NOVATO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Radiant Logic, the market leader for identity virtualization solutions, today announced that it has been named a “Cool Vendor” in the Cool Vendors in Security: Identity and Access Management report (G00230384) by Gartner, Inc., a leading information technology research company. The report names up-and-coming technologies that drive innovation in the identity and access market segment, and underscores the important trend towards context-aware security in IAM.
“Gartner has once again identified some very strong Cool Vendors in 2012. These up-and-coming technology providers are all very different, but some clear and meaningful trends can be identified in their offerings,” the report reads. “These include…the need for contextual understanding of the vast amounts of data stored across complex, heterogeneous enterprise environments in making intelligent IAM and business decisions.”
The RadiantOne platform presents identity-related context to end-users from across an enterprise’s disparate identity and structured data sources. Radiant Logic’s Context Browser application offers an interface for users to search structured data captured and published by the RadiantOne advanced virtual directory. While the context browser is a unique application for the end user to access contextual data, it is the underlying RadiantOne identity virtualization process that extracts links, correlates structured data, and represents it in a common model that can be searched, and explored in English sentences.
“We’re thrilled to be included on this list. We’ve worked long and hard to spread our message about the importance of context in security and identity management. Now also with the rise of context-aware mobile applications, it’s exciting to see the idea gaining traction,” says Michel Prompt, CEO of Radiant Logic. “We believe that our inclusion demonstrates the growing demand to reveal and understand context across enterprises to enable smarter IAM, and even gain greater insight into customer behavior.”
Radiant Logic’s RadiantOne advanced virtual directory federates identities across directories, databases, and web-applications to create a secure virtual layer, and then publishes and shares this data with applications across the enterprise. RadiantOne’s platform allows all systems to be linked and represented in a common model that is updated in real-time—supporting a global view of all business and security processes.
