Identity and Access Management Solutions

Overview

Identity and Access Management is a discipline aimed at ensuring that all users and devices are properly identified, that their affiliation to an organization is understood and that they have proper access to information assets.

IAM Landscape Graphic

Threats and risks inevitably arise from the failure of an organization to put into place policies, processes and technologies that effectively execute this discipline.

Wherever policy definition and enforcement are not centralized; workflow and notification processes are not unified; or the creation, modification and termination of accounts are manually fulfilled by various teams; the impact is often a significant difficulty in assessing who has access to what across vast ecosystems. Manual, disjointed processes lead to errors, productivity loss and significant confusion surrounding credential lifecycle management.

Compliance requirements, and the associated audit process validations and remedies, compound the detrimental impact. Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) and Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) affect virtually every industry. HIPAA, FISMA, the NIST Security Lifecycle, and the Critical Infrastructure Protection Standards, directly affect healthcare, government and virtually every industrial sector.

Additional complexity caused by legacy technologies, privileged accounts, cloud migration, next generation devices, federated interoperability and operational technologies, further compound the challenges of Identity & Access Management.

Solution

Implementing cohesive, centralized policy interaction, with credentialing integrity and efficiency via automation, is the cornerstone of effective Identity & Access Management. The resulting benefits include: an increased security posture, regulatory compliance, decreased administrative costs, and a competitive advantage through facilitated business.

  • Suggest entitlements for new and existing users based on similar users’ attributes and job roles
  • Hide “off-limits” entitlements for certain sensitive entitlements that users should not be able to request or obtain
  • Provide a single, centralized, business-user friendly system by which end users can request access and which enforces policies and approval processes
Addressing the challenges of rapidly evolving advanced persistent threats, compliance, legacy complexity and the demands for effective enterprise IAM business solutions.
