The combined offering will provide customers a central orchestration for identities in the entire IT environment. With a secure identity solution, the new foundation is laid for customer employees to have all licenses, assets and accesses from the first working day. The suite integrates with all the leading HR platforms in the market and the combined group will be a leading software security provider with more than 2.5 million managed identities.

Together with SIVIS we provide a one-stop-shop solution for hybrid integrations to both cloud and legacy systems based on Microsoft- and SAP platforms.“

SIVIS customers regularly request a user life cycle management tool and IDM solutions beyond the SAP ecosystem that we can now offer.
