Securent, Inc., the award-winning leader in the Entitlement Management market, today announced that the Info Security Products Guide, a Silicon Valley Communications publication and a leading publication on security-related products and technologies, has named Securent’s Entitlement Management Solution (EMS) as the winner of three 2007 Global Excellence Customer Trust Awards.
As a result of end-user voting, Securent EMS was named the top product for its excellence in the Entitlement Management, Policy Management, and Security Solution for Government award categories. According to the Info Security Products Guide, more than 18,000 end users and prospective customers worldwide were invited to vote for the products that they trust most when it comes to protecting their digital resources.
“Security products have continued to evolve rapidly in the past few years and advanced technologies are now making it possible to take a pro-active approach to most security scenarios,” said Rake Narang, Managing Editor of Info Security Products Guide. “End users or consumers of these products have to deal with real-live threats which may differ vastly from lab simulated environments. These users build a strong ‘Customer Trust’ for products that best meet their requirements and therefore also play a key role in the security evolution cycle. We applaud Securent for coming out on top in three Customer Trust award categories.”
Securent EMS enables organizations to secure sensitive applications and data with ease and precision. For the first time, organizations can benefit from a proven XACML standard-based solution to create, enforce, review, and audit fine-grained access policies across heterogeneous application and IT environments distributed throughout the enterprise, all with centralized management and visibility. Securent provides a more scalable and cost-effective alternative to custom coding of fine-grained access controls into applications. Loosely coupling entitlements with application services, Securent EMS is also a key infrastructure service in an effective SOA deployment. The results, as seen in Fortune 1000 deployments, include improved security and compliance with regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard, the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), Basel Capital Accord (Basel II), and the National Association of Securities Dealers Rule 2711 (NASD 2711).
“The Info Security Products Guide is a valued resource written expressly for end users of security products, and we are pleased to be recognized with three Global Excellence Customer Trust Awards, all based on end-user voting and customer trust,” said Securent CEO Rajiv Gupta. “Customer trust is especially critical to security companies, and these multiple recognitions by end users further validate the unique value Securent brings by providing unified management, enforcement, and audit of the entitlement policies that govern access to applications, data, and IT resources across distributed enterprises. Customers in all markets, including government, put their trust in Securent, and we are honored to have been selected by them for these awards.”
