NetIQ identity, security and governance

Last Updated: 23rd April, 2013

NetIQ offers identity and access governance, access management and security management technologies. 

NetIQ's identity and access management capabilities are largely based on Novell's products, which suffered reduced sales and brand perception issues in recent years. New developments recently in 2013 have seen a greater focus on cloud and mobile applications, as well as social access, that add to its existing capabilities. Some of its capabilities are based on licence agreements with other vendors. NetIQ has a core focus on compliance and standards support and has long been especially active in the US federal sector with a good client roster and this will serve it well as it builds out its cloud capabilities further.
