Unreliable Deactivation - Hitachi ID Identity Manager

Business Challenge

In many organizations, user access to systems and applications remains long after the users themselves have gone. These orphan and dormant login accounts pose a serious security threat, since they can be compromised without anyone noticing.

Hitachi ID Identity Manager Solution
  • Identity Manager can automatically terminate user access to systems, triggered by changes to user status on a system of record, such as HR.
  • Identity Manager can identify orphan and dormant accounts -- orphans in the sense that they have no known owner and dormant in the sense that nobody has signed into them for some time. Such accounts are subjected to extra review and removed if they are truly not needed.

Using Identity Manager, organizations can make access deactivation processes fast, reliable and complete -- exactly what manual processes are not.
