About Elimity

Elimity is a high-tech B2B software company based in Mechelen.

We are an innovator in the area of managing the IT permissions of employees, also known as Identity and Access Management (IAM). Extremely technical tools and brittle Excel processes have been dominating this area for a long time. This situation is costly and insecure, and the regulator is starting to actively fine banks for not being in control.

We provide a data analytics software product specifically for IAM that instantly gives the responsible managers essential insights on the risks and conflicts of their digital identities. Our product helps our customers to withstand the regulatory pressure and be resilient for tomorrow’s cyber challenges.
