IAM: Control IT access of thousands of external employees

How to find an IAM solution that controls access of thousands of external employees to hundreds of IT applications.

IndustryLarge-scale projects represent a major challenge as regards IT security, because it is not only the thousands of employees who use the IT systems; in addition, often thousands of external employees from several hundreds of partner companies also need to access a broad range of applications while working on the project. The Identity Access Management must ensure that all involved have the required access rights at the right time, as well as revoking the rights as soon as they are no longer needed.

In large-scale project a staff of several thousand is involved. Assume that about half of them are office workers, meaning they require access to the IT applications. But no single company can build major industrial projects alone e.g. a power station or an airport, so a large number of external subcontractors and experts are involved in the project.

Access Rights and Role Assignment with SAM Enterprise Identity Manager

Simple User Administration – Even without the IT Department

DEVK Insurance Group: Identity and Access Management

More effective and efficient IAM

Giving specialist departments the ability to self-administrate certain access rights greatly reduces the workload of IT staff. The DEVK insurance group implemented this strategy for optimized access management with the help of SAM Enterprise Identity Manager from Beta Systems. For DEVK this means much simpler and faster access rights allocation across all corporate IT systems. Even employees with little or no technical skills can assume basic user administration tasks.

DEVK has been insuring German policy holders against the risks of everyday life for over 125 years. At present, the DEVK Group is tending to approximately 4 million customers, insuring them against 14 million risks across all segments.

The upcoming update to the latest SAM Enterprise Version 2.1 underscores the insurer’s goal of further intensifying ‘specialist department self-governance’: The group is planning to introduce SAM Business Process Workflow, which will enable simple, browser-based individual request processes on the department level.

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?
