Research: Microsoft named a Leader in 2023 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Access Management

2023 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Access Management




Gartner® has recently released the much-anticipated Magic Quadrant for Access Management, promising new insights into strategic views and Vendor market positioning across the Identity industry.

The research provides a compreFigure 1 from the 2023 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Access Management showing a quadrant with positions of vendors divided into four sections of the quadrant and labeled 'Challengers', 'Leaders', 'Niche Players', and 'Visionaries' hensive overview of the Strengths and Cautions of Leaders, Challengers, Niche Players and Visionaries in the industry. Microsoft has been recognised as a Leader in the Magic Quadrant for the 7th year, and we believe the comprehensive Identity and Access Management products under the Entra product family demonstrate the strength and scale of a full multicloud solution.

In our opinion, this recognition underscores Microsoft’s commitment to providing organisations with pioneering IAM solutions that safeguard and streamline digital assets and user access.

Microsoft Entra‘s comprehensive portfolio of solutions, encompassing Azure AD, Azure AD External Identities, Entra Verified ID, and Entra Workload ID, address the evolving needs of modern organisations.

Decentralised identity, Machine Identity Management and Security Posture Management are just a few of the innovative features that set Microsoft Entra apart, enabling organisations to securely manage identities across hybrid and multi-cloud environments, protect their applications from evolving threats, and gain deeper insights into their security posture.


It is brilliant to see Microsoft recognised as a Leader in the 2023 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Access Management for the seventh year in a row! rated IAM capabilities, competitive pricing, and industry-leading threat reporting and ITDR capabilities have proven their leadership in IAM solutions.

Paired with their deep integration with Microsoft 365 and Azure, and we believe the strengths and cautions highlighted in the Magic Quadrant make Microsoft Entra a compelling choice for organisations looking for complete and secure identity and access management solutions.

In our years integrating Microsoft Azure AD B2C (now part of Entra External ID), our customers with large scale and complex requirements have gone from strength to strength using the products, and some are now in a place in their identity journey where they are looking to further evolve, delving into the world of decentralised identity through the power of Microsoft Verified ID further enhanced by our Credential Gateway solution.
