This white paper examines some of the challenges that modern organizations face in their efforts to develop and adapt a compliance program that can solve today's needs and support new requirements in the future.
As security threats increase and government regulations require more control over users and data, it is important for organizations to evolve their security measures. As enterprises rapidly expand their footprints into cloud, mobile and social, they must ensure that the right users have the right access to sensitive data and applications. Strong as well as optimized identities are becoming increasingly important as insider threat and tightened regulations become more prevalent.

This guide is designed to help ensure a successful identity governance strategy can move your organization toward sustainable compliance, reduced risk, improved service levels and lower operational costs.
Current Identity Governance and Administration (IGA) solutions have optimized heavily for complete customization, leaving customers with full flexibility in designing rules and workflows. The problem is that it takes these solutions too long to deploy, at too high a cost, and rarely do they deliver on the ROI that was originally anticipated. Okta believes there is a better way, and a way to reach a much broader set of organizations, by building a cloud-based IGA product that is optimized for out-of-the-box capability and is easily configurable.

Our analysis of the survey findings indicates that as enterprise organizations attempt to respond to the need to provide more access to more information online, the ability to govern that access is being strained to a breaking point.
While it’s clear what the potentials of cloud computing are for your organization, it may be unclear the adjustments your IT organization will need to make in transitioning to the cloud.
This guide is designed to help your IT team more effectively implement and integrate cloud technologies. You’ll explore key cloud concepts as well as Azure-specific tips and tactics around:
General architectures that incorporate security, identity, and cloud design principles.
DevOps and how it fits with cloud technologies.
Integrating, planning, and managing cloud resources.
Microsoft Azure governance.
The cloud is here to stay, and Microsoft SharePoint users are finally making the move. Since 2013, the number of SharePoint users with intentions of moving their SharePoint sites to the cloud has doubled, according to a 2015 AIIM survey.1 Many users are making the change to reduce IT costs, improve access for external partners and increase mobility.
Casey, IT manager at a mid-size healthcare organization, is one of those users planning to move his organization to a cloud-based SharePoint infrastructure. But because Casey works in healthcare, he’s especially concerned about the security of the cloud. And he’s not alone with that concern — AIIM reports that 62 percent of SharePoint users cite security as their biggest concern when considering a cloud or hybrid solution for SharePoint.
More specifically, many SharePoint users are concerned about the following three areas of security in the cloud:
• Identity and access
• Data protection and privacy
• Compliance and governance
IBM Security Identity Governance and Administration provides an integrated, business-centric approach to help organizations improve security and reduce costs for managing accounts, groups, policies, credentials and access rights throughout the user lifecycle.
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.
The right identity governance and administration solution can help you control access risks and segregation-of-duties violations. It can help you manage user roles, access policies and risk - so you can apply and enforce appropriate levels of access across your enterprise.
Identity governance is essential for oganizations to ensure the security of their IT systems and data as well as compliance with laws and regulations. Identity governance enables organizations manage IT related business risk and enable business compliance in consistent, efficient and effective manner. It adds value, reduces costs and improves security
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.
As security threats increase and government regulations require more control over users and data, it is important for organizations to evolve their security measures.
By aligning governance related policies and rules with all identity management processes, organizations can achieve continuous, sustainable compliance, thereby reducing the need for after the fact fixes and expensive, error prone manual remediation.
IBM Security Identity Governance and Intelligence helps organizations effectively, comprehensively manage identities and application access
