Unreliable Deactivation - Hitachi ID Identity Manager
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.
- 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.
