Cyber Defense Global Awards Honor N8 Identity With Award for Next Gen Identity Management

N8 Identity has been named the winner of the Cyber Defense Magazine’s Cyber Defense 2018 Global Awards for NextGen Identity Management. Winners were announced on October 3 at the IP EXPO Conference 2018.

N8 Identity was recognized for its flagship identity governance product, TheAccessHub. Designed for mid-sized to large organizations with growing security needs, the Microsoft Azure-based platform provides identity governance for employees, contractors, vendors, partners and customers, delivering visibility and management of “who has access to what” across the enterprise whether they are on-premise, in the cloud, or any hybrid combination.

“Cyber Defense Magazine spent six months searching the globe to find the most innovative and cutting-edge cybersecurity companies for our Cyber Defense 2018 Global Awards,” said Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher, Cyber Defense Magazine. “N8 Identity won this award for NextGen Identity Management because it is an innovator on a mission to help stop breaches and get one step ahead of the next threat, proactively.”

TheAccessHub offers an entirely new approach to Identity Governance. Featuring an AI-driven recommendation engine, TheAccessHub is mobile-ready and accessible from any device, anywhere. Since it runs on Microsoft Azure, it natively plugs into Office 365, Active Directory, and Azure B2C environments seamlessly. It also integrates easily into other cloud and datacenter applications including Salesforce, G Suite (formerly Google Apps), ServiceNow, SAP, Box, and many others. Unlike many identity governance platforms on the market today that require months to deploy, TheAccessHub Enterprise requires little to no customization and can be deployed in days. This ensures that organizations can connect their entire set of systems into their governance programs rather than a select few.

“We are excited to be recognized by Cyber Defense Magazine for our innovation in Identity Management,” said Jay O’Donnell, CEO of N8 Identity. “We are getting closer to our vision of Autonomous Identity Governance as we continue to engineer our AI-driven IG solutions.”

In addition to its AI-driven recommendation engine, which provides insight and guidance to help decision makers make more informed choices, TheAccessHub features a simple, drag-and-drop interface that makes it easy for even non-technical staff to use. It’s a solution that delivers both fast deployment and superior security and can be deployed without any coding or customization.
