KuppingerCole noted that EmpowerID "takes a unique approach to IAM/IAG. It is built from scratch on a Business Process Management/Workflow platform" and the ability to modify and create visually designed workflows, "allows for great flexibility, while the product also delivers a broad set of out-of-the-box features."

Among top product leaders, EmpowerID differentiates itself by its innovative "everything is a workflow" approach to Identity and Access Management. Of EmpowerID, KuppingerCole stated "EmpowerID is a very interesting and innovative solution. It provides a well thought-out and flexible approach for Cloud IAM/IAG with strong Identity Federation and authentication support."

KuppingerCole also assigned EmpowerID the strongest ratings possible for the security, interoperability and usability subcategories of the Leadership Compass report.

The strength of EmpowerID's industry leading Identity and Access Management, Governance and Privileged Access Management feature set is derived from its all-in-one approach.
