In today’s business world, information security is often a prime factor of success. However, the need to safeguard financial information and other sensitive data must be balanced with providing necessary access to information and resources across your organization’s technology environments. To complicate matters, this balancing act must also adhere to strict compliance requirements.
The solution? Identity and Access Management.
Identity and Access Management (IAM) solutions are designed to provide you with centralized visibility and control, allowing you to actively measure and monitor the risks inherent in a system that must match up users and resources. We’ve put together a list of the top five IAM solutions that can be implemented in your organization.
The Courion Access Assurance Suite is a consistent performer in the IAM arena. Their suite consists of several modules that can also be licensed separately, with each module performing a specific function. The modules include account management, self-service password management, access request management, compliance management, access by role management and analytics software.
The Oracle Identity Governance Suite is particularly suited for large organizations. It is a comprehensive solution that utilizes analytics to address privileged account management, user administration and identity intelligence.
IBM Security Identity Governance and Administration is a suite that combines their Security Identity Manager and their Security Identity Governance system (based on the recently acquired CrossIdeas platform). This IAM solution includes user access management, identity management and governance, and regulatory compliance evaluation.
RSA, the Security Division of EMC, offers RSA Identity Management and Governance, which is a modular, independently licensed solution. Last year, they acquired Aveska, one of the pioneers of Identity Governance and Management. Their modules include access certification management, access request management, data access governance and business role management.
SailPoint is a pioneer of identity and access governance technology and offers the best identity and access management solution available. Gartner® has named SailPoint a leader in the “Magic Quadrant for Identity Governance and Administration,” and Deloitte has named SailPoint the fastest growing IAM company in North America for two consecutive years. The SailPoint IdentityIQ system, along with its optional modules, provides exceptional access certification and role management features. Uniquely, SailPoint IdentityIQ is designed for on-premise deployment but also serves as a staged on-ramp to the cloud.
