Identity Management Suites Gain Market Traction Thanks to More Stringent Corporate Compliance Requirements

A New Study by The Radicati Group Shows That the Identity Management Market Is Growing at a Fast Pace

PALO ALTO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 7, 2005 -- The Radicati Group's latest study, "Identity Management Market, 2005-2009" provides market size, four-year forecasts, technology trends, and competitive information for the Identity Management market. Identity Management solutions have moved from the category of novelty to established and widely deployed corporate products. Combining directory services, provisioning, secure access/authentication and federation elements, Identity Management suites enable the secure and automatic management of user roles and identities across corporate resources.

Companies deploying Identity Management solutions are increasingly motivated by regulatory compliance reasons, requiring them to provide audit trails of all user actions to government auditors. Such regulations as HIPAA require that confidential patient data can't be accessed by unauthorized users. Other regulations, such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, require top executives to be certain that no users inside their company have violated their access rights or used digital resources they had access to inappropriately. Identity Management solutions can help companies do both -- recreate past events to prove there were no violations, as well as prevent such violations from happening in the first place.

According to the study, the Identity Management market, including all segments: full-suites, provisioning, secure access/authentication, and federated identity solutions will reach over $1.2 billion in 2005 in worldwide revenues, and grow to over $8.5 billion by 2008.
