The 11.0 Release Automates Group Lifecycle Management on AD and other systems.

February 8, 2018 - Calgary, Alberta, Canada - Hitachi ID Systems is pleased to announce the release of a major version (11.0) of its Identity and Access Management Suite. The 11.0 release introduces group lifecycle management across integrated systems and applications:

  • Creating new and deleting no-longer-needed groups.
  • Enriching groups with attributes such as owner, risk score, division, etc.
  • Automatically populating groups with users who meet inclusion criteria.
  • Request/approval and review/revoke workflows for group membership.
  • Full support for nested groups, including attaching and removing child or parent groups.

“The greatest challenge to enabling comprehensive identity and access management is dealing with the complexity of today's diverse and dynamically changing user requirements,” noted Steve Brasen, Research Director with IT analyst firm Enterprise Management Associates. “The advanced group management capabilities and other enhancements introduced in version 11.0 of the Hitachi ID platform greatly simplify authentication and access privilege administration, ensuring appropriate levels of security while minimizing management efforts and related costs.”
