Quest Software has announced the acquisition of Symlabs, a private solutions provider specializing in virtual directories and identity management solutions. The deal will add middleware technology capabilities to the Quest One Identity Solution.
The acquisition will also enable the company to easily consolidate identity data that is stored in the distributed environment.
“This investment continues to drive the new wave of IAM for our current and future customers,“ said Jackson Shaw, senior director of product management for Quest Software.
The addition of Symlabs will bring federated identity capabilities that will broaden single sign-on solutions. This is done in an effort to create a secure environment out of multiple systems in a single enterprise.
