NTT Comware and Atos partner to expand security business in Japan
Partnership aims to offer new hybrid identity lifecycle management automation solution
Tokyo, November 21, 2019 - NTT Comware Corporation and Atos SE have entered a partnership to expand their security business and drive digital transformation across Japan with a focus on the Identity & Access Management (IAM).
- SmartCloud® IAM Solution – compatible with hybrid environments. This includes Evidian Identity Governance and Administration which optimizes users' access to relevant resources while limiting risks.
- Context-Based Authentication Enhancement Solution – this combines NTT Comware's Security Operations Center (SOC) services with Atos' products, such as Evidian Web Access Manager. A combined protocol will automatically intercept unauthorized communications and identities detected via NTT Comware's SOC services, which allows security measures to be implemented quickly and efficiently.
"We are extremely pleased to have this opportunity with NTT Comware to further deepen our decade-long collaboration in Japan. With this partnership, we aim to further strengthen the development of the Evidian Identity and Access Management suite (which includes Evidian Identity Governance and Administration) to reach more Japanese enterprises and customers." said Pierre Barnabé, Senior Executive Vice President, Head of Big Data & Security at Atos.
NTT Comware plans on providing Hybrid IDaaS (ID as a Service), powered by Atos' IAM products, by the first quarter of 2021. Product web page (Japanese language only): https://sc.nttcom.co.jp/smartcloud-si/security/id
