Enterprise Identity Management

Enterprise Identity and Access Management (IAM) is defined as a set of processes and technologies to effectively and consistently manage modest numbers of users and entitlements across multiple systems. In this definition, there are typically significantly fewer than a million users, but users typically have access to multiple systems and applications.

Typical enterprise identity and access management scenarios include:

  • Password synchronization and self-service password reset.
  • User provisioning, including identity synchronization, auto-provisioning and automatic access deactivation, self-service security requests, approvals workflow and consolidated reporting.
  • Enterprise single sign-on -- automatically filling login prompts on client applications.
  • Web single sign-on -- consolidating authentication and authorization processes across multiple web applications.

Hitachi ID Identity Manager is designed to manage user accounts, identity information and security entitlements on a variety of systems and applications. It helps organizations to:

  • Reduce costs, by replacing manual IT support processes with automation and self-service.
  • Improve user productivity by simplifying change requests and eliminating long wait times for security changes.
  • Strengthen security through policy enforcement and reliable access deactivation.

Identity Manager includes built-in connectors to manage users and entitlements on over 120 kinds of systems and applications, on-premise and in the cloud.
