In today's world of rapid, constant change, many organizations struggle to address the increased access demands of the business. Current solutions for requesting and managing user access are outdated and inefficient. Processes are disjointed and don't map succinctly to the core business processes driving changes within the enterprise. To solve today's identity management challenges, organizations need a consistent and compliant approach across all enterprise applications – including SaaS and cloud-based applications. That's where IdentityIQ Lifecycle Manager comes in.
IdentityIQ Lifecycle Manager empowers business users to manage changes to user access in a policy-controlled environment. It streamlines the front-end business processes of user onboarding, transfers and promotions, and offboarding or termination. It supports both user-initiated access requests and automatic event-driven access changes – underpinned by a common role, policy, and risk model.
By centralizing and managing access request processes within the constraints of a pre-defined governance model, Lifecycle Manager enhances an organization's security and compliance posture and creates transparency for audit-related inquiries.
With Lifecycle Manager, organizations can:
- Enable business users to independently request and manage access
- Speed delivery of access using automated event triggers
- Centralize access request and change processes across disparate "last-mile" provisioning processes
- Improve audit performance and risk posture with preventive policy enforcement
- Gain complete visibility to process execution and service level monitoring
- Streamline IT operations and offload IT and help desk
Lifecycle Manager includes the following components:
- Self-Service Access Request – Empowers users to easily request and manage access through a policy-driven "shopping cart" interface
- Password Management – Enables users to quickly change or reset their passwords without having to contact the help desk
- Lifecycle Event Management – Automates changes to access across the lifecycle of a user (e.g., onboarding, promotion or transfer,offboarding) based on configurable event triggers
- Process Assembler – Dynamically constructs individual workflow instances based on predefined business processes each time a change to user access is initiated
