Avatier to Reveal Next Wave of Identity Access Management to Protect the Brand, Guard Data and Increase Business Productivity at Gartner Summit

CEO Nelson Cicchitto to Present New Definition Based on the Impact of Megatrends on IT

SAN RAMON, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 29, 2012) - Avatier Corp., a leading provider of identity access management software, will be introducing Identity and Access Management Holistic Definition (IAM HD) at the Gartner Identity and Access Management Summit in Las Vegas, December 3-5. The concept is a business-driven approach with a clearer, broader vision of IAM that encompasses all aspects of assignment management for the entire organization. In his presentation entitled "Leveraging Today's Megatrends To Drive The Future Of Identity Management," Avatier CEO Nelson Cicchitto will outline the next step in the evolution of identity and access management; the dramatic influence it can have in protecting the brand, guarding data and increasing business productivity while streamlining IT department processes; and the role IT managers will play in its adoption.

"The twenty year old IAM space deserves a new, innovative approach," Cicchitto commented. "The time has to come to redefine IAM to keep up with evolving technology advancements, expanding IT eco-systems, and new business-focused customer demands."

"Smart organizations are taking a fresh approach to Identity Management," he added. "After trying several failed IT-focused implementations, organizations have come to realize that success hinges on allowing the right stakeholders to decide who gets access to what, when, how and why. IAM HD will provide all the features of requesting, approving, tracking and granting assignments, but not just access to applications -- access to all corporate assets -- systems, facilities and equipment. Today IT managers are buying point solutions to handle this problem. IAM HD avoids today's fragmentation and puts everything into one holistic solution."

The session which will be held Monday, December 3 at 10:45 AM in the Augustus V ballroom, Caesars Palace, also features a customer -- one of the nation's largest healthcare networks -- who will present how the concept is beginning to take hold today.

The same day from 4:15-5:15, Kristen Singleton, CIO of The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas will deliver a case study on Streamlining User Provisioning which outlines her challenges to onboard approximately 4500 new employees in three months, with minimal infrastructure in place while managing provisioning and deprovisioning of these employees in compliance with SOX, PCI, and Nevada Gaming Control Board regulations. She will share the process, challenges and solution which integrated many key Cosmopolitan systems, including the HR system, allowing for automated account setup across the diverse user population.

During the Summit, attendees can visit Avatier at booth PR1 in the Octavius Ballroom to learn more about Avatier's Access Identity Management Suite (AIMS), its patented IT store and universal mobile provisioning iPad application.
