Sidebar: Identity Management Software Vendors

Several vendors today offer products under the identity management umbrella. Broadly speaking, the products fall into three main categories: Web access management products, user account-provisioning tools and password management technologies.

No one vendor offers a complete suite of identity management products. But many vendors are partnering to offer users interoperable products that combine to provide all three functions.
