Simeio Solutions Recognized as a Leader in Innovation in KuppingerCole Analysts 2019 Leadership Compass Report

Report: Simeio offers a “viable alternative” to established IDaaS vendors while IDaaS starting to dominate IAM purchases for most use-cases

ATLANTA, December 4, 2019 – Simeio Solutions, the global leader in Identity and Access Management (IAM) as-a-Service, has been recognized as an Innovation Leader in the KuppingerCole 2019 Leadership Compass for Identity as a Service (IDaaS) – IGA. The report calls out the strengths of the company’s Simeio Identity Orchestrator, and praises the “strong Access Management capabilities.”

Simeio Solutions joins Microsoft and IBM in ranking as an Innovation Leader this year. In the report, KuppingerCole Founder and Principal Martin Kuppinger describes innovation as “a key capability in all IT market segments.” Rather than focusing on an endless stream of product releases, innovative companies focus on product upgrades and features that benefit customers, he shares. 

“Simeio Identity Orchestrator comes with a good support for Identity Provisioning and Access Governance, covering most of the common use cases,” Kuppinger writes. “They provide good support for connecting back to on-premise systems as well as broad support for SaaS target systems. Access reviews, workflow support for request and approval, and a range of other capabilities are supported.”

“Simeio combines its IAM development experience and systems integration expertise to present a viable alternative to several established IDaaS vendors, particularly for organizations that lack IAM knowledge and expertise internally and will require detailed guidance and support for transitioning existing on-prem access management to IDaaS.”

Simeio Identity Orchestrator received the highest rating, “strongly positive”, for Security, Functionality, Interoperability, and Usability and was rated as “positive” for Integration. Simeio also scored “positive” for Ecosystem, Market Position, and Financial Strength, and “strongly positive” for Innovativeness. The report highlights the following strengths of Simeio’s Identity as a Service – Identity Governance and Administration (IGA) :

  • A wide range of software-as-a-service (SaaS) integrations
  • Supports both IDaaS, IGA, and Access Management (AM) use cases
  • A good set of Identity Provisioning and Access Governance capabilities
  • Flexible deployment and administration options across hosted service and full IDaaS
  • Good expertise with IAM systems integration
  • Identity Proofing, assurance and trust score capabilities for critical consumer and citizen IAM use cases via Simeio Identity Vault

According to Kuppinger, IDaaS IGA is increasingly becoming “the preferred choice of customers for IAM purchases globally.” 

“We’re honored that KuppingerCole Analysts identified Simeio Solutions as a 2019 Leader in Innovation for IDaaS IGA,” said Shawn Keve, Executive Vice President & Chief Revenue Officer at Simeio Solutions. “We’ve protected more than 150 million identities with our solution, and this recognition reflects our efforts to continue providing the most complete, modular and interoperable IAM solution in the market — delivered as a reliable, measurable service.”
