set of its own agents, workflow engine and a broad identity management infrastructure.
