Enterprise access management is more demanding than ever
Access and authorization management in companies is a considerable time and cost factor; the implementation and maintenance of an identity and access management solution involves a significant investment. The technical landscape of organizations is ever-changing, and the number of remote employees has never been greater. More than ever, users need to be able to access their necessary data and applications from anywhere in a targeted and secure manner. Furthermore, applicable security regulations and current legal requirements must be taken into consideration at the same time. An IT department cannot meet these requirements by individual, non-integrated local solutions and manual processes.
Automated provisioning of user identities and authorizations
Identity Manager from One Identity reduces the complexity of access management through central administration and automation of processes by bundling all security-relevant policies and processes in one place. With the help of the dashboard function, for example, on-demand or routine confirmations can be scheduled and the status of group or distribution lists can be displayed in a clear overview. Central administration and automation of processes reduces the workload in the IT department. One Identity Manager transforms the IT department from an access management bottleneck to a business enabler. Employees of the individual business units are responsible and empowered to implement processes in the most effective and efficient way.
Self-service access portal and password manager
The self-service access portal is a special feature of Identity Manager, because no one knows better when they need access to certain applications than the employees themselves. Based on predefined approval processes and workflows, users can use the "online shopping cart" to request access rights and authorizations, as well as inclusion in group and distribution lists. Additionally, the functional scope of Identity Manager can be expanded with the help of numerous supplementary modules. For example, Password Manager allows employees to independently reset the passwords of their user accounts after the company-specific password policies for the various user roles have been centrally defined and stored. This saves money and improves user satisfaction, as there is no need to go to the IT department for simple password management

„In many companies, access management ties up too many personnel resources for a system landscape that is often quite heterogeneous and hybrid, especially in the IT department. By centralizing administration and automating processes, One Identity Manager significantly reduces the cost and complexity of access management. Identity Manager empowers organizations to ensure they provide the access level actually required for employees in accordance with the company’s security regulations. This applies throughout the entire identity lifecycle, regardless of whether the user is joining, changing or leaving the company."
