AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Edgile, the leading cyber risk and regulatory compliance firm providing cloud and on-premises security solutions to the Fortune 500, today announced that Gartner has listed Edgile as a representative vendor of consulting services in their 2017 Market Guide for Identity and Access Management (IAM) Professional Services, North America.
This latest recognition comes on the heels of SailPoint naming Edgile their 2017 Partner of the Year for the Americas, further highlighting Edgile’s commitment to provide deep expertise in an era of increasing demand for modern security services. SailPoint was recently positioned as a Leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Identity Governance and Administration (IGA).
According to Gartner, “The availability of experienced people continues to be the most significant constraint facing both IAM professional services firms and their customers in North America … Gartner expects that the current mix of managed services provided by IAM professional services firms worldwide will shift only slightly toward more efficient, methodology-driven services, while staff augmentation will remain the dominant model over the long term.”
With Gartner forecasting that “by 2020, 40% of IAM professional services firms providing IAM managed services will have stopped taking on new customers,” Edgile predicts this latest selective compilation of represented IAM vendors focuses on leading organizations shaping the future of IAM today.
“As companies continue their digital transformations to better engage customers, security continues to elevate in boardroom conversations,” said Edgile CEO Don Elledge. “IAM is a critical part of modern security, and when managed correctly, it significantly improves an organization's ongoing risk posture.”
With a long history as a professional services firm to the Fortune 500, Edgile continues to promote strategic thinking and measured, pragmatic implementations to uplevel identity-centric security in the very large enterprise.
“We continue to see organizations viewing identity as a tactical project—all while ignoring a deep strategic perspective into people, process, and data,” said Edgile Managing Partner Larry Wolf. “Our most successful clients think strategy-first, which often leads to an identity-centric security approach. From there, the company can confidently begin its journey into effective execution.”
