Howdy folks,

Today I share with you the cool news that for the third year in a row, Gartner has positioned Microsoft in the Leaders Quadrant in the 2019 Magic Quadrant for Access Management, Worldwide, based on our completeness of vision and ability to execute in the access management market. Find out why in a complimentary copy of the report here.



We believe this placement reflects Microsoft’s core mission in identity – offer products and services that meet customers where they are at today while innovating to address the challenges of the future. We thank our customers for helping us understand their business priorities and co-creating solutions that meet their needs and we thank our partners for openly extending the identity ecosystem to cover any customer scenario. Your support has helped us build better products and continuously innovate to serve you.

We are humbled by your trust and I can’t wait to see what we build together in the coming year.


Best Regards,
