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.

How to get fit for an IAM implementation

What you need to do before you start an IAM implementation

Fit for an IAM implementation

How to get fit for an IAM implementation

There are several measures you can and should take to prepare for the successful, efficient and on-target IAM implementation. The more carefully such a project is planned, the smoother and simpler the actual implementation will turn out.

Many IAM projects end up exceeding the planned time and budget many times over. The possible reasons are manifold, but generally not only the system provider is to blame – instead, more likely than not, the project preparation and definition of the required specialist concepts was also flawed.
