LEADING INDUSTRY ANALYST FIRM PLACES FISCHER INTERNATIONAL IDENTITY IN "VISIONARIES" QUADRANT IN USER PROVISIONING MAGIC QUADRANT

Naples, FL (September 5, 2007) -- Fischer International Identity, providers of The Technology for Managed Identity Services™, has been positioned in the “Visionaries” quadrant in Gartner's "Magic Quadrant for User Provisioning, 2H07" written by Earl Perkins and Roberta Witty, and published August 23, 2007. Fischer is positioned in the Visionary quadrant due to their ability to execute and completeness of vision.

Fischer differentiates itself from other user provisioning vendors by enabling Identity Management to be delivered by service providers, global outsourcers, and internal shared services organizations via their client’s preferred sourcing strategy, whether as a hosted, SaaS, or on-premise Managed Identity Service™, or as a traditional deployment.

Fischer’s technology provides substantial benefits and enables new opportunities for both end-user organizations and service providers. “Fischer Identity removes barriers that prevent Identity Management from being outsourced securely and affordably, so that organizations can more easily address their top-priority security initiative in the way that best meets their business needs,” said Renee’ Bacherman, CEO Fischer International Identity. “Our technology conforms to any business process, procurement strategy, and deployment mode, and accommodates clients of all sizes and across all industries. It is software as it should be, a business asset not a technical challenge.”
