“Simeio understands the need for a holistic approach to identity, and the Simeio Identity Orchestrator is proof that they’re approaching identity not as a tool, but a comprehensive platform that is architected throughout the enterprise,” states Martin Kuppinger, Founder and Principal Analyst at KuppingerCole. “They are delivering an inclusive set of identity capabilities as a managed service, providing easy, controlled access and privileges —supporting a range of deployment models.”
Simeio is distinguished from other vendors that have integrated offerings spanning their own IAM tools. Simeio IO comes with integration capabilities from over a dozen IAM, ITSM, SIEM and Risk vendors delivering true orchestration that is pre-integrated as one platform. This provides a holistic view and control plane for Identity Governance, Access Management and Privileged Access across employees, customers, partners and things.
The company goes beyond merely integrating existing solutions and adds a range of their own capabilities in a modern microservices architecture. “Identity has become a business mandate for enterprise security, and organizations must ensure their identity fabrics are flexible, modular, easily consumed, and consistently applied,” states Asif Savvas, Senior Vice President of Products and Offerings at Simeio. “This is a fundamental requirement for effectively mediating the connections between every user and service. The identity space is expanding rapidly, and we are honored to be ranked in the Overall Leadership category in the KuppingerCole 2021 Identity Fabrics report, and we are privileged to have also been recognized as a leader in the Identity Innovations and Identity Products categories.”
