Evaluation based on Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision
ANDOVER, Mass., Sept. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Sentillion, whose identity and access management (IAM) solutions are the most widely implemented in healthcare, today announced that it has been positioned in the Visionaries quadrant by Gartner, Inc. in the Magic Quadrant for User Provisioning, 2H07. A full copy of the Magic Quadrant for User Provisioning, 2H07 (authored by Earl Perkins, Roberta J. Witty; August 23, 2007) is available, compliments of Sentillion, at: http://www.sentillion.com.
In this report, vendors were evaluated by Gartner on the basis of their ability to execute and completeness of vision. According to Gartner, "Visionaries invest in the leading-edge features that will be significant in the next generation of products and that will give buyers early access to improved security and management."
Sentillion proVision is a comprehensive, enterprise-class user provisioning solution, which is purpose-built to address the unique requirements of the healthcare market.
In healthcare, the need for a provisioning solution is paramount because the process of creating and managing user accounts for clinical, business and personal productivity applications presents more challenges than in any other industry. Since most users fulfill several different job functions at different times using a myriad of highly specialized, departmental applications, a healthcare provisioning solution must address both productivity and compliance.
"We are extremely pleased that Gartner has positioned Sentillion in the visionaries quadrant in the provisioning market," said Paul Roscoe, president of worldwide sales and marketing for Sentillion. "In my opinion, this is further confirmation of Sentillion's commitment to healthcare to innovate and deliver solutions that are purpose-built to help overcome the complex and time intensive challenges that burden this industry. It is our dedication to the healthcare market, in my opinion, which has established Sentillion as an industry leader."
With proVision, caregivers can be up, running and productive on a healthcare organization's information systems on the first day of their residency, staff assignment or upon receiving admitting privileges. And from a compliance standpoint, when a user leaves the organization or changes roles, proVision uniformly alters, disables, or terminates their access to systems and applications. proVision is presently used by healthcare organizations across North America to administer more than 125,000 managed identities.
According to David Finn, vice president and CIO of Texas Children's Hospital, "Other vendors we considered just didn't understand provisioning as it relates to clinical applications. When we spoke to Sentillion we were very impressed. They were not only speaking our language but they really understood the unique challenges of healthcare provisioning. They were able to address all of our pain points, and clearly had the best solution for us."
For almost a decade, Sentillion has been at the forefront of innovation when it comes to delivering solutions that help healthcare organizations overcome the challenges associated with identity and access management. The first company to bring a single sign-on solution on a network appliance to market, Sentillion's IAM solutions are the most widely deployed in healthcare and used daily by more than 275,000 caregivers.
