Ivanti, the company that unifies IT to better manage and secure the digital workplace, and a Platinum Award Winner in the 2017 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program, is pleased to announce the Ivanti Identity Director has been nominated to compete in the 2018 ‘ASTORS’ Awards Program.

Cloud and mobile have transformed the way IT delivers services to business.

But these new technologies also complicate IT’s ability to manage identities and access and introduce new challenges around employee productivity.

Without an automated way to manage identities, IT has a difficult time managing complex access rules.

Ivanti Identity Director delivers modern identity management for today’s digital workforce.

It provides an attribute-based approach with identity workflow and automation to help enterprises securely deliver the right levels of access to apps and resources based on each employee’s identity.

Many IT teams struggle to support the employee onboarding process.

Getting the right access to the right apps and resources can often take days, even weeks.

Added to this, IT must keep up with role changes of an employee or contractor and the critical off-boarding process that protects access to key systems once an employee moves job roles or a contractor or employee leaves the organization.

Identity Director improves IT efficiency, streamlines onboarding and off-boarding, and gives the insight and visibility needed to reduce risk and ensure compliance standards are met.

A central identity warehouse aggregates an employee’s identity from existing internal systems such as HR and payroll systems, so IT can automatically deliver predictable services to individuals when needed, or workers can use self-service supported by automated workflows.

Designed for complex, hybrid environments, typical customers are mid-market enterprises with 2,000-10,000 workers.

Verticals include highly regulated and at-risk industries such as financial, healthcare, retail and government.

Unlike traditional approaches to identity and access management, Ivanti Identity Director:

  • Provides more than just role-based identity management;
  • Allows IT to utilize individual attributes and user context to automate the enforcement of business policy for access control
  • Includes automation that provides 300+ pre-built automation tasks and allows easy integration into third-party solutions to automate common IT tasks and access requests.
  • Helps IT strike a fine-tuned balance between security and enabling workforce productivity
  • Can be up and running quickly – resulting in immediate impact and ROI
  • Works across existing hybrid infrastructure (physical, virtual and cloud), allowing enterprises to maximize both their current and future investments

Balancing Access Controls and Productivity

Rising security risks and corresponding government regulation around data protection and internal governance policies make it more important than ever for IT to prioritize identity and access management.

By automating everything, from managing privileged access to the onboarding and offboarding of workers based on identity, IT can balance their responsibility of meeting compliance and governance requirements while providing workers with more flexibility than ever before.
