Simeio Solutions Included in Cloud-Based IAM Sourcing Report by Independent Research Firm
Hoboken, NJ – November 1, 2012 – Simeio Solutions, provider of a comprehensive suite of enterprise Identity and Access Management (IAM) resources designed to offer a fully integrated solution, has been included in a September 2012 report from Forrester Research, Inc., entitled “Source Your Identity and Access Management Capabilities” with the subtitle “Build/Buy Capabilities: The Identity and Access Management Playbook.”
The report looks at cloud-based IAM as a potentially cost-effective alternative in four categories:
• IAM for SaaS that allows users to access and manage cloud-based business applications
• IAM as SaaS that moves provisioning into the cloud
• IAM to SaaS that integrates on-premises IAM solutions with SaaS business applications
• Federation broker networks that align partners in a federated IAM network
Simeio is shown as active in all of the first three categories.
The report also offers a self-assessment tool to assist security and risk professionals in weighting and quantifying several criteria to help guide a buy/build decision for the most effective cloud-based IAM solution.
“Cloud-based IAM can offer significant advantages in situations where capital resources or internal staffing is limited vs. an on-premises implementation,” said Simeio Solutions Managing Partner Hemen Vimadalal. “We are pleased to have been included in this valuable Forrester Research report and applaud them for developing a tool for helping to evaluate which cloud-based approach may be the best fit.”
Simeio Solutions is a unique strategic partner offering a comprehensive suite of enterprise Identity and Access Management resources designed to provide a fully integrated solution that meets the specific needs of each client. The company’s single-source approach to IAM encompasses managed services (both on-premise and remotely managed), cloud-based identity-as-a-service, and professional services that ensure on-target, smooth and cost-effective system design and implementation.
