NAPLES, Fla., Nov. 14, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bloor Research confirmed Fischer International Identity is a top vendor in identity and access management (IAM) services by rating them a Champion in Bloor's "Market Update: Identity & Access Management Services." The report provides a snapshot of the current state of the market for identity and access management (IAM) services.

"Such [IAM] services are relevant to organizations of all sizes and in any line of business... every organization needs to control and protect access to sensitive data, from financial information to intellectual property, as well as personally identifiable information regarding employees, customers and business partners," according to Fran Howarth, Senior Analyst, Security, with Bloor. "Mobile, cloud and social are disruptive forces that are changing the technology landscape. They enable new business opportunities and greater productivity, but also introduce new risks that need to be countered to prevent sensitive information from being accessed inappropriately."

This enables organizations to achieve a variety of objectives such as increasing service levels, controlling costs and improving governance and compliance.

"We're pleased that the Bloor Research chart places Fischer among the top three vendors in IAM Services," stated Dennis McDermott, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Fischer.
