Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
By acquiring TruLogica, HP joins IBM and Novell with a presence in the identity management market.Not wanting to be left behind by rivals IBM, Novell Inc. and others in the security game, Hewlett-Packard Co. on Thursday announced that it has agreed to acquire TruLogica Inc., a small identity management vendor.
The terms of the deal were not disclosed.
TruLogica, based in Dallas, is known in the industry for taking an innovative approach to the problem of identity management and user provisioning. The company's flagship product, Concero, uses a customer's business as the model for granting user privileges and access rights, rather than relying on each user's role to define their identity. The system is designed to simplify and automate the provisioning process.
