What you need to know about IAM compliance certificates

Can IAM software provide certificates for the compliance  with legal regulations?

IAM Compliance Certificates

IAM Compliance Certificates

The introduction of IAM systems is often driven by the need for compliance with legal regulations. From high-level laws like the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) down to technical standards like ISO 27000 – the availability of an efficient Identity and Access Management is a prerequisite for the compliance with such frameworks. Therefore it is self-evident, that companies are asking vendors for the availability of general certificates that testify to be compliant with the individual regulation, when implementing the IAM solution.

To make a long story short:
Such certificates are either not available or of dubious validity.

What you need to know about IAM System Migration

Successful IAM System Migration

“If you have to decide for a new house – Would it look exactly like your current home?”

Replacement of IAM legacy systemsThe question of system migration is a boon companion for IAM customers. Over the years, some established solutions like BMC’s Control-SA and SUN’s Identity Manager had to leave the market for various reasons. For existing customers of such systems, the replacement of their current installation is becoming a compelling need for the near future. With regards to this enterprise, several vendors are advertising and promising a smooth migration from the existing legacy solution to their platforms.

They argue, that certain tools will help to automatically convert and migrate existing data configurations to the new environment. But to tell the truth, an IAM system migration is a comparable effort like moving a home. To stay in this picture: Would it be really a big advantage for you, if the mover could place your furniture in the new home without instructions, because the old ground plot could be used for the new destination?
