Winterhawk Announces Partnership with Hitachi ID Systems

21 September 2020 — Winterhawk is pleased to announce a new partnership with Hitachi ID Systems. Hitachi ID, based in Calgary, Canada, is a leader in Identity and Access Management (IAM) software with decades of deep domain experience.

Hitachi ID’s comprehensive Identity Management and Access Governance, Privileged Access Management (PAM) and Password Management solutions enable organisations to rapidly establish automated processes for User Access Management including controlling and tracking system administrators’ activities. As a global reseller and implementor, Winterhawk’s experts can flexibly and cost-effectively deploy Hitachi ID solutions individually or together, through on-premise or SaaS models.

Andrew Sawyer, Chief Operations Officer at Winterhawk said: “Organisations of all sizes, across all sectors, face challenges in appropriately and effectively managing Identity and Access Management. If you get it right, you can provide a fantastic Customer Experience (CX); if you get it wrong, it’s a whole world of frustration, lost productivity, high costs and audit failures.

Through an in-depth analysis of the market, reviewing multiple solution vendors, Winterhawk’s management team rated Hitachi ID as the leading vendor in IAM, based on criteria including architectural considerations, pricing, scalability, functionality, user friendliness, and company reputation.

We are delighted to form a global partnership with Hitachi ID and believe their portfolio of solutions will bring tremendous value to many of our existing clients.”

“Cybersecurity threats, complexity and costs continue to rise in the enterprise IT landscape,” says Colin Duffy, SVP, Hitachi ID Systems. “Winterhawk’s global security consulting expertise and extensive knowledge of Hitachi ID’s single platform for identity, privileged access, password and group management make them an excellent partner to help organisations through their digital identity and access maturation.”
