IBM to bail out HP security customers

November 2008 News

IBM claims to fill the void left by HP’s exit from the identity management software market.

IBM has announced migration services and competitive migration pricing for ‘abandoned’ HP Identity Centre security software customers aimed at helping them benefit from IBM’s capabilities for securing and efficiently running IT for their business. IBM also announced new application security software and four new worldwide Trusted Identity Centres of Excellence to help organisations tie together physical and digital security to better manage the identity lifecycle of their customers and workforce.

In response to HP’s discontinued identity management products, IBM offers competitive migration pricing for software and migration services through Internet Security Systems (ISS) to provide HP customers the opportunity to efficiently convert from HP software to IBM’s security offerings, such as Tivoli Identity Manager, Tivoli Access Manager for e-Business and Tivoli Federated Identity Manager. IBM continues to strengthen its identity management commitment, most recently evidenced by the acquisition of Encentuate in March and release of the new Tivoli Access Manager for Enterprise Single Sign-On in September, adding new capabilities to help enterprises of all sizes minimise risk and cut operational costs through security.

“HP’s decision to throw in the towel on its identity and access management software line has left a void for customers,” said Al Zollar, general manager, IBM Tivoli Software. “Obviously security software is a critical linchpin for protecting a company’s global assets and reputation. IBM is committed to delivering a comprehensive portfolio of security software and services.”

As Internet use for business purposes continues to rise, the threat of securing Web applications from hackers, while maintaining compliance with mandatory business regulations, is on top of mind for organisations.
