Naples, FL (August 21, 2008) -- Fischer International Identity, providers of The Technology for Managed Identity Services™, has been positioned by Gartner Inc. in the Visionaries quadrant in the 2008 User Provisioning Magic Quadrant report 1 based on their completeness of vision and ability to execute.

Complex problems are best solved by simple solutions. That is the basis for everything we do.
