Dell Software  today announced that  Quest Software, now a part of Dell, is
positioned in the Challengers quadrant of the2012 Gartner Magic Quadrantfor
Identity and Access Governance (IAG). Dell Quest’s position in the quadrant is
based on its completeness of vision and ability to execute for Identity and
Access Management and the current IAG functionality incorporated into Quest®
One Identity Manager, part of Quest One Identity Solutions.

The report, issued on December 17, 2012, evaluates a vendor’s ability to
execute, including the ability to enable IT providers’ and business users’
performance to be competitive, efficient and effective, and to positively
impact revenue, retention and reputation. Vendors also are judged on their
ability and success in capitalizing on their vision. Quest One Identity
Solutions enable access governance, privileged account management, identity
administration, and user activity monitoring — today’s most pressing identity
and access challenges.

“We believe our position in the Challengers quadrant underscores our evolving
mission to provide our customers with exceptional quality, user experience,
and service levels, as well as low cost of ownership and business value,” said
John Milburn, vice president and general manager, Quest Identity and Access
Management, Dell Software. “We will continue to innovate while we execute on

business owner (not IT) to govern employees’ access to business-critical
information by providing the right users with the right access for just the
right amount of time, while ensuring the organization continues to operate in
a secure and compliant manner.
