Gartner has positioned Microsoft in the Leaders Quadrant in
the 2016 Magic Quadrant for Identity and Access Management as a Service, based
on its completeness of vision and ability to execute in the IDaaS market.
Microsoft is currently the only vendor to be positioned as a
Leader across Gartner’s Magic Quadrants for Identity as a Service, Cloud
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Server Virtualization, Application Platform
as a Service, Cloud Storage Services, and as a leader across the data platform
and productivity services.
Gartner believes this validates Microsoft as a leader across the
full spectrum of cloud computing - with easily integrated offerings across
cloud infrastructure services, platform services, SaaS, data analytics and
Microsoft's Azure Active Directory Premium offering provides
features that are in line with other web-centric IDaaS providers, and includes
licenses for Azure Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA). It also includes licenses
for Microsoft Identity Manager (MIM) that are to be used with customers'
on-premises systems. Microsoft also offers Azure Active Directory Premium as
part of its Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS), along with Microsoft Intune EMM
and Azure Rights Management, and the on-premises-based Advanced Threat
Microsoft continues to
leverage its current and substantial customer base for Office 365 and other
products to add Azure Active Directory and EMS to contracts. The vendor has
broad and deep marketing, sales and support capabilities, and it has been
pricing EMS low, which has put significant pressure on other IDaaS players.
The vendor has already
demonstrated high scalability with Azure Active Directory. The service
underpins other Microsoft Azure services.
Microsoft has a strong
international presence for its service offerings, and continues to expand its
IaaS presence worldwide.
Through acquisition and
development, the vendor has demonstrated advancement of its strategy to secure
identities, data and devices.
demonstrates a strong understanding of the technology, socioeconomic, security
and jurisdictional trends that will shape its offerings going forward.
The Azure Active Directory
B2C and B2B Collaboration subservices were in public preview (beta) at the time
our analysis was performed. These offerings will likely need time to mature
relative to competition with established B2C and B2B use-case support.
"bridge" components for synchronization and federated SSO are now
managed under one umbrella component, Azure Active Directory Connect. However,
based on Gartner client interactions, these components generally need more
infrastructure and more effort to manage than competitors' bridge technology.
Microsoft can manage the
transition of organizations with multiple Active Directory forests to one
tenant of Office 365; however, Gartner client feedback is that this transition
is easier with competitors' IDaaS offerings.
Microsoft lags behind
competitors in the number of apps it can provision to, as well as the depth of
SaaS account fulfillment that supports the provisioning of roles, groups and
Data breaches caused by malicious insiders and malicious code can take
as long 50 days or more to fix, according to Ponemon Institute's 2015 Cost of
Cyber Crime Study while malware, viruses, worms, Trojans, and botnets take only
an estimated 2-5 days to fix.
Unsurprisingly, attacks by malicious insiders are also the costliest to
fix ($145,000 according to the Ponemon study), followed by denial of service
($127,000) and Web-based attacks ($96,000).
The consequences and cost of cyber-attacks are also unevenly
distributed, with business disruption and information loss taking the biggest
share, followed by revenue loss and equipment damages, according to Ponemon.
But the cost of remediation in person-days can also be substantial. Involvement
of a programmer, a QA person, project manager, product manager and corporate
lawyer will cost you more than $300 per employee per day, according to data
from payscale.com — and that's before you consider the cost of the CEO, CISO
and CFO's time.
