Controlling Corporate IT Identity Chaos and Access Risks with Identity & Access Management Solutions from Beta Systems
- Protect IT systems from unauthorized and illegitimate access
- Automatic administration of all users across all departments and platforms
- Beta Systems shows latest solution generation at Gartner IAM Summit in Los Angeles
Berlin, 18 November 2013 – Companies are increasingly faced with the challenge of handling vast amounts of data generated by complex IT systems, as well as implementing and enforcing access control measures based on identity & access governance. Most companies deploy various dedicated applications and multiple platforms for each specialist department, and the users have widely differing access rights to these systems. The identity & access management solutions from Beta Systems allow companies to make access rights assignment traceable and, moreover, automate all IT user management processes. Cross-industry solutions minimize operational costs and ensure consistent adherence to internal and external IT security policies. Beta Systems is presenting its mature identity access management solution portfolio at the Gartner IAM Summit in Los Angeles from 18 to 20 November 2013.
The ‘SAM Enterprise Identity Manager’ and ‘Garancy Access Intelligence Manager’ solutions from Beta Systems provide extensive IAM and governance functions based on the most comprehensive user provisioning solution in the market. User information from HR systems, corporate directories and organizational databases are automatically turned into access authorizations for the integrated target systems. All required information is specifically prepared for each department in a comprehensible manner, making authorization structures highly transparent for IT administrators as well as for the specialist departments. All changes are visible and traceable, ensuring that all regulatory IT compliance provisions are met throughout the company. This allows companies to better protect the data and resources maintained in their IT systems from unauthorized and illegitimate access.
Whenever authorizations are allocated to employees, a multi-stage approval process simultaneously checks whether these authorizations are actually needed. For additional security, existing authorizations are checked on a regular basis (recertification). Beta Systems offers various workflow-based request and approval procedures in the context of access authorization management. The IAM solutions support automatic management of user accounts, enforcement of corporate policies, access authorizations and resource allocations. They reduce the costs of administration and further ensure that all users are allocated precisely the access authorizations required to fulfill their functions and tasks at any time.
Analyses and reports deliver the whole spectrum of security-relevant information, such as number of roles, groups, accounts or target systems per user. Dedicated dashboards providing weighted data and key risk indicators reveal critical security gaps and allow staff to perform targeted measures to prevent any type of abuse.
The new, modern user interface of the IAM products sets new standards for the usability of security software. In addition to offering comprehensive role management functions, the products can be integrated into a vast range of target systems, including the z/OS world. Highly scalable products deliver proven modules for application in the complex, heterogeneous IT environments of mid-sized and large corporations.
“It is in particular international corporations and industries with very high security requirements, such as financial service providers and health care companies, that rely on solutions from Beta Systems” says Arne Bassler, Director Strategy & Communication at Beta Systems Software AG. “We clean up the identity chaos that exists in companies and turn the identities into a key asset for all identity-related process optimizations.”
