The right identity and access management solution can integrate with a healthcare provider’s EMR system to help keep sensitive medical data safe—and keep the organization compliant. It can provide valuable insights and visibility into accounts, access privileges and entitlements, across the wide range of users. By closing the gaps in identity protection, organizations can fight the threats of inadvertent misuse and intentional theft that may lead to security breaches.
This white paper examines the compelling business and technical case for centralizing administration in Microsoft's Active Directory, describes how Centrify's integrated architecture enables you to extend Active Directory to your non-Microsoft platforms, and describes the Centrify Suite's unique benefits.
This white paper examines the compelling business and technical case for centralizing administration in Microsoft's Active Directory, using Centrify's DirectControl to extend Active Directory authentication and access control to your UNIX, Linux and Mac OS systems and applications, and using Centrify's DirectAudit to log user activity to provide you a clear picture of end user actions on all UNIX and Linux systems.
This white paper examines the challenges of migrating NIS deployments to a central repository, and explains in detail how a combination of Microsoft Active Directory and Centrify DirectControl can deliver a cost-effective solution that strengthens security while improving IT efficiency.
A software audit can be either an internal process, executed by an in-house team or consultants, or it can be done externally, by the vendor. If done internally, the results are used by the organization to check what software is installed across the network, how the software is being used and how this usage compares with the entitlements owned by the organization. If you haven’t already been audited—get ready; it’s not a case of if, but when.
Identity and access management governance helps determine who has authorized access to what resources, for what purpose and for how long. IAM governance from IBM provides value beyond risk control, with accountability and transparency for user entitlements throughout the user lifecycle.
Learn about the security and compliance vulnerabilities of governing identities and segregating access with the concept of roles, and discover how governing at the entitlement level can improve access control.
Discover how to automate controls and reporting, and manage orphan accounts to ensure that former users don’t retain access after they leave the organization.
IBM Security Identity Governance and Intelligence gives you better control over access with visibility into entitlements - not just roles.
In a perfect world, managing the discovery of software assets, the capture of license entitlements and optimization of an organization’s software usage and compliance situation would be a single-click operation. Unfortunately, the world is not perfect and those charged with managing an organization’s software compliance, availability and expenditure face a number of challenges that can easily derail a Software Asset Management (SAM) program.
This paper from the SAM experts at Snow Software investigates some of the major challenges facing SAM managers and IT executives and highlights how to build a successful strategy to overcome them, ensuring the SAM program delivers true value to the business.
Not long ago, job roles were relatively easy to define and control. A person was an “accountant” or a “graphic designer” or a “business partner.” But as organizations grew and business software became more sophisticated, new roles were added. “Accountant, New York” might require different access to applications and data than “Accountant, Chicago.” The challenge comes from the recent explosion in the numbers and types of business roles.
