Users with excessive or inappropriate privileges can potentially wreak havoc on a business, including violating compliance mandates or causing leakage of confidential data. The CA Technologies solution for identity management and governance provides the ability to manage and govern user identities and answers the question, “Who has access to what?” in a simple and cost-effective manner.
The CA identity management and governance solution includes CA GovernanceMinder™ and CA IdentityMinder™. This identity manager and governance solution is designed to improve your business’s efficiency, security and compliance by automating identity-related controls across physical, virtual and cloud environments.
Automating the process of granting and verifying application access based on each user's relationship and role with your organization—whether they are employees, contractors, customers or business partners—improves IT flexibility. It also helps to improve operational efficiencies and reduce security risks by on-boarding new users faster and ensuring people only have access that is appropriate in their job function.
CA IdentityMinder helps your organization prevent non-compliant provisioning activities, eliminates guesswork when providing role-based access to users and enables user self-service including access requests. This identity manager provides your employees, contractors and partners with the application access they need on the day they start and easily remove them when they leave the organization or their job role changes.
CA GovernanceMinder is designed to automate identity and access governance processes and provides continuous identity controls. This starts with leveraging a business friendly role foundation to present information to users in the context that makes sense to them. It also checks security policies and highlights potential access or entitlements violations to business managers during processes such as entitlements certification.
Access governance and entitlement certification help meet compliance requirements.
