One of the World's Largest Energy Companies Selects Calgary-Based Hitachi ID Identity Management Suite for Global Deployment

CALGARY, Alberta, June 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Calgary-based Hitachi ID Systems is pleased to announce that it was selected to provide identity management solutions for a multi-billion dollar energy company based out of Texas. Hitachi ID participated in a rigorous year-long selection process and won the business handily as the broadest, most robust and scalable offering.

"We demonstrated how our solutions perfectly address their needs and IDM concerns," says Gideon Shoham, CEO of Hitachi ID Systems. "Their selection of the Hitachi ID Identity Management Suite was driven by the strength and robust features demonstrated during the lengthy RFP and POC process."

The energy company used an incumbent identity management system which did not meet their needs, and searched for a more suitable solution able to service more than 20,000 employees in approximately 30 countries. Hitachi ID solutions address a number of critical issues like very high call volume to the help desk, audit and regulatory requirements and a central, simplified, provisioning and deprovisioning for staff and contractor access to their systems.
