Nexus Recognized by Gartner as a Visionary in 2014 Magic Quadrant for User Authentication

Positioned the furthest for Completeness of Vision in the Visionaries Quadrant

Nexus, a leading international provider of security solutions and services, today announced that it has been positioned the furthest for Completeness of Vision in the Visionaries Quadrant of the 2014 “Magic Quadrant for User Authentication”* by Gartner, Inc., a leading information technology research and advisory company.

According to the Gartner report, “Visionaries in this Magic Quadrant are vendors with a clearly articulated vision that is in line with the market trends. Their vision is typically backed by technical innovation and an understanding of the challenges and opportunities of the Nexus of Forces, the Internet of Things or the digital workplace, as well as by a solid business strategy. They have a steady track record, an appreciable presence in the market and acceptable business execution. Vendors in this quadrant can typically provide a very satisfactory solution for organizations across one or many use cases; this typically includes emerging needs pertaining to cloud or mobile, or a strong solution focused on one or a few particular use cases.”

Nexus’ portfolio for user authentication includes the PortWise Authentication Server, a software-based solution for enabling trusted, multi-factor authentication; the Nexus Identity Service, a cloud service that uses federation-based technologies to provide authentication and identification; and the Nexus Managed Identity Service, a managed hosted authentication and identification service.

“With the Internet of Things on the horizon, companies need to find a consistent, end-to-end approach to managing a multitude of authenticated identities of people, devices and software,” says Per Hägerö, Chief Technology Officer at Nexus. “We feel that the recognition by Gartner as one of the visionaries in the 2014 Magic Quadrant for User Authentication further affirms our commitment and innovative strength in delivering a future-proof platform for both physical and digital identity and access management.”
