Identity Management Market Grows Rapidly, Driven by Regulations and Security Issues

A New Study by the Radicati Group Finds That the Identity Management Market Has Grown by Almost 50% Over the Past 12 Months

PALO ALTO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 9, 2007 -- The Radicati Group's latest study, "Identity Management Market, 2007-2011" provides market size, four-year forecasts, technology trends, and competitive information for the Identity Management market. Identity Management solutions are becoming widely used corporate products, helping companies to protect and manage their IT resources, as well as roles and access privileges of internal and external users.

The demand for Identity Management suites continues to be dominated by security and cost-cutting benefits; however, regulatory compliance is becoming equally important, especially for companies in North America. Various regulations, including the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, HIPAA, and others, may require companies to provide audit trails of all user actions to government auditors, and oblige top executives to be certain that no users have violated their access rights or used digital resources inappropriately.

According to the study, the Identity Management market, including all segments: full-suites, provisioning, secure access/authentication, and federated identity solutions will reach over $2.8 billion in 2007 in worldwide revenues, and grow to almost $13 billion by 2011.
