RSA Identity Governance and Lifecycle simplifies how access is governed and streamlines access requests and fulfillment. The solution helps you focus on what matters most to mitigate risk and maintain a continuous state of compliance.
RSA Identity Governance and Lifecycle delivers continuous access assurance for organizations to help ensure that users across the organization have the proper level of access. By providing visibility across your islands of identity in today’s blended cloud and on-premises environment, RSA Identity Governance and Lifecycle empowers business users to take action quickly and easily to address risky access situations with the highest business impact in order to reduce business risk and ensure compliance.
RSA Identity Governance and Lifecycle takes a governance-first approach to manage identity risk and ensure that the security posture of the organization is intact with regard to user access. This is accomplished by automating access review and certification processes for greater operational efficiency, cost and time savings, and by flagging issues between formal review campaigns. In addition, access certification responsibility and accountability are transferred to the people who understand access needs best—the business. Business-driven certification discourages access approval “rubber stamping.” Business users are provided with prioritized access issues based on risk informed by intelligence so they are empowered to take action with insight on what matters most.
- RSA Identity Governance and Lifecycle enables you to implement security and compliance controls (e.g., segregation of duties, unauthorized access permissions) to ensure policy and control objectives are met continuously
- To ensure users quickly gain access to the applications they need, RSA Identity Governance and Lifecycle provides the ability to grant access based on user roles and well-defined processes that enable the manager to provide access in a user-friendly way. It also manages entitlements (joiners, movers and leavers) across applications to ensure access stays current with users’ roles and that there is no overprivilege. The entire process of access request, approval and provisioning is automated using business-friendly language for approvals in order to ensure that users obtain appropriate access quickly
- Ease of Use and Scalability—In order to respond to ever-changing business needs and a dynamic threat landscape, RSA Identity Governance and Lifecycle provides security teams with the ability to configure and update policies, processes and controls quickly with point-and-click configuration tools that do not require customization and that provide quick time-to-value. In addition, high scalability allows your business to grow without needing to worry about the system, a critical factor given the number of applications and identities involved in business processes.
- Quick Starts and Blueprints—To ensure that your organization is managing identity risk effectively, we have recently introduced best practices and blueprints to provide a set of use cases and recommendations to allow you to speed your time-to-deployment and time-to-value.
