Swedish Partner For Access Management Specialist

Courion : 01 July, 2010  (Company News)
Courion has signed up Cortego from Sweden to supply identity and access management solutions with asset management and governance capability in the Scandinavian region
Courion has signed identity and access management (IAM) specialist system integrator Cortego as a Solutions Partner for Sweden. In the region, new stringent compliance regulations and a growing fear that a high profile data loss case is imminent has increased demand for IAM solutions.

Courion has achieved rapid market penetration for its solutions in Europe and now boasts over 70 blue-chip customers in the region. Industry analysts predict significant continued growth for IAM solutions across the continent in the next 12 months.

Based in Stockholm, Cortego will expand Courion's reach in Sweden. Cortego offers security information and event management (SIEM) and IAM solutions and services with a particular emphasis on healthcare, financial and public sector. Since its formation in 2007, it has rapidly built up an enviable client base which includes the likes of Ericsson, the Swedish Tax Authority and Swedish bank SEB.

"There is a genuine fear that a catastrophic data loss event is just around the corner in our region. This has buoyed the market potential for IAM and led to us receiving many enquiries from organisations wanting to solve complex IAM, risk and compliance challenges," commented Anders Brannfors, Cortego's sales and marketing director. "Courion's access assurance solutions are the best in this space, as exemplified by its placement in the recent Gartner Magic Quadrant for User Provisioning. Its proprietary platform is very user friendly and easy to implement."

"We see this relationship as a major step forward in our European growth plans," says Michael Gomez, Courion's European channel sales director. "Cortego is one of the most recognised and experienced IAM partners in this region and we are extremely excited that it will be supporting us in our efforts in Sweden."

Courion Solution Partners - which include Strategic Partners such as Citrix Systems, McAfee, RSA, The Security Division of EMC, and Symantec; as well as other Managed Service Providers; VARs; System Integrators and Consultants - use Courion technology to provide value added solutions that support identity and access management by strengthening security, improving compliance, reducing operating costs, and improving service levels and productivity.

To help them succeed, Courion provides a full range of sales and technical resources including access to a dedicated partner portal, sales training, technical certification training, lead sharing, joint marketing and promotional opportunities, and joint selling.

"Courion is a very agile company that is easy to work with and provides all the support and expertise we need, already we have had a lot of interest for its solutions in our region," added Brannfors.

Courion's approach to Access Assurance unifies Access Governance, Access Provisioning and Access Compliance in the most complex, heterogeneous environments. This comprehensive approach increases operational efficiency and transparency, strengthens security, and improves compliance, while delivering the industry's fastest time to value and lowest total cost of ownership.
