Avatier: Access Governance Must Be Integrated Into IAM Solutions To Reduce Risk, Streamline Access Certification
Automation as a Result of Core IAM Solution Integration Is Key to Simplifying Access Verification Processes and Improving Overall Security
SAN RAMON, Calif. – April 30, 2013 – Avatier Corp., a leader in risk-driven identity management software, recommends organizations look for an access governance solution that integrates with their core identity and access management (IAM) solution to automate all critical access certification processes, like access verification, in “Simplicity Is Key With Access Verifications.”
“Companies compromise productivity and introduce risk into their organization when they invest in an access governance solution that has complex, rarely used features and minimal integration capabilities,” said Nelson Cicchitto, chairman and CEO, Avatier. “Integrating access governance capabilities with core identity and access management solutions is key to ensuring access certification goes beyond simple reporting to performing actions such as automatically revoking inappropriate access based on HR roles.”
Despite the rapid growth of the market, many access governance solutions remain complex and unable to integrate with core identity management solutions. As a result, access certification processes like access verification continue to be a risk-inducing, time-consuming manual process, often requiring numerous spreadsheets and infinite patience. When integrated, access certification processes can leverage entitlement data from the core identity and access management solution, reducing audit ramp-up time, allowing direct access to the approver information for sending emails and enforcing workflow, and ensuring immediate revocation. The result is improved security, reduced risk and more streamlined access certification processes.
