GlobalSign IAM-Easy™ Wins Govies 2015 Award as Outstanding User Authentication & Identification Product

More Accolades for GlobalSign’s Innovative IAM Approach that Streamlines Deployment,
Enables New Revenue Models, Reduces Customer Care Costs and Improves End-user Experiences

BOSTON, MA -- April 15, 2015 – GMO GlobalSign (https://www.globalsign.com/en/), a leading provider of identity services for online transactions, and the security division of Tokyo-based GMO Internet Group, today announced that its GlobalSign IAM-Easy preconfigured identity and access management (IAM) solution was a winner in The Govies Government Security Awards 2015 in the User Authentication, Identification, Credentialing and Management category.  

GlobalSign IAM-Easy is a pre-configured deployment model of the complete GlobalSign IAM solution suite that is coupled with best practices. This dramatically simplifies the management of customer and partner identities and their access to customer-facing applications and services -- and allows deployment in as little as four weeks, instead of the typical six month of traditional IAM implementations. GlobalSign IAM-Easy truly makes it easy for organizations to register users, offer self-service identity management and multiple levels of authentication.  In doing so, it allows organizations to reap the business benefits of an end-to-end IAM solution faster -- including deployment of new revenue models, increased customer loyalty and lower IT costs.  It is available for on-premise and private cloud deployments.

“We’re delighted that GlobalSign IAM-Easy is being recognized as a top solution in our category,” said Joan Lockhart, CMO of GlobalSign.  “It’s a cornerstone of our commitment to provide Identity for Everything™ in a way that simplifies deployment, reduces cost and enables the strongest digital identities and authentication methods for anyone -- and anything – online.”

Security Products magazine, and its Security-Today.com website, sponsor The Govies awards program to honor outstanding government security products in a variety of categories.  A record number of entries were submitted this year.  An independent panel of judges from the security industry selected the top entries in the 2015 categories and named them winners using criteria including Features, Innovation, User Friendliness, Interoperability, Quality, Design, Market Opportunity, and Impact in the Security Industry, Technical Advances, and Scalability.
