Benefits of Autonomous Identity
Identity Governance and Administration (IGA) systems ensure that entitlement provisioning is compliant and consistent with company and regulatory standards. However, the entitlement landscape becomes less clear with the constant flux of employee movement and the high volume of entitlement provisioning to resources.
Nowadays, large global corporations have different and multiple hybrid environments for their applications and services; some on-prem, others in cloud, multi-cloud, and a combination of the three. Individual application dashboards are unable to provide a unified view of all entitlements across its network. Without this unified view, your company could be at risk for Segregation of Duties (SoD) violations, where multiple users approve an entitlement that could result in a security risk or possible internal fraud.
Many companies implement traditional role-based provisioning where roles are constantly added, removed, and edited as required. In fast-paced industries, administrators may carry-over many entitlements to new roles, while rubber-stamping additional privileges without clear assessment. When projects or employees change, roles become out-dated. Likewise, orphaned accounts or inactive entitlements are also pose as a risk. As a result, monitoring these role changes is a critical requirement for organizations.
Legal compliance regulations undergo strict yearly auditing. These audits require companies to know which entitlements exist within their organization, who has access to what resources, and how your company certifies these entitlements.
Autonomous Identity solves these problems and provides the following benefits:
Increased Security. Autonomous Identity displays a centralized and unified view of the full entitlement landscape across a company's services and applications. This unified view alerts you to possible entitlement outliers that could pose a security risk to your system, which you can manually remove after investigation.
Automated Workflows. Autonomous Identity calculates confidence scores for each entitlement, enabling you to automate many access functions that are currently run manually. These functions includes access request approval and certification. For example, when on-boarding new employees, Autonomous Identity can quickly automate basic access to resources specific to the user's job functions.
Near-Realtime Processing. You can run Autonomous Identity on a weekly basis; thus, ensuring that entitlement assignments are up-to-date.
Full Compliance. Autonomous Identity ensures that your IAM and IGA systems are fully compliant for regulatory standards and audits as it tracks all assigned entitlements.
Reduce Costs. When you automate many manual provisioning processes based on the confidence scores, you save time and money by reducing service tickets. Autonomous Identity also eliminates the need for monthly, quarterly, and yearly re-certification reviews by supervisors.
Intelligent Entitlements Management and Intelligent Role Mining. Autonomous Identity is well-suited for intelligent entitlements management and intelligent role mining.
