NextLabs Scores Highest Marks in KuppingerCole Dynamic Authorization Management and Enterprise Information Protection Market Compass Reports

Only vendor to receive the highest ratings in two different KuppingerCole reports

San Mateo, Calif. – July 27, 2020 –NextLabs today announced that it has received the highest marks in two different KuppingerCole Market Compass reports.  These reports analyzed the Dynamic Authorization Management and Enterprise Information Protection markets and rated vendors on their Security, Usability, Deployment, Policy Administration, and Architecture capabilities, among others.

Dynamic Authorization Management solutions enable enterprises to enforce fine-grained, consistent access control policies across the organization to protect sensitive data.  These solutions externalize access control decisions to a centrally managed authorization service that evaluates access policies in real-time to allow or deny access requests for data.

“The NextLabs Dynamic Authorization Platform takes a unique 4GL approach to policy administration and provides strong analytics to support compliance requirements. Out-of-the-box integration with the main cloud environments, and connectors to SAP and the major enterprise applications, facilitates deployment of the solution,” said Graham Williamson, Senior Analyst at KuppingerCole and author of the report. “A history in regulated industries such as Aerospace & Defense or Life Sciences ensures that the solution has the necessary certifications and regulatory compliance required for high assurance environments. Development of the CloudAz managed service is a major focus for NextLabs.” NextLabs provides comprehensive enforcement capabilities covering API access, application access, data access, cloud access, and infrastructure access use cases.

Enterprise Information Protection solutions aim to overcome an organization’s challenges around protecting business-critical data due to the mass migration to remote work, the need to manage user access to sensitive data, the increasing need to accommodate sharing of protected information, and stringent regulations protecting personally identifiable information (PII). Global supply chains and joint projects are driving enterprises to increase collaboration with external partners and to share sensitive information outside of the organization. This requires the ability to securely share documents in use with fine-grained control over any user’s access to or manipulation of information in that document. Rights management encryption, key management, and a policy framework for the definition and enforcement of usage and access controls are key features of Enterprise Information Protection offerings.

According to the Market Compass report, NextLabs is featured for its product capabilities and highlighted for its “well-rounded product offering.”  NextLabs’ on-premises and cloud options are powered by its patented dynamic authorization technology where policies are enforced by evaluating subject, environmental, resource attributes, and the action to be performed in real-time.  Its core functionality includes capabilities for rights management, data classification, and project-based collaboration to provide end-to-end application protection for collaboration and protection of critical data.
