San Francisco, CA, United States, 2013/09/25 - When it comes to governance, organizations need to provide users with quick and easy access to the systems they need to perform their jobs while also managing its risk and compliance obligation to ensure such access is as restrictive as possible. NYSE, NASDAQ: ORCL
To achieve this balance, organizations need to deliver intuitive ways for users to request and provision access to systems and applications, appropriate policies and processes to approve such access, simplify ways for managers to confirm that such access is appropriate and check and certify that access is properly assigned. Oracle now provides the industry’s only complete Identity Governance solution that enables organizations to efficiently balance the objectives of access, security, and compliance, while enabling user self services to reduce total cost of ownership.
Oracle today announces the industry’s most complete identity governance architecture to help optimize the user identity experience, streamline governance, improved performance and lower total cost of ownership.
In its latest release of Oracle Identity and Access Management, Oracle brings enhancements to Oracle Identity Governance, a single governance solution combining provisioning, analytics and privileged account management that can reduce the time to certify accounts by 30 percent when compared with running separate tools.
By deploying a single solution organizations can eliminate the cost of integrating multiple tools and improve the deployment time by 20 percent when compared to deploying multiple solutions.
With a single dashboard for privileged user management, access certification and user provisioning organizations can gain economies by giving a single group of administrators complete governance visibility.
Improving User Experience, Reducing Cost, Streamlining Compliance
The latest version of Oracle Identity Governance Suite includes:
• Identity Auditor: a single, integrated tool that provides governance so organizations can have the latest entitlement data in the review process, avoiding pitfalls of stale data. It combines provisioning data store and the certification data store into a single repository so real time provisioning changes are always updated in the certification campaigns.
• Improved UI: significant improvements in the Oracle Identity Governor User Interface and Lifecycle Management capabilities, giving customers much greater flexibility to customize the look and feel of the business facing interface; additionally it includes performance improvements and organizations are safe in the knowledge that their customizations are upgraded safely and easily carried forward.
• Access Request Catalogue: customers can now leverage the Access Request Catalogue to manage fine grained application access, and enforce it using XACML-compliant policies; through Identity Auditor enterprises can then certify that access allowing them to secure systems, such as content management systems like Microsoft SharePoint.
• Showcasing its commitment to interoperability, Oracle also certified Oracle Identity Governance Suite on both Oracle Weblogic and IBM WebSphere.
“All of the new enhancements in the latest release of Oracle Identity and Access Management are further proof points to Oracle’s platform approach to identity management where organizations can reduce cost, reduce audit exposure and improve responsiveness,” said Marc Boroditsky, vice president of Identity Management at Oracle. “By rationalizing the architecture, we have removed gaps that would have required integration, enabling these components to be interoperable.”
