Novell to demonstrate leading identity and security management solutions as part of its HP customer migration program
Novell today announced its participation in the 2008 HP Software Universe conference, booth 251, June 16–19 at The Venetian Resort Hotel Casino in Las Vegas. Through demonstrations and presentations, customers will learn how enterprises can mitigate risk and meet compliance mandates with Novell® identity and security management solutions.
Novell's participation at HP Software Universe builds on the recently announced exclusive program between the companies, which provides Novell identity and security management solutions to HP Identity Center customers with license credit from Novell, and joint services from both companies.
"Novell has been a well established identity and access management solutions provider and HP's decision to partner with Novell is seen as a positive strategic move in a crowded marketplace," said Irida Xheneti, research analyst for Security Services and Identity Management at IDC. "Through this alliance, HP will be able to focus on the services business, while their identity and access management product customers will be able to take advantage of Novell's well established identity and security management solutions, as well as their wide partner ecosystem. For the customers that choose to opt out of the migration, they will continue to be supported by HP."
At HP Software Universe, Novell will be demonstrating its integrated portfolio of identity and security management solutions, which recently won the Best Security Solution category for the 2008 CODiE Awards, an annual program of the Software Industry and Information Association (SIIA) that recognizes achievement and vision in the software industry. With 6,000 customers worldwide and a robust ecosystem of partners, Novell identity and security management solutions help enterprises defend against increasing security threats and meet compliance in a complex and heterogeneous IT environment.
