Analyst Coverage: Fran Howarth
Aveksa takes a business-driven approach to identity and access governance as lines of business can better understand what entitlements are appropriate than IT or security. It recognises the importance of the intelligence that can be gleaned from big data and integrates SIEM and log management capabilities from partners and can pull in data from multiple sources into its own database, although those partnerships could be extended.
Aimed primarily at the mid-market, it has an expanding geographic presence and customer base, and has shown high levels of growth recently. Its cloud and mobility strategy are relatively new and evolving, although it has shown much innovation recently and further developments will be seen. Aveksa states that it is currently looking for additional funding or, potentially, an IPO.
