NetIQ today announced that Novell Identity Manager has been named a finalist in the Identity Management Application category of the 2012 SC Awards. SC Magazine's esteemed reader base selected Identity Manager as a best-in-class security product, deeming it one of the information security industry's most effective solutions that helps address critical IT security challenges today.

"Failure to control user access across today's complex IT ecosystem can lead to security events or failed audits, undermining corporate reputation and value," said Ron Hardy, vice president of Products and Marketing at NetIQ. "Identity and access management projects are central to addressing this enterprise challenge. NetIQ is wholly committed to delivering a cost-effective identity management solution that can be quickly deployed, integrated with existing infrastructure and applications and managed by business users rather than developers."

Identity Manager delivers automated user provisioning and deprovisioning, identity administration, access control and self-service password management, and provides sophisticated roles management across physical, virtual and cloud environments. By automating and centralizing identity management, Identity Manager can help customers save cost, time and corporate reputation in today's sophisticated threat landscape.

"With the ability to properly manage access and prove identity compliance across physical, virtual and cloud environments, organizations can achieve compliance and meet their business objectives with identity management," continued Hardy. "This recognition truly validates the value that security and IT professionals experience with Identity Manager, and we are thrilled to be named as an SC Awards finalist."
