Cloud Access Management Service Gains Gartner Recognition

Lighthouse Computer Services : 21 April, 2010  (Company News)
Lighthouse Security Group gains recognition for its achievements in cloud security services with its identity and access management suite
Lighthouse Security Group, a provider of cloud-based Identity and Access Management solutions, has been included in the list of 'Cool Vendors' in the April 2010 published Cool Vendors in Cloud Security Services, 2010 report by Gartner. This year, five vendors worldwide were named Cool Vendors in the Cloud Security Services Category, making this a highly selective list of innovators.

"We believe being selected as a Cool Vendor by Gartner is a vote of confidence in our mission to unlock the power of Cloud Computing for identity and access management," said Eric Maass, Enterprise Security Solutions Director for Lighthouse Security Group. "We continue to innovate while we execute on our product roadmap. By building our cloud solution upon the Tivoli Security software suite, we are delivering a truly revolutionary product that brings well-proven software to customers with the exceptional ROI of cloud delivery."

Based on IBM's industry-leading Tivoli Identity and Access Management (IAM) software, Lighthouse Gateway is a comprehensive, turnkey cloud-based IAM solution. Lighthouse Gateway offers you unique benefits, such as:

Lighthouse Gateway's Identity Management (IDM) solution drives consistent, timely, and accurate identity information throughout your enterprise. Gateway Identity Management services allow for synchronization, transformation and policy-driven control over this information, including provisioning and deprovisioning across multiple databases and directories for user, account, and group/role information. Gateway's IDM capabilities address pressing business needs such as:

· Inaccurate Personnel Data
· Discrepancies Between Disparate Identity Repositories
· Automating Manual Human Workflows
· Provisioning and De-Provisioning Users

Lighthouse Gateway's Access Management solution consolidates your disparate access control mechanisms and disjointed access policies into a robust, easy-to-manage, and consistent policy-driven system. Gateway's Access Management solution provides benefits such as:

The expanding market for cloud-based security services is a topic of other recent Gartner comments. "IAM as a service will drive broader adoption of IAM by small and midsize business, better cost-benefit accountability and IAM appliance innovation," wrote Earl Perkins, Gartner Research Analyst, IAM Services and IAM as a Service: Defining the Markets. June 19, 2009. (Publication ID Number: G00168894; page 1).
