Enterprise Identity for Sun Microsystems

Intellitactics : 16 October, 2009  (New Product)
Intellitactics Security Manager now integrates with the latest version of Role Manager from Sun Microsystems enabling identity portfolio management on the platform
Intellitactics, a provider of appliances and software for enterprise security management and Sun Microsystems have announced that Intellitactics Security Manager (ISM) is the first security information and event manager (SIEM) to integrate with new version of Sun Microsystems Role Manager v.5. The new version of Role Manager along with Intellitactics ISM provides organizations with new tools to intelligently manage their identity portfolio. New features in Sun Role Manager 5.0 software enable organizations to move beyond answering the question of 'who has access to what?' to 'what did users do with their access?'

Sun Role Manager software is one of the first integrated role-based provisioning and auditing solutions to use business roles, such as job function and title, to assign, attest, audit, and enforce access across the enterprise. 'Combining Sun's Identity Management portfolio with Intellitactics Security Manager increases the efficiency and reduces the cost of compliance initiatives', says Nick Crown, the Director of Risk and Compliance. 'The combined solution automates the often manual process of enterprise-wide access certification providing a complete view of assigned user access along with relevant events and security alerts.'

'Compliance with regulatory standards and the pain of the high profile data breaches makes access control a priority for every company and government agency,' explains Sunil Bhargava, CTO, Intellitactics. 'We were eager to work on this project with SUN in anticipation of the new Role Manager release because we believe customers will benefit with improved efficiency that will save money while improving the effectiveness of security operations.

Intellitactics Security Manager provides the context necessary for monitoring user roles, permissions and privileges as defined by Role Manager. Then Role Manager provides the tools for proactively changing the entitlements that mitigate risk. '

Here's how the data, stored and correlated by ISM, benefits the Role Manager Users: ISM and Sun Role Manager automate tasks associated with monitoring and reporting that are essential to compliance and access control. The integration enables organizations to avoid the consequences of non-compliance and avoid data loss due to ineffective access controls. When customers are using ISM and Role Manager, as an example, audit exception reports such as Terminated User and Segregation of Duties Exception reports, offered by Role Manager, will contain actual user activity as noted in the managed systems audit logs collected by ISM.

Using the data provided by ISM, Role Manager Users will quickly understand whether a user has excessive privilege or entitlements and how often the entitlements have been exercised. The reports that include the information from ISM will identify excess privilege and identify segregation of duties boundaries. These kinds of reports are critical to problem avoidance which is less expensive than problem correction. ISM also provides instant access to alerts and high risk activities involving specific end point devices for account in question. This information is now available to the users of Role Manager during the certification process.
