“With organizations increasingly using access management solutions to improve their security, it is important to distinguish between typical access management offerings and adaptive access management,” said Amit Jasuja, vice president, Oracle Identity Management. “Oracle Adaptive Access Manager 10g R3 delivers dynamic context-aware data, such as geographic location data, that profiles behavior in real-time to detect and mitigate risk whereas traditional access management software is limited to providing static information such as a user’s role and privileges.”
“With the new release of Oracle Adaptive Access Manager, Oracle emphasizes its innovation and role as one of the leaders in the identity and access management and GRC markets,” said Martin Kuppinger, founder and senior partner, Kuppinger Cole and Partner. “Using dynamic context information for decisions in Access Management solutions provides more granular control of authentication and authorization, going beyond the typical ‘binary’ yes/no decisions. This is much more adequate for today’s organizations and their requirements in security and risk management.”
