Fischer International Named in Gartner's Hype Cycle for Real-Time Health System Technologies, 2016 as a Sample Vendor

Fischer International Identity, a leading provider of identity & access management software and cloud services, has been identified as a sample vendor in the Gartner Hype Cycle for Real-Time Health System Technologies, 2016. Fischer was named in the Identity Governance and Administration (IGA) category.

Among the report's conclusions, Barry Runyon, Research VP at Gartner, provides the following advice for facilitating a successful IGA implementation: "If possible, user administration/provisioning should be implemented before other identity and access management initiatives, such as single sign-on and strong authentication measures. IGA implementations are as much about planning, people, policies and processes as they are about the underlying technologies. Most failed or stalled IGA implementations are a result of underestimating the effort required in these areas."

Fischer International Identity, a provider of user provisioning technology since 2000, views Gartner's conclusion as an industry best practice. "I agree with Barry’s assessment. All too often, organizations look for quick wins such as SSO, then consider themselves more secure than they were before which is not always the case" says Fischer COO, Dan Dagnall. "Defining your access policies and taking control over provisioning users provides real security and real risk aversion for businesses. Often times, people underestimate the importance of having granular access policies that include the conditions required for the user to actually have an account in a system in the first place. Only then can customers consider themselves more secure."
