The foundation of a strong and effective security program is to identify and "harden" high value assets. These are the "crown jewels" of a business – the assets most critical to operations and the source of trade and market success.
For many businesses, the software they use is the engine that powers those critical operations. For those using IDM products, rest assured we understand the business imperative of secure computing and have hardened our products to enhance your secure operations. In partnership with CA Veracode, we have invested heavily in application security as well as fortification of our worldwide cloud distribution array to ensure our customers are protected in every aspect of downloading, updating, and using IDM software.
In our opinion, a commercially supported product should also include peace of mind. Thank you for trusting IDM with your computing needs.
