CALGARY, Jan. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Hitachi ID Systems, one of very few vendors positioned in both the Leaders Quadrant in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for User Provisioning and Administration as well as in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Identity and Access Governance, has closed 2012 as a record-breaking year.

"2012 was a milestone year for us," asays Gideon Shoham, CEO.  "Our market-leading products in Identity and Privileged Access Management are recognized globally by market analysts as well as purchased world-wide by many companies including the world's largest food manufacturer, one of the world's largest international shipping companies and one of the world's top five banking institutions."

"Hitachi ID's growth and market presence over the last five years has been significant and has exceeded most industry expectations," says Andrew Kellet, Principal Analyst, Security with OVUM Group.  "From humble beginnings as a modest Canadian startup twenty years ago, the company now regularly competes for and wins significant global IAM deals.   Its products, particularly its Privileged Access Manager product, address critical needs in the market for implementing fully audit-able secure access to privileged accounts."

2012 also saw Hitachi ID sign a series of strategic partnerships with companies like McAfee, and win the 2012 Global Excellence Award for Identity Management Suite. More importantly, Hitachi ID spent the majority of 2012 on the development of cutting-edge innovations that will continue to concrete its leadership position in the IAM market, once released later in 2013.
