KuppingerCole names AdNovum Product Leader for NEVIS

KuppingerCole names the Swiss software company AdNovum Product Leader for its tried and tested NEVIS Security Suite in the Leadership Compass for Access Management and Federation.

Thanks to its NEVIS Security Suite, analyzed for the first time for the KuppingerCole Leadership Compass in 2013, the Swiss software company AdNovum was again named Product Leader in the area of Access Management and Federation this year.

KuppingerCole is a globally active, leading European company for market analyses in the area of information security and digital transformation. In the latest Leadership Compass Access Management and Federation, KuppingerCole examined 15 on-premise platforms for web access management and identity federation from regional and global vendors. The authors emphasize the NEVIS Security Suite's well-defined architecture, which smoothly integrates into the back end of other services, as well as its sound session management and high level of security. In addition, they consider NEVIS' flexibility and support of identity federation standards a major plus. Another strength of the product is the support of a broad range of authentication mechanisms, among them some of the most recent methods of both behavior and physiology-based biometrics. The authors also positively mention the continuous further development, e.g. the FIDO UAF 1.1 support for the authentication server, the mobile SDK for iOS and Android as well as the deployment support with Ansible and Docker. The good rating is also reflected in the various criteria of the product ratings: in the functionality area integration, AdNovum received the distinction positive for NEVIS. In the areas of security, functionality, interoperability and usability, it received the excellent distinction strong positive.

Stephan Schweizer, Chief Product Officer NEVIS at AdNovum and Managing Director of NEVIS Security GmbH: “We are very pleased to again receive an award from KuppingerCole. By naming us Product Leader for NEVIS, the globally active analyst organization confirms our consistent focus on current and emerging market needs and standards.”
