SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwire - September 11, 2007) - Identity Engines, a leading provider of identity-centric network access management solutions, today announced it has opened a second software research and development facility, leasing office space at 201 East 5900 South in Salt Lake City. Headquartered in Sunnyvale, Calif., Identity Engines selected Salt Lake City because of the favorable business environment that supports the needs of high-growth technology companies. Identity Engines was also attracted to the region because of the highly qualified technology workforce with deep skill sets in the areas that Identity Engines is seeking for its engineering team.

Identity Engines develops identity-centric solutions for securing enterprise networks. The company's Ignition Server and Ignition Guest Manager products use a combination of identity and situational information, including user device and posture, method of network access, location, date/time, and other attributes, to give organizations complete control over who accesses which network-based services, what devices they can use, where access is granted, and when and for how long the access should last. Identity Engines customers include security-conscious, thought-leading organizations in government, energy, education, and healthcare. Founded in 2004, the company has recently received significant industry recognition including being named an AlwaysOn Top 100 Private Company for 2007, and a Gartner "Cool Vendor" for Secure Business Enablement for 2007.
