The FINANCIAL — Dell on September 22 announced the release of Dell One Identity Manager 7.0, a scalable, modular and integrated platform that enables organizations to unify security policies, meet compliance needs and achieve governance, while improving business agility both today and long term.
The solution enables compliance through access control and segregation of duties, complete visibility, and control that’s driven by identity intelligence and business objectives, according to Dell.
With Dell One Identity Manager 7.0, organizations can take advantage of a single, consistent IAM strategy – based on business needs, not IT capabilities – and incorporate a modular and integrated solution onto their traditional IAM frameworks. Business users benefit from a new self-service feature to manage the identity lifecycle process more easily, which further reduces the burden on IT. In fact, with the solution’s automated architecture, organizations can simplify major identity and access management tasks to a faction of the time or expense of traditional framework solutions.
Dell One Identity Manager 7.0 takes the risk out of enterprise identity and access management
For years, IT departments have been solely responsible for all elements of an organization’s security strategy. The burden on IT is even greater when it comes to traditional IAM frameworks, which are expensive to build and time-consuming to implement and maintain. To meet different business unit needs, IT often works with a siloed set of narrowly-focused tools and security policies, relying on manual processes for enforcement. Multiple information silos not only increase the attack surface of the organization, they also can negatively impact user productivity. When users find security workarounds, the environment becomes even more vulnerable to risk from both inside and outside the organization.
Dell One Identity Manager simplifies identity and access management and facilitates better security decisions so organizations can control user and privileged access, govern identities, secure data, and reduce information silos and risk exposure. It also provides auditors with real-time governance reports detailing the resources in customer environments, who has access to them, and why that access was granted and terminated. New features in this release include:
Heatmaps, dashboards and reporting enhancements
Increased definition and representation of heatmaps, dashboards and compliance reports
Resolve policy violations quickly, with better visibility through web UI for business users, data stewards and administrative staff
New ReST Architecture
Facilitates the exchange of information among an organization’s internal software and systems as well as external party systems
Increases security between components and enables customers to author their own user interface for particular tasks to better leverage company business processes
Web UI extensibility with HTML 5 support
Web UI split in three ways for extensibility and simplification: end user, governance, administrator
Increases business agility and responsiveness, regardless of the connected device
Provisioning and synchronization wizard
Provides easy, wizard-driven, centralized synchronization client to simplify the testing and provisioning to target systems
Decreases the time needed to provision a new user into the network
Componentization of core components
Reduces costs and upgrade complexities
Segregation of Duties definition enhancements
Provide easy definition and performance enhancements to SoD rule definitions
Reduce administrative time, while maintaining a higher level of compliance
Dell One Identity Manager 7.0 is now available worldwide and can be seen at the Dell World Software User Forum, Oct. 20-22 in Austin, Texas.
Dell solutions are available both directly and through channel partners.
