Gartner, Inc. recently released its 2010 edition of the Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) magic quadrant. This year, Gartner placed Novell Sentinel-our SIEM technology-in the leader’s quadrant.
This is a significant accomplishment for two reasons: First, it reaffirms Novell’s commitment to the identity and security management space in general, and to the security management space, in particular. Second, it’s another proof point that Novell truly delivers a suite of industry-leading identity and security technologies.
Novell’s been in the identity game for over decade. Since then, we’ve continued to innovate and lead the identity and security market with a host of technologies-like Novell Identity Manager, Novell Sentinel and Novell Access Manager-that were not only built to work seamlessly together out of the box, but are also considered leaders in their respective market categories.
Novell Sentinel, for example, is part of our Novell Compliance Management Platform-the ONLY product on the market to integrate identity management, access management and security management together out of the box. You read that right. Of the major players in the market, Novell is the ONLY one that offers this level of integration between its products. In fact, Novell is also the ONLY player in the market whose identity management, access management and security management technologies are rated as “leaders” in Gartner’s user provisioning, Web access management and SIEM magic quadrants, respectively. Oracle can’t make that claim. Neither can IBM, nor CA.
What does that mean for our customers? No matter which product they choose, they can rest easy knowing that their Novell investments have been proven, time and again, in real-world deployments; that identity and security management isn’t just a side business for us-it’s part of our DNA; and that we’ll continue building best-in-class, integrated products while other vendors play catch up.
If there was ever a doubt in your mind that Novell was serious about identity and security management, now’s a great time to revisit that thought. And if you want an unbiased opinion, call up your favorite analyst and ask them about our suite. Better yet, see examples of some of the thousands of global customers that are running Novell Identity Manager, Novell Access Manager or Novell Sentinel.
