2 2 Identity Management Market Update Executive summary IdM market is consolidating cross-functionally Vendors are refining packaging and integration issues Meanwhile, the need to move forward in building identity infrastructure is urgent Recommended approach: For product acquisition, rely on vendors that will be long-term, full- service providers of IdM or smaller vendors likely to be acquired by an acceptable vendor Focus on deploying foundational, mature, and interoperable technologies Wait for market convergence to solve some of the higher-level issues or treat the deployment of such technology as purely tactical

3 3 Directory Identity Management Market Update Overlap without integration causes consternation and cost Around 60 vendors in IdM Meta-directory Appliances Access Management Virtual Directory Provisioning Password Management Authentication

4 4 Identity Management Market Update Market corrections underway A thousand flowers have bloomed; time for the bouquet Lots of technology has sprung up to fill specific needs Vendors have little room to expand without creating further overlap Economic realities are driving consolidation Vendors looking for ways to accelerate growth, increase their share Typically, this means creating integrated suites of IdM products Vendors continually evaluating buy-vs-build evaluations But investors in target companies often don’t want to sell at today’s deflated valuations Results in a war of attrition, slower transition than merger and acquisitions

5 5 Identity Management Market Update Hooked on suites: Vendors pursuing multi-IdM strategies VendorAccessProvNPasswdMetaAuthN IBM Novell Sun CA Microsoft Netegrity Oblix RSA Entrust = Partner provided

6 6 Identity Management Market Update Consolidation denouement Who will have a seat when the music stops? Platform and suite vendors will remain Microsoft, IBM, Novell, and Sun committed to IdM BEA will cover some aspects of IdM HP acquired part of Baltimore Technologies and will likely acquire other IdM technology A few independent companies will emerge as platform-neutral IdM companies Netegrity a strong possibility Entrust, RSA are candidates with security emphasis Novell may fit here rather than as a platform vendor Oblix – has yet to go public or produce a broad IdM product line Other vendors will serve niche markets or exit the IdM market

7 7 Identity Management Market Update Consolidation: A technical view Two technical areas: operational and management Directory Meta-directory Appliances Access Management Virtual Directory Provisioning Password Management Authentication Identity Integration Access Management

8 8 Identity Management Market Update Defining access management Software that enables authentication, identification, and authorization for users in the context of a security domain Improves manageability and accountability Operates a layer above the application, replacing ad-hoc, inconsistent Web application authentication and access controls

10 10 Identity Management Market Update Access management in the context of the über-architecture Where to put the application policy? Perimeter layerControl layerResource layer Application Application server Web access manager Security appliance Standards & protocols Access layer Web server / proxy

11 11 Identity Management Market Update Identity integration overview What is identity integration? Technology that links and unifies identity information across a wide range of applications Identity integration is the means, not the end It’s the leavening that improves the success of other projects App 1App 2App 3App 4App 5 Integrated sign-on and permissions Common Profile

12 12 Identity Management Market Update Four types of identity integration activities Account management Creation, deactivation, and removal Enforce naming policies Data synchronization and maintenance of identity data Ensure that attributes on an account are accurate and consistent with other applications Enterprise directory deployments Permissions and access maintenance Group and role membership Rules based on identity data Password management and synchronization Definition of management vs. synchronization

13 13 Choosing a Vendor Several approaches and solutions today Feature overlap in products can be confusing Causes redundant infrastructure for similar and related solutions Activity Product Account Mgmt.
