OpenSSO - a Web Access Management Leader

Another year, another Gartner Magic Quadrant for Web Access Management. Where 2007 saw Sun Access Manager entering the leader space, close to the leader/challenger 'cusp', this year Sun OpenSSO Enterprise is solidly in the magic leader quadrant.

As Daniel mentions, we saw great growth this last year, so it's puzzling that they list 'flat growth' as a 'caution' for us. Then again, that is the only caution, so I guess they had to find something negative.

On the positive side, they list our market leadership, full range of features, leadership in open source identity, the strength of the OpenSSO community, our innovation around the Fedlet and much, much more. Pick up the report, courtesy of Sun, and see for yourself.

Gartner: Sun IAM & Open Source - STRONG POSITIVE

Via Tatsuo Kudo - Gartner recently published their latest vendor rating for Sun. The overall picture is, well, sunny, if you'll pardon the pun, but I'm particularly pleased with their ratings in the areas of Identity and Access Management and Open Source - 'Strong Positive'\* for both, which means that OpenSSO and OpenDS must be doubly blessed

\* Strong Positive: Is viewed as a provider of strategic products, services or solutions:

  • Customers: Continue with planned investments.
  • Potential customers: Consider this vendor a strong choice for strategic investments.

I'm the Leader, I'm the Leader...

...I'm the Leader of the Gang (I Am)!!! I know - Gary Glitter has fallen long and hard, but it's still a great song and appropriate for today - Gartner has placed Sun Java System Access Manager in the leader quadrant of their Magic Quadrant for Web Access Management, 2H07 [PDF]. I happen to think that they have under-rated us somewhat on our completeness of vision, but I can't argue with the rating on ability to execute.

One thing worth mentioning is that one of the 'cons' listed for Sun - "Sun does not support ADFS/WS-Federation in its federation tools" - will be addressed in the next release - Federated Access Manager 8.0 - and is already in OpenSSO. So, if your existing infrastructure leans to the MS side, but you need world-class web access management, federation, identity web services and more, scoot on over to OpenSSO and take a look.
