REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., June 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Oracle today announced that it has been named a leader in Gartner's inaugural "Magic Quadrant for Access Management, Worldwide 2017" report1. Oracle believes its leadership position for Oracle Access Management further highlights the exceptional service enhancements introduced by Oracle Identity Cloud Service so far this year.
"We believe this recognition is a credit to Oracle's commitment to build a comprehensive portfolio of PaaS security solutions, an integral piece of Oracle Cloud Platform," said Peter Barker, senior vice president, Identity and Security at Oracle. "Our goal has been to deliver a suite of security solutions that customers can adapt and scale to help secure their digital business transformation. Oracle Identity Cloud Service is a core part of Oracle's Identity-based Security Operations Center (SOC) framework that provides customers with an adaptive, machine learning-based security architecture."
For this report, Gartner evaluated vendors with regard to their ability to provide a general set of access management (AM) functionalities across multiple use cases, and in multiple geographies and industries, and to do so by providing solid value for money as perceived by their customers. According to the report, "Leaders in the AM market generally have significant customer bases. They provide feature sets that are appropriate for current customer use-case needs. Leaders also show evidence of strong vision and execution for anticipated requirements related to technology, methodology or means of delivery; and they show evidence of how AM plays a role in a collection of related or adjacent product offerings. Leaders typically demonstrate solid customer satisfaction with overall AM capabilities, the sales process and/or related service and support."
According to Gartner, "AM applies to technologies that use access control engines to provide centralized authentication, single sign-on (SSO), session management and authorization enforcement for target applications in multiple use cases. Access managers have evolved from early 'web access managers.' Target applications may have traditional web application architectures using web browsers and web application servers, and these applications may run on customers' premises or in the cloud."
