Too Many Security Groups - Hitachi ID Group Manager

Business Challenge
Hitachi ID Group Manager Solution

Most large organizations have a complex Active Directory infrastructure, with thousands of users and thousands of security groups. Managing the membership of large numbers of users in large numbers of security groups can be slow, costly and sometimes unreliable.

  • Group Manager allows organizations to clarify requests for security changes, enabling users to request access to resources with which they are familiar, rather than for membership in groups, with which they are not.
  • Group Manager tracks change requests through approval by business stake-holders, who have the contextual knowledge to decide whether a given request is appropriate or not.
  • By delegating requests and approvals to business users, Group Manager reduces the security administration burden on IT.

Using Group Manager, organizations can eliminate most of the AD group management process, moving it back to the user community.
