Everyone loves getting some recognition, right? We certainly do, so we’re doubly excited to share that today Cyber Defense Magazine announced that Idaptive won the Cutting Edge Identity and Access Management InfoSec Award for 2019.

The magazine looked at more than 3,000 security technology companies in dozens of different categories for its annual contest – which it calls a “review of the hottest, most innovative, best, market leaders, next-generation and cutting edge infosec companies offering incredible products and services” – and selected Idaptive as one of the most advanced IAM technologies in the market.

Additionally, Idaptive also was named as a silver award winner in the Multi-Factor Authentication category, and a bronze winner for Identity and Access Management category in the Cybersecurity Excellence Awards.

All three awards are a fantastic sign that we’re leading the market in providing our customers with the best next-gen access technology. When we launched our Next-Gen Access Cloud last month, it marked the beginning of a new era in IAM solutions, centered around context and intelligence designed to help businesses navigate the complexities of modern identity and offer secure access everywhere. As identity grows more complex with a constantly changing amount of gateways in which identity and access need to be verified, organizations need to know that this complexity won’t result in more risk or terrible experiences for their users.

Idaptive gives them this peace of mind.

If you’d like to see for yourself what an award-winning IAM platform can do for your company or organization, we’d love for it to join the thousands of others using Idaptive to secure their identity and access.

If Corey could have any chameleon-like superpower, it would be the chameleon's tongue, which is ridiculously fast. Some of the world's smallest chameleons have the world's fastest tongues. In automotive terms, the tongue could go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in a hundredth of a second! “I would be able to complete webinars in 4.5 seconds instead of 45 minutes!”
