In today’s interconnected marketplace, organizations are challenged more than ever to address regulatory controls and compliance mandates. They also must control access to key resources to protect their data and intellectual properties, being at the same time unique and innovative. For that purpose, it is critical to create effective methodologies, tools, and workflows for managing access and proper identity administration across the enterprise.
And talking about a solution for securing the company sensitive information and network, comes the question concerning all: How do you manage all of your enterprises’ identities? Do you stay in compliance with regulatory mandates and do you adhere to high standards of privacy and protection?
This is where Identity Governance and Intelligence solutions come in. They are designed to help enterprise IT departments automate their identity workflows, manage manage identities and application access and to stay in compliance with thorough reporting. Besides, Identity governance incorporates measurable access risk controls that helps to set policies and to better drive activities such as access review, privilege management and the management of separation of duties. It provides an integrated, streamlined approach for managing user roles, access policies and risk, ensuring that appropriate levels of access are applied and enforced across enterprise and cloud applications. The solution automates the administration of user access privileges across an organization’s resources, throughout the entire identity management lifecycle.
Use of IGI
Within the enterprise and between enterprises, the users require access to the systems and data necessary to perform their jobs. Most businesses outsource services and work directly with partners and suppliers, that’s why they are faced with the additional problem of giving access to people outside of the organization. No matter where the employee is located and whatever organization they are part of, their access needs to be managed and precisely controlled to lower the risk of fraud and ensure compliance. Governing the way this access is assigned, managed and monitored, is essential activity for the security of the business.
Organizations are obliged to comply with the increasing range of laws and regulations. Proving compliance requires an audit to confirm that the access to this data is properly managed. When there is a lack of good identity governance, these audits can be time consuming and expensive.
The use of mobile phones, tablets and other devices by employees and partners to access company’s systems and data creates a new set of risks. Identity and access governance can help to manage these access related risks. Auditing access rights and controlling the different kinds of duties can be very difficult without the appropriate identity governance tools. These complexities appear when a person performs more than one role.
