Courion Delivers Industry’s First End-to-End Intelligence-Driven Identity & Access Management Suite
Embedded Intelligence Enables Organizations to Start Compliant and Stay Compliant, Reducing Access Risk that May Lead to a Breach
WESTBOROUGH, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Courion®, the market leader in intelligent identity and access management (IAM), today announced that it has delivered the industry’s first end-to-end intelligence-driven IAM suite with the introduction of the latest version of the Access Assurance Suite. The 8.4 revision uses powerful analytics to provide insight, enabling IAM to be driven based on knowledge gleaned continuously from an enterprise’s identity and access data repositories. This intelligence-driven approach informs and improves the entire IAM lifecycle with continuous monitoring, from initial user provisioning through governance.
“Integrating intelligence at the point of provisioning ensures that users receive access in accordance with business policies from day one”
With this revision of the Courion Access Assurance Suite, business policy validation is fully integrated into the access definition and user provisioning process in real time. As a result, inappropriate access assignments can now be flagged from the start and prevented.
The new functionality complements the intelligent IAM suite’s existing continuous monitoring capabilities, which detect access-related business policy violations whenever they occur, enabling provisioning remediation without the need for human intervention and further automating the governance process.
Now when an access request is submitted, the embedded intelligence engine alerts the user with a list of business policy violations. For example, an alert would be triggered automatically if a user requested access to both create purchase orders and approve orders, a Segregation of Duty (SoD) business policy violation. The user is subsequently able to remedy the violation or request a policy exemption. All approvers can easily view the history of the request along with any follow-on exemption requests, providing a more intuitive and holistic access approval process.
Together, the suite’s intelligence-based provisioning, monitoring and continuous compliance capabilities make it possible for an organization to be compliant from the start and to stay compliant on an ongoing basis. As a result, access risk is reduced and periodic audits are streamlined.
“Integrating intelligence at the point of provisioning ensures that users receive access in accordance with business policies from day one,” said Pete Lindstrom, Research Director, Security Products, IDC. “In addition, applying this approach to continuous monitoring capabilities can alert an administrator when user access falls out of compliance so that access can be remedied. Together, these offer a useful way for an organization to control access-related risk.”
The Access Assurance Suite includes PasswordCourier®, which provides self-service password re-set and password synchronization capabilities; AccountCourier®, which automates the creation and management of user accounts from new hire through termination both on premise and in the cloud; Access Request Manager, which centralizes and standardizes how access is requested for IT systems and physical assets, RoleCourier®, which simplifies and standardizes the process of defining policies for “who should have access to what” by establishing enterprise roles; ComplianceCourier™, an access recertification solution which enables you to discover who has access to what and streamlines the access review process; and Access Insight, an identity and access intelligence solution which provides intuitive analytics so you can identify and remediate immediate access risk threats and continuously monitor user access compliance.
