June 5, 2013 - Calgary, Alberta, Canada - Hitachi ID Systems is pleased to announce that it has closed a sale and deployed a global, enterprise-wide privileged access management solution for one of the largest banks in Canada.
“What is interesting about this deal is that this bank had already an existing privileged access management solution,” says Gideon Shoham, CEO. “We were able to complete a full and broader production-ready deployment in 2-3 months, compared to several years invested in testing and piloting the leading competitive product.”
Hitachi ID Privileged Access Manager (HiPAM) is preferred by multi-national corporations and other geographically distributed organizations who require minimal down-time. A multi-master, active-active architecture allows organizations to deploy HiPAM nodes across data centers, in different countries and on different continents. In the event of a disaster that incapacitates a single location, access to privileged accounts continues, uninterrupted in every other (surviving) location. In contrast, with competing products, several hours may be required to promote a hot standby server at a disaster recovery site to full functionality, thereby delaying disaster recovery and interrupting IT operations.
Major advantages over competitors include a complete set of Hitachi ID designed agents, workflow engine and broad identity management infrastructure. Hitachi ID’s solution offers a much more scalable architecture and compliance tools, while offering a 'one price for all' licensing model.
With an exceptionally experienced professional services team, customer satisfaction remains Hitachi ID's highest priority. The highly scalable and practical design of Hitachi ID’s privileged identity management and governance solutions minimize the total cost of ownership making the solution affordable to both large and mid-sized enterprises, and drastically shorten deployment time.
Hitachi ID Systems delivers access governance and identity administration solutions to organizations globally. Hitachi ID solutions are used by Fortune 500 companies to secure access to systems in the enterprise and in the cloud.
Hitachi ID Systems is based in Calgary, Alberta Canada, with offices in Montreal, New York, Amsterdam and Brisbane, Australia. It was founded as a startup in 1992 and now employs almost 200 worldwide including more than 100 in Calgary.
