Hitachi ID Identity Manager is designed for:
Identity Manager is installed on hardened servers. All sensitive data is encrypted in storage and transit. Strong authentication and access controls protect business processes.
Multiple Identity Manager servers can be installed, using a built-in data replication facility. Workload can be distributed using any load-balancing technology (IP, DNS, etc.). The end result is a multi-master, distributed architecture that is very easy to setup, as replication is handled at the application layer.
Identity Manager uses a normalized, relational and indexed database back end. All access to the database is via stored procedures, which help to minimize communication overhead between the application and database. All Identity Manager code is native code, which provides a 2x to 10x performance advantage as compared to Java or .NET
Open standards are used for inbound integration (SOAP) and outbound communications (SOAP, SMTP, HTTP, etc.).
Both the Identity Manager user interface and all functionality can be customized to meet enterprise requirements.
Identity Manager is easy to set up and requires minimal ongoing administration.
