SAN RAMON, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 8, 2013) - Avatier Corp., a leader in risk-driven identity management software, today announced that the latest version of their Identity Management Suite has received an overall five star rating from the annual SC Magazine Group Test. The suite received five star ratings for ease of use; performance; documentation; support; and value for money.

According to the report, the product was easy to use and is a good value for the money. Its flexible connector framework integrates with on-premise custom applications and commercial off-the-shelf solutions, as well as cloud-based applications. The connectors communicate with the target systems and allow for automation of identity actions such as password changes, account provisioning, granting access and more.

"We were pleased to receive the publication's highest rating again this year," commented Nelson Cicchitto, chairman and CEO of Avatier. "Operational efficiency and time to value are our two core values and this report validated our success in these areas. Our identity management and access governance solutions make organizations the most secure, compliant and productive in the shortest time at the lowest cost. That's why our products are deployed worldwide across 16 vertical markets and hundreds of organizations with millions of managed user identities."

The report singles out Avatier's Identity Enforcer, which puts access risk accountability in the hands of the business user; as well as Avatier's IT Store. Cicchitto points out that the store enables access risk management when users order IT services like requests for access, assets or applications through an integrated online service catalog.
