Quantum Secure Named a Cool Vendor by Leading Analyst Firm
Once a year Gartner, Inc., a leading information technology research and advisory company, identifies “Cool Vendors”, companies who are “transforming the way businesses operate and consumers engage with technology.”
Quantum Secure, a provider of enterprise-grade Physical Identity and Access Management (PIAM) solutions, today announced they have been included in the IT/OT Alignment and Integration* category of Gartner’s 2013 list of “Cool Vendors.” The company was also named in Gartner’s Special Report of “Cool Vendors in Asia/Pacific”** 2013 in the same category.
Gartner’s “Cool Vendor” research recognizes smaller, emerging companies that are interesting and unique, and offer highly-original and innovative technology or services that are making a difference in their market. According to Gartner’s report, the rising interest among CIOs and the significance of IT/OT integration are supporting a wave of innovative providers that are helping to ease the integration headaches of the disparate IT and OT architectures.
“Quantum Secure’s growth and achievements in the field of IT/OT alignment and integration are built on our software engineering expertise and an in-depth understanding of how and why the merger of physical and logical security cultures can enhance business operations,” said Ajay Jain, Quantum Secure president and CEO. “We believe the designation by Gartner as a “Cool Vendor” is a hallmark distinction for our brand, and we are extremely honored.”
Today’s security requirements demand a comprehensive security infrastructure that includes both the physical and logical security spectrums. Crucial to this need is an end-to-end solution that manages identities, compliance and events across disparate physical security systems. Quantum Secure’s SAFE suite of software products effectively addresses these challenges with best practice processes that reduce both costs and risks.
