Veriphyr Named Cool Vendor in Identity and Access Management by Leading Analyst Firm

Identity and Access Intelligence SaaS Provider Selected for Report that Recognizes Innovative, Impactful and Intriguing Vendors, Products and Services

April 28, 2011 – Veriphyr, a leading provider of Identity and Access Intelligence (IAI), has been included in the list of "Cool Vendors" in the April 21 report titled "Cool Vendors in Identity and Access Management, 2011" by Ray Wagner et al, of Gartner, Inc.

Veriphyr’s identity and access intelligence SaaS solution proactively detects data privacy breaches and inappropriate access to applications, databases, and systems. The company’s advanced data analytics transform identity, rights, and activity data into actionable intelligence for business managers responsible for privacy, compliance, risk, and security.
We believe being named a Cool Vendor by Gartner confirms Veriphyr’s unique approach to providing identity and access intelligence as a SaaS solution. that companies can consume on a pay-for-use basis,” said Alan Norquist, Founder and CEO of Veriphyr. “The Veriphyr service reveals underlying access patterns and over privileged accounts that can lead to security threats and compliance violations. By analyzing actual activity rather than expected activity and access information from directories, applications, systems, and policy repositories we provide intelligence that clients need to prevent data leaks and privacy violations.”
According to Gartner, “several segments of the identity and access management (IAM) market continue to experience significant innovation in technology, product and service offerings. Chief information security officers and other security professionals should familiarize themselves with Gartner's 2011 Cool Vendors in IAM, and with the potential business benefits they offer.”

Identity and Access Intelligence
Veriphyr is the originator of a new technology category, called IAI, which uses advanced data analytics to mine identity, rights, and activity data for intelligence that is useful not only for IT operations, but also for broader business operations.

Unlike traditional Identity and Access Management (IAM) products, IAI focuses on the needs of business managers, who typically have the best knowledge of what resources their direct reports should or should not be accessing, when they should be accessing it, and how much resource utilization is appropriate. IAI improves the IAM process with intelligence about actual rather than expected usage and privileges, which is needed for a successful project implementation.
