NOVATO, Calif. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Radiant Logic, the market-leading provider of federated identity systems based on virtualization, today announced that the company has joined the Kantara Initiative in support of its Identity Relationship Management (IRM) Pillars. The Kantara Initiative, a global identity initiative community, influences transformative innovation within Identity Management and, along with Radiant Logic, views identity not just as a requirement for IT and security, but as the center of business. Michel Prompt, CEO of Radiant Logic, has also been named to its Board of Trustees.
The recent explosion of devices, mobility, and the “internet of things” challenges the relatively static, traditional model of Identity Management that focused on users, groups, roles and providing access to resources according to policies and governance. Managing the dynamic links that tie today’s technological activities back to users presents both an opportunity and a challenge. Radiant Logic has long touted the idea of context-driven identity as a way to manage those relationships and plans to advance solutions that fully align with Kantara Initiative’s IRM Pillars (http://kantarainitiative.org/irmpillars/), a set of business and technical best practices that are transforming Identity Management.
“Radiant Logic’s unique perspective and technology on managing identity and relationships through the framework of identity virtualization and “digital” context, make it an exciting addition to our community,” said Joni Brennan, Executive Director at Kantara Initiative. “We look forward to including Radiant Logic in our work to change the conversation around identity.”
Kantara Initiative helps organizations establish verified trust in the use of digital identities for business and government services by collaborating with industry leaders to develop and operate trust and interoperability frameworks and programs with global focus and application.
“We are very happy to join the Kantara Initiative community and help advance Identity Relationship Management,” said Michel Prompt, CEO at Radiant Logic. “Whether we’re focused on identity and security, identity and the internet of things, or context and privacy, we want to be sure that we follow best practices and standards at all levels of the infrastructure.”
Radiant Logic joins a host of industry innovators in Kantara Initiative membership, including CA, Experian, Internet Society, ForgeRock, Nomura Research Institute, Terena, and the Government of Canada, among others.
