Hitachi ID Identity Manager

About Hitachi ID Identity Manager

Hitachi ID Identity Manager is an integrated solution for managing identities and security entitlements across multiple systems and applications. Organizations depend on Identity Manager to ensure that users get security entitlements quickly, are always assigned entitlements appropriate to their needs and in compliance with policy and are deactivated reliably and completely when they leave the organization.

Identity Manager implements the following business processes to drive changes to users and entitlements on systems and applications:

  • Automation: grant or revoke access based on data feeds.
  • Synchronization: keep identity attributes consistent across applications.
  • Self-service: empower users to update their own profiles.
  • Delegated administration: allow business stake-holders to request changes directly.
  • Certification: invite managers and application owners to review and correct entitlements.
  • Workflow: invite business stake-holders to approve or deny requested changes.

Business Challenge

Users have too many login IDs. A typical user in a large organization may sign into 10 to 20 internal systems. This complexity creates real business problems:

  • Redundant and expensive onboarding processes.
  • Slow and unreliable access deactivation.
  • Users with inappropriate security entitlements, who may be able to intentionally or accidentally harm the organization.

These problems lead to high IT support costs, poor user service and security vulnerabilities, in some cases violating regulatory requirements.
