Quest Software Acquires Symlabs To Further Build IAM Offering

Symlabs also brings additional federated identity capabilities

ALISO VIEJO, Calif., June 6, 2011

News Facts:

Quest Software, Inc. (Nasdaq: QSFT) today announced that it has acquired Symlabs, a privately held solutions provider that specializes in virtual directories and identity management solutions. The acquisition further extends the Quest' One Identity Solution to add strong middleware technology capabilities. The addition of Symlabs virtual directory software will enable Quest products to easily consolidate identity data that is stored in the distributed environment. Symlabs also brings additional federated identity capabilities that will broaden the single sign-on solutions to create a secure, trusted environment out of multiple systems in a single enterprise, or from systems across multiple enterprises. Quest One simplifies identity and access management (IAM) to increase security, efficiency and compliance by unifying identities, roles, workflows, and approvals around existing IAM infrastructures and best practices. It enables compliance through access control and segregation of duties, with complete visibility and control driven by identity intelligence and business objectives. Additional Quest One technologies making strides include: Identity Intelligence – Quest One Identity Manager (formerly Voelcker ActiveEntry) has been updated to include a Wysiwyg-like mail editor; and approval workflow enhancements for reminder, timeout, escalation, and integration with Quest Webthority for single sign-on. Organizations can have a 360-degree view and complete control of IAM through a unified approach and a flexible IAM structure. Multifactor Authentication – Symlabs virtual directory technology has already proven successful, as it allows Quest Defender to be installed in proof-of-concept or in production without the need for a schema extension. In addition, Defender now has user self-registration for software tokens, simplifying the deployment of multifactor authentication across the enterprise and decreasing implementation time and costs. Active Directory Bridge – Quest has been awarded two additional U.S. patents for technology in this product: 7,895,332 “Identity migration system apparatus and method,” and 7,904,949 “Apparatus, systems and methods to provide authentication services to a legacy application.”

Quote:

Jackson Shaw, senior director of product management, Quest Software

“Symlabs has a strong history of eliminating complex integration problems quickly and inexpensively, and its virtual directory technology makes it a great fit for Quest One and our approach to simplifying IAM for IT and the business. This investment, as well as the recent patents, availability of Quest One Identity Manager and continued investment in multifactor authentication, continues to drive the new wave of IAM for our current and future customers.”
