IAM, DAG, PAM: How to break the silos of security tools

IAM; PAM, DAG for Identities

Identity Access Management, PAM, DAG

Between 2009 and 2014, the number of successful attacks on information security increased at an average annual rate of 66%. Bearing in mind that insiders are responsible for two thirds of these attacks, managing users’ access rights with Identity Access Management has become a critical issue taken very seriously by senior management.

A large number of security solutions are now available, offering different value propositions. Identity Access Management (IAM), data access governance (DAG) and privileged account management (PAM) solutions each make their contribution at different levels to controlling access rights. As the common denominator, the user’s identity can be used to de-compartmentalize these solutions, culminating in an integrated security concept. In the following I will describe a framework for using these products based on user identity, and outlines an integrated architecture meeting IT security requirements over the long term.

Beta Systems will showcase their risk-driven Identity and Access Management suite at the Infosecurity Europe event which will be held in London on the 7th-9th June, 2016.

It is estimated that between 70-80% of all breaches of corporate information security are due to insiders. However, the right to data access of employees, contractors, partners and customers is one of the biggest vulnerabilities within IT security.

Access Governance Award for Beta Systems

Access Governance Award for Beta Systems at the EIC 2014 and 2015

Our GARANCY IAM Suite allows for collection and administration in a central repository for all information associated with users (identities, groups, roles), with components of the IT system (target systems) and with access rights. The use of Governance Workflows in the IAM system makes it possible for an enterprise to digitally design and accelerate all its processes associated to access rights. The browser-based solution for the efficient recertification of access rights enables companies to review the internal and external users’ access rights and to specify which managers are able to recertify or revoke user permissions. A Password Management module facilitates access to applications and simplifies the enforcement of IT security policies associated to passwords.
