Suite Named Best Identity and Access Management Solution at the Inaugural Computing Security Awards
Manchester, UK — November 11, 2010 — Courion® Corporation, leaders in access governance, compliance, and provisioning today announced its Access Assurance Suite™ solution won Best Identity and Access Management Solution at the inaugural Computing Security Awards at a black tie event at Hotel Russell, Russell Square, London.
The Computing Security Awards was launched this year to honour the products and services that have made a positive contribution to making organisations more secure. They are the only awards to recognise excellence in IT security where the winners are determined by the democratic process of on-line nominating and voting, so are a litmus test of market perceptions of what the best security products are in the market.
“In total more than 5,000 security professionals cast votes making this one of the biggest surveys relating to security solutions ever carried out in the UK. As organisers, we were delighted with the level of participation from readers and we congratulate Courion on winning the Best Identity and Access Management Solution category,” said David Bonner, event manager, BTC.
Courion’s Access Assurance Suite is used by businesses worldwide to ensure that only the right people have the right access to the right resources and are doing the right things with it. The Suite helps organisations define, verify and enforce user access in accordance with policy and regulatory requirements. It integrates disparate islands of sensitive information from data loss prevention (DLP), security incident and event management (SIEM) and other sources so they can effectively manage and protect access to sensitive data. Automating the discovery, validation, remediation, and reporting of user access results in higher levels of compliance and security, while engaging the business managers and lightening the load on IT staff.
“It was great for the Courion Access Assurance Suite to be recognised by the Computing Security Awards voters for its enormous benefits of ensuring user access is in accordance with policy, demonstrating regulatory compliance, and reducing audit preparation costs,” said Bill Norberg, Courion’s senior VP of worldwide sales and field operations, who was on hand to accept the award. “This marks the fourth such award our Access Assurance Suite has received this year, a run we are immensely proud of.”
