Courion Named a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Identity Governance and Administration for Second Consecutive Year

WESTBOROUGH, MA--(Marketwired - January 16, 2015) - Courion®, the market-leading provider of intelligent identity and access management (IAM) solutions, today announced that Gartner has named Courion a Leader in the 2015 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Identity Governance and Administration (IGA). This is the tenth time that Courion has been placed in the leaders quadrant in the Gartner Magic Quadrant report since 2007.

Courion believes that high satisfaction among organizations that use the Courion Access Assurance Suite™ and positive reviews of the company's support played a factor in the company's leadership position.

"We believe this is affirmation of our continued product leadership in identity governance and administration and our pioneering innovation in identity analytics and intelligence," said Chris Zannetos, CEO of Courion. "Our solution performs superbly across a wide range of use cases, and our customers are successful; as a result, they are willing to recommend the Courion Access Assurance Suite to others."

The Courion Access Assurance Suite provides next-generation identity and access management because it leverages Access Insight, an Identity and Analytics Intelligence (IAI) solution, to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of routine provisioning tasks and provide continuous monitoring so compliance issues can be identified and eliminated as they occur. With the Courion Access Assurance Suite, an organization is notified immediately when access rights are out of compliance with policies and regulations, and IT is presented with just those issues for approval or remediation. Using a traditional IAM solution, an organization may wait for periodic audit cycles, at which time IT reviews long lists of users and their access rights, leaving the organization vulnerable to access risk, potentially for months.
